I've used them in several guns. If you are installing them in a "stock" AR, they will show absolutely no benefit - Save Your Money.

They are beneficial dealing with light primer strikes when using reduced power trigger/hammer springs. I have also seen a benefit on target guns.

This is a often debated topic, so take this for what it is worth.

Have you ever broken one? I have AR's with 3-4K rounds through them, and absolutely NO problems with the Ti firing pin, and fellow shooters that have had the same experience with their weapons.

If you're speaking from personal experience, I apologize, but don't spout the same old drivel based on something you've heard.

what he said, and they're titanium-oxide coated, not of solid titanium, Titanium is brittle so it would have to be forged, which would cost and arm,leg and your first born.

Sorry , but you are mistaken. They are constructed of Titanium. The better Ti firing pins are also coated with Titanium-Nitride, which gives the firing pins a VERY hard surface and a gold color.

Ti firing pins ARE very expensive.

I can't see a need for one, but I'm not a match shooter and none of my ARs are match guns. If you've got a standard AR then a standard firing pin is all you'll every need.

If it ain't broke don't fix it!

I've never had any firing pin issues with the good old steel ones in an AR or M16, so I'm sticking with the tried and true.
