    Can anyone help me find a firing pin for a speed six 357? It is a 1976 200 Year gun. Or where I can send it to get it fixed. I was told by local gunsmith that it needs a firing pin and spring. I`d like to send it to Ruger or a good gunsmith, if I can find out where and how to send it. Thanks in advance Jerry

    I would try ruger first,i would think that they
    used the same firing pin on all the "'six"
    series of pistols. www.ruger.com will get
    you started.

    Sounds funny to me. Exactly *why* does the gun allegedly need a new firing pin? My agency had a bunch of them; I have used these guns hard for over 20 years, plus I had Ruger's armorer training on them and the GP-100s. Never, ever heard of a firing pin problem of any type whatsoever.

    If you are getting light hammer strikes and misfires that is likely a spring problem. Post your situation here and we may figure something out. Alternatively just box it up with a note and ship it in to Ruger. They made it and they know how to fix it. Replacement of a firing pin is a factory job anyway, and I doubt they would supply the part to anyone outside in any case.
