    The title says it.
    I took out my friend's double barrel Rossi to see how it shot. I loaded up both barrels and after I pulled the forward trigger...nothing happened. After further inspection, i noticed that the firing pin that was normally pushed forward by the exterior hammer was broken off and not even coming close to making contact with the primer of the shell. It is the type of double barrel with the two external hammers.

    Any ideas on what parts i need, where i can get them, and the process of replacing that broken firing pin? Thanks.
