 Finley I recived the pin to hold the firing pin in, and if u have to take the pin out for some reason replace the spring, right behind the extractor and extractor button is the spring {in plain sight} so I can understand why some problems happen with the spring  and pin happen , ,,,johnnys r51   

                       HOPE ALL THE R51'S ARE WORKING OUT,,,,cant waite to get back to Florida to get my range time caught up ,,,, hello to everybody

R51 General Discussion / Re;; R51 Breech block
« on: April 01, 2018, 03:06:32 PM »
 I order a breech block said it was complete ,came bare , so I called and order a extractor , extractor button ,
extractor pin;;NOTE,, the pin is taper so it will only go in one way and comes out the top,(u can push the pin in the block and threw the extractor the last 1/16in u need a punch}  Now I also order a
 firing pin ,firing pin spring , and 3 different firing pin pins,(as they did not have it on the picture in the manual and I guess that if it is not in the pic its lost) none will work ,{all came from Big Green} so if any body has to take out the firing pin pin, if you can measure it Please do and post the size , if it is tapper I will use a split roll pin , (the pin next to the firing pin is not the right pin)
