Broken Smith & Wesson 22a Firing Pin

My Smith & Wesson 22a pistol firing pin broke in half. One day at the range I just pulled the trigger and nothing happened. When I got home I took it apart only to find that the firing pin was broken. I had to wait a few days for a replacement pin but replacing it was easy and required no special tools or equipment.

How To Get A Replacement Firing Pin For A S&W 22A Pistol

For me, I emailed Smith & Wesson and they sent me a new one (along with some other spare parts that I wanted) to me for free. I'm sure they can help you. They responded very quickly.

Dear Sir/Madam,
The firing pin of my Smith & Wesson Model 22a, 22LR Pistol, 5 1/2” Barrel pistol broke last Thursday (see picture).
Could you please send me a new one? I would also like to replace my recoil spring and the recoil spacer (spare parts detail #33). I would also like spare recoils spacers if possible.
Thank you.
Best regards,


Tanner

Response - Chris,

The pin on my Smith & Wesson 22a broke last year too. It was easy to get a replacement.

 

Reply - Hey Tanner,
Thank you for the great information. I called Smith and Wesson yesterday and they also told me they would send me a new one. Great advice and thank you for the quick response. Happy shooting with your 22A! Thanks again.
Chris
