View Full Version : couple of questions about shotguns

February 5, 2002, 05:34 AM
I have a winchester model 12......after I fire it should the action slide open freely or do I have to push the little button?

I need a firing pin for a 12 ga SPRINGFIELD AUTOMATIC SHOTGUN this is the only markings on it besides the choke (MOD). Any help would be appreciated.

BA, yes it should. If you are having to manually operate the slide/bolt lock then it probably needs to be replaced.

I can probably supply you with the firing pin. There is basically only one Springfield auto shotgun that I know of. Closely resembles a Browning A-5. There are 4 or 5 model numbers but they all use the same firing pin. However there are 2 styles. Drop me an e-mail or PM. George
