Default Winchester 1892, broken firing pin

I broke a firing pin tip on my 1892 rifle. The damn thing is 110 years old, so I guess it was just tired. Ordered a replacement, and set about putting it in yesterday. Used to be pretty good at tearing these down and re-assembling, but it's been a while. Consequently, this one gave me fits until I remembered a very good trick - get a spent casing in the chamber to hold the ejector/spring/collar in place while you re-install the finger lever and locking lugs. After that it went together without issue, and is fully functional again.

GPC has 'em, and they are new reproductions so it should last me the rest of my life.

Good job. My dad traded a Luger for this .44-40 1892 in the late 50s and when hunting with it later on once the firing pin broke. He, being very good with tools, made a new one himself. It's still working fine now. In the 80s I won a cowboy shoot match with it, but it was a very small group of people. This gun has many factory verified special order features including take-down, Made in 1904.
