So the other day I was at the range with my Rossi SRC in 38 Special / 357 Magnum and I short-stroked the lever and pulled the trigger. *click* — that was to be expected.

But the next trigger pull also resulted in a *click* — Hmmm, broken firing pin.

Of course these things are not available locally, but a question on GunSite put me in contact with  Adlow Engineering (speak to Leon), and R700 got me a new firing pin.


Of course some hand fitting (grindstone and file) was required. No, this is not a trick photograph, I ordered two, kept one for a spare.

The pin is still a bit long, gives a very positive strike. I might have to stone it down a bit more.
