WTB, firing pin for 1889 Marlin

#1 Post by fordwannabe » Tue Nov 19, 2019 9:31 am

Hello all, I am in need of a firing pin for my first year production Marlin 1889. I went to the range Sunday loaded her up with my reloads pulled the trigger and CLICK. Assessed and depressed. RATS RUMP! If anyone has one I sure would be interested. Thanks. Tom

I know several people that have turned to Wisners for help with hard to find parts and had great success. You might try them.

Great idea! But I already looked and they are out of stock. Great minds though.

You might find a 'parts gun' on gunbroker or gunsamerica.

When I was a kid, a neighbor guy made a front-half firing pin for the 1889 Marlin I inherited, and it worked will until a few years later Wisner's had one I could buy. I think he could have made the entire firing pin, given some time, just using a piece of scrap steel and a file.

Yeah, if I knew what it looked like I may have one. I have a lot of gun parts that I have no idea what they fit. Some are identified as to make but not by model or function. So if you've got the old part's pieces, take their picture. Put a scale next to the part so we have some idea of it's size. As an example we have two tackle boxes that are labeled Winchester and contain 30 lbs of parts. From a model 70 bolt to a 94 magazine tube plug. Yes those extremes I know what they are but most of it is a mystery.

When my firing pin broke the rear portion fell out and is missing. Soooo can’t do that. But Wisner has a pretty good picture.
