    FN49 Rear Firing Pin

    I ordered a two piece fp to replace the single in my Lux. However the one sent doesn't have the slot cut for the fp safety catch to engage. Haven't found a source that has these correct slotted rear sections. Any one know if there are still available? Also can I assume that non slotted rear pin could be used although the safety feature would be omitted will it still work? Thinking about trying to cut slot with dremel tool diamond cut wheel. Any suggestions appreciated

    Well I answered my own question so thought I would share if anyone is interested: You can install the non safety slotted rear pin, but since the safety catch has no way to fall into the non slotted rear section it will stick up and prevent the bolt from fitting into the carrier. To fix this I did a careful layout using the old firing pin to get the location on the new rear section. Using a Dremel tool and diamond cut wheel (several) I cut the slot into the new rear pin. Cleaned up any sharp edges and polished it all up with 600 & 800 paper. Works just fine.

    Well actually found a source that has the correct rear section with FP safety slot. High priced but its the correct type for Lux FN hard to get in touch with him sometime but just call the number
