slide, to hold it in place while you compress the firing pin spring. Grip the upper end
of the firing pin spring firmly, and pull it down until the firing pin spring cups become
loose. Grip the firing pin spring cups carefully and lift them upward away from the firing

compress it against the spacer sleeve and hold it firmly in place. With the spring compressed,
carefully place each spring cup into position at the top of the spring. Be sure to orient
the cups so they do not meet at the end of the spring. With both spring cups in the correct
position, slowly release tension on the firing pin spring until the spring cups are tightly
held in place against the “step” on the firing pin as shown. Next, remove the firing pin

  1. I have to comment as I have purchased three lonewolfdist.com skeletonized titanium striker pins in the past. Two have snapped in the same way with minimal use to include during dry fire one of those times. The company by now must know their skeletonized titanium strikers are a defective design but the company still sells them. I usually don't believe in lawsuits but I think a class action lawsuit may be in order as I have read many complaints of the exact same breakage and still no recall? After my first one
    broke I returned it and www.lonewolfdist.com send me a defective replacement pin (same defective design).
