I just sprayed BreakFree Powder Blast into my firing pin channel without removing the firing pin so the plastic housing got sprayed...I think that may be a problem. Going to take it to the range tomorrow and see if it will still shoot.

These days, cleaners are carefully formulated to not harm plastic parts. Why would you have a problem? What am I missing?

Ok. I talked to the range guy today and he said that the plastic they refer to is not solvent resistant....he says the firing pin housing is very likely solvent resistant. Gun shot real well. I am going to learn how to remove the firing pin from the gun and not use the Powder Blast directly on the housing, solvent resistant or not.





Thanks All!

I would suggest taking it apart next time. Very simple process and by having it apart you will insure a thorough cleaning of the channel.

Darbo, THANKS!!!!! FOR THE VIDEOS!!!!!! So easy. Removed the pin, cleaned out the chamber without using any chemicals. It looks pretty clean anyway. I think my firing pin issue was the ammo not the gun. Thank you for those videos. Excellent
