    Hi folks,
    I need a firing pin for a lee metford rifle. I have a .410 made from the Metford action but it needs a new pin.

    Can anyone help please? does anyone know of any spares sources?


    Thanks

    Steve

    Note that the OP is in England. Even if Gun Parts Corp. or Springfield Sporters had that firing pin, it would be hard to export it, nevermind that it would be going back where it came from. AFAIK, the firing pin of the MLM is not the same as the one for the common SMLE.

    I think Interlock would have a much greater chance of finding that MLM part in England than here.
