    I have a Beretta Pico and I broke the firing pin. I bought a replacement from Brownells and noticed it was stainless and the original that broke looks like carbon steel. I assume the replacement is stronger, correct? Any insight would be appreciated.

    Btw, I really like the Pico!

    How can you tell one is stainless steel and the other is carbon steel just by the look ? Please educated me, thanks and regards.

    Was it during dry firing or actual shooting?

    I assumed carbon was blued in appearance and stainless is well....stainless. It broke while I was using a snap cap.
