What Is A Firing Pin Of A Gun?

 

How to Shoot Fast & Accurately  

The Gun Digest Book Of Concealed Carry

 

The firing pin of a pistol is generally a lightweight, slender metal rod with a shaped end that transfers energy from the hammer of the gun to the primer. A striker serves the same function as a pin but is usually heavier and comes in direct contact with the spring that provides the striking force (no hammer mechanism). Striker mechanisms are generally simpler since they incorporate the function of both the hammer and pin into one.
