They do not use MIM for firing pins.


I didn’t think they did, but are we sure? I haven’t looked at a gen 5 during pin yet. That would not be cool if they started to.

Well, I've read about 365s, M&Ps and now Glocks all breaking strikers.


CZ P10C also I have read about. Canik had a lot of them breaking on their striker fired pistols.

Was meeting with one of the regional U.S. reps this week, he says non MIM. They are machined steel. He's been to the factory.

This is my experience at the factory as well. The locking blocks and the extractors are MIM and the firing pins are machined.

CzP07's the first thing I replace is the FP from Cajun gun works.
Actually broke one on a HKP2000 also.

I broke a firing pin on a Browning HP. I didn't find out until I took it apart for a different reason. It still fired fine.

Ok, so where did OP get that MIM info from? Did he assume it was? Did he read on the internet? Or, Glocks sold in Europe actually have MIM firing pins? Inquiring minds want to know.

I have a late production G17 Gen4 and the firing pin broke at just over 8k rounds . Glock told me they consider it a wear part and it’s not covered under warranty.

You guys with the broken firing pins/strikers etc. do you do a lot of dryfire? If so snapcap or no snapcap? Just curious. I always try to use snap caps.

To be clear i'm not bashing glock i'v bought 10 of them. I think it's a bad batch of strikers or something else. It can happens. Never experienced that with the early gen3's with lot of dry firing with snapcaps. I was sure the firing pins are MIM now, sorry.

I've heard the same. In some cases, from very respected members of this board. It seems like there should be a definitive answer as to whether the OEM striker is MIM. The fact that someone was at the factory and saw them doing final finishing/machining on the part doesn't mean it didn't start out as MIM. SOMEBODY knows. Smile

Believe what you like. Smile I know I'm just SGOTI (some guy on the internet) but the process I witnessed was not machining of MIM made precursors, and the process was certainly not just "...final finishing/machining on the part..."

Give Glock CS a call, they're good to deal with and will give you the info you want from the people you want it from. Smile

I just sent them a message through their contact form. If they respond, I'll post it here.

Sounds good. I wouldn't be surprised if you hear that some are MIM, and some are not. I just posted what I witnessed. Smile

I'd say that's entirely possible, especially if your site visit was a while ago.

Glock started their MIM blocks and extractors circa 2007 IIRC. I would pay extra for machined parts, but manufacturers don't see it that way. All they care about is the bottom line. Damn shame.

Respected or not, the echo chamber effect applies.

Makes sense firing pins are not MIM, no spur mark that is visible on extractors and locking blocks.

Same subject came up at glocktalk, members called Glock, Glock would not discuss it.
