Firing pin magnetized


Recommended Posts

Not really normal, but if you leave one laying in a magnetic parts dish or hanging off a magnetic screwdriver shaft, it might happen. 


Not a problem firing.  The mainspring is MUCH stronger force than the magnetic attraction will ever be.  I would wipe the FP off with a rag each time before reassembling it in slide, just in case it picked up a steel sliver while lying on your work bench.


A degausser for magnetic tape will demagnetize that pin if you want to be sure.  Look at a full stock high-end audio shop.


Good luck, GJ
