KEL-TEC 22 Firing Pin Spring Fix

If you are in need of a new Firing Pin Spring for a Kel-Tec 22, and don't want to spend the $2.91 on Numrich (www.gunpartscorp.com). All you need is a small Bic Lighter.

Not any Bic lighter would work. Because the normal size lighter will have a slighter bigger spring then this slim smaller lighter. Remove the flint wheel from the lighter head, and be careful removing the spring from the lighter because it will fly out of it.

After you have the spring, take a pair of dykes, or needle noses and cut the spring long enough to fit into the Firing Pin Spring slot.


After a few trial and errors you will get your firing pin gliding back and forth within the Bolt assembly.

*Caution* Remember, when you are fabricating gun parts, you may not always make the part to factory specifications. And there is a chance the weapon may or may not fire. There is a chance the weapon could miss fire or hang fire. Use protection when testing the part. Z-87 rated Eyewear, hearing protection. And assume a modified one handed firing position with pistols. With your arm extended bladed with your body, and head facing away from the weapon keeping the barrel of the weapon pointed at the target. *Caution*
