View Full Version : Loose Firing pin?

This is my buddy's first AR build and we've taken the gun out to the range a few times. This was our fifth time with about a total of 300 rounds through it and as he was unloading he noticed something weird. He has a P50 system so he was chambering and un-chambering the last few rounds and noticed that each primer had small marks from the firing pin.

None of the rounds went off accidentally, but is this normal or should we be concerned with it? It is a brand new factory assembled DPMS upper. Thanks

Great, thanks! I wasn't sure if the pin was spring loaded or free float.
