Default What is AR-15 Firing Pin Length?

Calgunners,

Is there such a thing as a standard AR-15 firing pin length?
If so - what is the spec and where does that info 'live'?

Thanks,
jwest

No.
There is a standard protrusion spec though.

Page 134 in the -23 maintainance manual covers the procedure and calls out the specs.
