View Full Version : Need to find a firing pin
October 18, 2008, 12:16
I have in the shop an O/U marked "Arthemis Special 88". It's obviously an older imported gun built buy Huglu, at least it's the same design out of Italy or Spain, hard to tell as it appears to be a GI bring home or was imported before those markings were required. I've worked on Huglus before but for the life of me can't figure out who I got parts from before or who to call now. Everyone I can think of no longer is in business or doesn't have parts.
Any help would be appreciated.

Duplicating isn't an issue. Time and labor charges are.
I don't wan't to charge a customer $75-$100 in labor when I get a firing pin and install it for less than $40. Especially when I know that it is interchangable with a currently produced and imported firearm.

Never seen a roll pin made into a firing pin.
Drill rod: Machine time .25-.5 hr @ $85/hr. Shop time .25-.75 hr. @ $65/hr. depending on how much fitting and harding required and don forget time dissambling, reassembling and function testing. It adds up quick.
Replacement part: $5-$15 dollars including shipping depending on where I find it. .25-.75 shop time @ $65/hr. for disassembly, fitting, reassembly and function testing.

I think I might have found who I'm looking for. if not I might be able to get something from CZ or a few others.
