Just announced by
TK4B Enterprises, LLC. is
a newly designed and developed Firing Pin especially for those TTN
aficionados in the Classic Cowboy category.
The SliXPin is designed to replace the shorter, and most times
bent, existing firing pin.
Field tests by local TTN shooters over several weeks and multiple shoots
have proven the SliXPin will improve primer contact and will adjust for
the worn and cratered hammers in the side-lock action. Most of the test
shooters discovered they did not have to re-face their hammers, that the
extra rear length provided the necessary dimension for continued
consistent firing. Like
most of TK4B products it is manufactured with proprietary metal stock to
ensure a long lasting improvement. The SliXPin is further designed to be
as close to a ‘drop-in’ unit as possible to the point of being able to
use your existing spring. . Inappropriate installation procedures can
destroy or reduce its effectiveness.
Because there are so many different tolerances and
dimensions between production runs and even individual shotguns, this
may not be a totally a drop-in replacement.
Although we have watched adequate gun repairmen correctly install
the pin, if you have a little experience with working on them go for it,
but we encourage you to contact your local smith or tuner.
The only critical issues while installing the
SliXPin is are to cut about 1-1/2 to two coils from the bottom of the
original spring and be certain that the top end, or smaller diameter
coil, is fit over the lower shoulder on the Pin before inserting into
the frame. See the picture above to get an idea of the proper fit and
The manufacturers want to clearly point out that if
you have little or no idea how these springs are supposed to fit and
work, get help or find someone who does know how to install them.
Due to all the variations in machining tolerances, this is
“one-size-fits-all-perfectly” drop-in set.
It may take some individual
