    Replacement firing pin on Historic Arms SA Bren?

    From what I've read, looks like I've encountered a common problem. The firing pin broke on my Historic Arms LLC semi-auto Bren.

    Are replacement pins available? I've had no luck searching for them online. Wiselite pins, yes, but haven't seen any for the HA.

    Hate to see her rendered a paperweight (albeit a quite lovely paperweight) for want of a firing pin.

    Thanks for any leads!

    Hereís what a quick search came up with.

    Historic Arms Llc
    1486 Cherry Rd
    Franklin GA 30217
    (706) 675-0818
    (706) 675-0287

    If you canít get one from Len, donít worry. The firing pin is an easy part to make. Take the broken one you have to a good reputable gunsmith and have one made. Probably a good idea to take the gun and see if the gunsmith can figure out why it broke.

    How does the Historic Arms firing pin differ from the Wise Lite Arms?

    This is the Wise Lite Arms firing pin. Bren Firing Pin

    Since they both use the original retaining pin in the bolt... the front halves are essentially the same. The HA pin's rear is a circular cross section of reduced diameter from the retaining pin area.



    Where along the firing pin's length did the break occur?
