Fox News is reporting that Colt and Remington are threatening to move their manufacturing to western states if NY and Connecticut move forward with plans to require micro-stamping of firing pins.

Is it me... or does this make it extremely enticing for criminals to steal casings or someones commercial pre-packaged ammo?

Utterly useless legislation. Criminals are criminals because they don't follow the law. I bet a huge statistical majority of guns used by them are illegally acquired guns (A.K.A. stolen). That's not going to help much, what it is going to do though is open up lawsuits by people that fell victim to these criminals against the legit gun owners who had their weapons stolen. The lawyers will state if they didn't buy a gun, or had it stored properly it wouldn't have ever been stolen. Crazier lawsuits have been filed and won.

I made a new firing pin for an older shotgun recently. I used a piece of 1/4" rod, shaped it with a set of files whith it clamped in a vise. Test fired it, took it out and heat treated it. put it back together.
so , my answer is . go ahead, microstamp your heart out.

All you gotta do it have at the micro stamp with a file and the number would come right off. Also I'm not certain micro stamping could even be possible.

Wait a minute, now I am confused. I thought if you filed down the firing pin it made the gun a machine gun.

Chuck up the firing pin in your cordless drill, spin it at high speed, and touch the tip with a piece of very fine sandpaper for a few seconds and the stamping is gone.


Microstamping is not intended to make crimes easier to solve. It is merely another way the antis are trying to implement gun control. Don't think it's anything else.

They are also interchangable.

They can also be tampered with - and even if it is a felony to tamper with them, it's not going to stop someone who intends to use it to commit a more serious crime anyway.

Why do these politicians not see how utterly useless some of their brain-farts are.


They do. They just want to ban guns and incrementalism works.

So, you're contemplating murder or armed robbery? Those are serious felonies. But you're gonna balk at sandpapering a firing pin? Left wing logic at it's best.

hell.. file off the serial number of a gun and see how that goes..

It would probably go just fine, actually. When's the last time you heard of someone getting busted solely for mutilating serial numbers?

Firing pin would even be less enforceable.

Concrete nail.


If you were to try to buy one, they would be called "duplex" nails.
They are used to nail together concrete forms. The second head allows them to be pulled apart easily.

Anyone with any mechanical ability can create a firing pin from any rod of metal. Most all you need is a drill and a file.. maybe some sandpaper.
If you are really cool, and own a lathe, you could go into the bootleg firing pin business.

Sounds to me like micro-stamping is just a way to have to add more laws so firearms can now be "inspected" at will to see if they are compliant.

If it's illegal to polish a firing pin, it's news to me. It's just part of a good, complete job of fine tuning the entire action.

Gun Owners Victorious in New York

Posted on June 27, 2012

Last week, the New York Legislature wrapped up its 2012 regular legislative session with the microstamping mandate being blocked for the fifth consecutive year. Despite a last minute attempt by anti-gunners to push Assembly Bill 1157B through the Assembly by an 85 to 60 vote on June 19, the Senate rightfully refused to move this ill-conceived gun control scheme.

Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.

Not exactly. They paid a maintenance fee so one of the microstamping patents wouldn't expire. Some Cali microstamping law has a provision so it would only go into effect if the technology was available to manufacturers free of all patent encumbrances. So even though the inventor could say he wasn't going to sue anyone for infringement, just the fact that calguns renewed his right to sue was enough to trigger that part of the law.

Then you really could get in trouble for "filing down the firing pin".

Microstamping is not intended to make crimes easier to solve. It is merely another way the antis are trying to implement gun control. Don't think it's anything else.


What did that fat fuck Howard Metzenbaum say once...."I don't care about crime, I just want to get the guns."


Yeah, that was it.

Great in theory, Felony in practice.


So, you're contemplating murder or armed robbery? Those are serious felonies. But you're gonna balk at sandpapering a firing pin? Left wing logic at it's best.

Tell me that you honestly think that you wont get charged if caught? Odds are small, yes, but..

hell.. file off the serial number of a gun and see how that goes..


It would probably go just fine, actually. When's the last time you heard of someone getting busted solely for mutilating serial numbers?

Firing pin would even be less enforceable.





If I had a microstamped firing pin, I'd remove it, put it in a vise and bend it until it breaks. Then I'd install a new unmarked pin. And if any pointy headed officials wanted to know why, I'd say, "the firing pin broke and I had to replace it"

It's probably just you.

After all, have you ever heard of an ill-conceived, completely useless gun law being passed?

Yeh, I didn't think so!

Another layer of bullshit for gun companies like the fired cases , We could have a swap meet and mix up firing pins on like guns
