For people who've been concerned about the broken firing pin and light strike issues, Galloway Precision is apparently working on a tool-steel firing pin and higher rate mainspring and it's their top priority based on the prevalence of emails they've received regarding both issues.

I received an email saying the part print on the firing pin is done and would be submitted to a manufacturer for bid yesterday. The spring is being modeled by their spring maker.

I'm looking forward to being able to trust my otherwise very shootable pocket pistol again.

Couldn't hurt to let Galloway know if you're looking forward to this-- should keep things rolling along.


The've also got an improved trigger bar on the way apparently, though I'm not sure how the combination of it and the higher rate spring will affect shootability.

I'm fine with the trigger. I'd prefer a barrel that isn't MIM.
Sometimes, the only way to convince someone they're wrong is to shoot them in the face.

You have the right to be offended.

I was unaware of this. Just looked it up.

Apparently I've got a collector's piece.

Fuck Smith & Wesson. That laser is a POS too, but I just took the batteries out and loctited the screw. I'm done with their cheap construction and QC. My BG will hopefully be made gtg by the GP parts but I'll be damned if I ever take a chance on S&W's incompetent, bean counting engineers again. Customer service may be responsive generally but I've found them to be ignorant part-swappers trained to lie about endemic issues, and they can't help you in a gunfight.

My old bodyguards have barrels that look completely different than the new mim ones. This MIM business is becoming ridiculous, as I gave seen MIM parts explode where a machined part will bend/expand.

I will definitely get the machined strikers
