I have a new Glock 19 & Glock 27 non- mim complete firing pin assemblies and am trying to price them correctly to sell on the EE. Any recommendations on price?

Same price as you can buy a new MIM part maybe less if they are used.

This. You might find someone who will pay more to get the old one.

Since you don't see the the MIM pins break, same or less.

There was a police department, in Florida i think, that had a problem with broken firing pins and pulled the guns out of service.
Link Posted: 12/7/2015 9:13:36 PM EDT
Other than Glock, who makes the best non-MIM Glock strikers?
Link Posted: 12/7/2015 9:24:57 PM EDT

Great....another thing for me to worry about.

The question is would a tool steel striker have broke under the same circumstances?

Lone Wolf steel striker, that's what is in my newer Glocks.
Link Posted: 12/26/2015 12:57:23 AM EDT
I just broke the tip off the replacement striker in the same glock 17 from my post above. This striker had about 1,000 rounds through it. Ugh!  Gun is all stock. I don't get it.

This is the internet. Your health symptoms are no different than threads like this to worry about.
If it were that big of an issue I think that the Glock page would be loaded with nothing but failures of this type.
I have been shooting Glocks since 1989 and never had any breakage of any part yet.
Link Posted: 12/26/2015 1:04:26 AM EDT
Well all stock except for night sites and vickers mag release.
Link Posted: 12/26/2015 1:34:07 AM EDT
i just send my stripped slide in and have them install night sights and they send you extra parts for free

Lots of dry fire?

Does Glock make a non MIM striker to be purchased separately?
If not, who is considered the best manufacture?
Mine are all Gen 4's (19, 26, 21)
Link Posted: 12/30/2015 6:15:16 PM EDT
Wish Apex would build one. Anything Lone Wolf is questionable to me.

I bought a tool steel firing pin from ZEV last week. Looks well made, whatever that's worth. some of the others I looked at had holes drilled in them to make them lighter. The ZEV has some scallops, not holes, leaving the cross section thicker. I liked that.

I dry fire my 19 a whole lot more than my 17 and have yet to break a striker. My duty 21 is 18 years old and I couldn't even guess how much dry firing I've done with that. Since this is the second one in the 17 I'm wondering if there is something wrong with the gun.  I have no idea what it could be because it was fine for the first 5 or so years.

It's got to be the gun. I've owned at least a dozen Glocks since they went MIM and have never broken a firing pin. I shoot at least 10,000 rounds per year and dry fire a lot.
Link Posted: 1/1/2016 2:35:14 AM EDT
Yes it was a new spring.
Link Posted: 1/1/2016 11:34:35 AM EDT
I'd send it back and also tell them you're an LEO .
