View Full Version : Desperately Looking For An M48 Yugo Firing Pin And Spring

September 13, 2012, 03:00 PM
I recently got a Yugo M48 for real cheap, but apparently the former owner put in a K98 firing pin and spring, and it's too long. I just spent 3 hours on the Internet looking for the parts, but they are either all sold out, or just don't have them. I looked at all the obvious places, like Numrich, TGP, buymilsurp. All sold out. I even went to all the online gun seller auction places, no joy. Does anybody know of any place that has them in stock, or possible have an extra they might sell me from their parts stashes?

Is there a suitable substitution available from another FA?

Or are you 'shooting' for OE

They are pretty readily available.
www.hoosiergunworks.com has them. And may even have the OE

Ouch, but they're expensive. But I also need the spring, and I don't see one listed.

I will ask the Smith , he's in the next office.

What price range are you hoping for for Spring & fp? I'll run the numbers by him to narrow the zones.

All of the Yugo parts have dried up from the usual sources. There were several that popped up on eBay a couple of weeks ago. Most of them had FP, spring and cocking sleeve. You just have to be patient.

What tidewater said. Springs should be on midway and brownells site. The intermediate size Mauser parts have always been in demand.

The standard 98 spring can be cut down, but that is not feasible for the firing pin. (It is not impossible and might be done in an emergency, but I don't recommend it if finding the correct firing pin is even remotely possible.)

You won't find any M48 series FP's on the market - so no need to look further. I second the M1903 Turk FP. It will work nicely in your M48. I've been using one for several years. As for springs, get a Wolff Service Pack and replace all of the springs in the rifle. Doesn't cost much and will head off reliability issues with the old springs.

All's well. My gunsmith found one!

You can find the spring on Buy Milsurp for $8. The firing pin is sold out at this time. Here's the link:


I've bought parts from the site before and always gotten what I needed and in good condition if used.

Believe me, that was one of the first places I looked!
