Well, it took around 15 years and somewhere in the 8K rounds ( USP Compact AB date code) , but my firing pin finally had it.


I worked the numbers and sending it to HK is around $100 (stupid overnight), so I'm thinking I'm just going to tackle it myself with HKparts.net. Does anyone know if the titanium firing pin works with the new style firing pin block, old style, or both?

The way I'm looking at it, this should be all I need, right?

• HK German Roll Pin All HK Pistols - $2.95
• Firing Pin HK45C & USPC 45 - Titanium - $49.95
• Firing Pin Block- New Style- HK Pistols - $27.95
• Firing Pin Block Spring - New Style - Light - $7.74

Thanks,
Carlos

Call hkcs and order everything from them. Much cheaper...

I paid all parts $40 with shipping...
Hmm- I hadn't considered that. Thanks!

Did you consider the titamium firing pin? I can't find any posts with people that actually switched to it. Plenty of posts on the new block, but nothing on the titanium pin.

HKCS is definitely the cheapest for the part. I recommend sticking with factory parts.

Don't waste your time with a titanium firing pin. An HK is not a 1911, and it has zero benefit. Pick up factory parts and save yourself some money.

In am new to Hk pistols and only own a VP9. Is that normal wear and maintenance for the firing pin? I thought that pistol was a 20.000 round one. I am eventually going to go with Hk45 but just curious

I believe that the firing pins went through two major changes- one in the mid 90s, and one in 2005 (or at least that's when the new firing pin block was introduced). I'd say any day code after AF would not have the issue, BUT I will say this- it doesn't affect my faith in this gun AT ALL.

I've run it in pistol courses, shooting competitions, dry fired with and without snap caps A LOT, and ran it without cleaning for long stretches of time. I honestly wouldn't blink twice to use it hard to protect my life. As far as I'm concerned, everything breaks at some point. I'm no fanboy, but I've had this gun, Sigs, 1911s, and Glocks fail. I plan on fixing it and running it for another 15 years. :)
