The only reason to add a lighter firing pin is to decrease lock time, and in an AR the major component of lock time is hammer fall time, so don't waste your money.

I would sell the firing pin to someone who thinks they are neat.

Stay with the original parts.

Firing pin is a broken piece waiting to happen, and the bolt won't do a damn thing a stock bolt won't do equally well. The Macfarland gas rings are OK I've been told, but I wouldn't bother installing it until and unless your stock rings wear out or one breaks.

But paint it black first so it will be tactical...

I know from experience that the titanium firing pins are to brittle. My broke in like the first 1500 rounds or something. I personally would not trust the bolt being titanium but either way you would always have your originals for a backup. As for the macfarland rings...those work great and have had zero issues with them. I would install those but be careful with the titanium parts.
