    Hi All,

    A terrible day today. The little cam follower thingy on the end of my AI .222 firing pin assembly snapped off. What to do? I've sent an email to Beretta Australia but I think the chances of getting the pin assembly as a spare are pretty slim.
    Might have to look for a shot out or otherwise non-functional AI that I can cannibalise. Any advice on solving this would be greatly appreciated. Would hate to banish the rifle to a dark, rear corner of the gun safe.

    Cheers

    Hey Antsa, I bought the complete assembly from Beretta a couple of years ago, surely they’d be able to get another. Fingers crossed for you.

    Pretty sure you're talking about the firing pin cocking sear.........but a picture would help.

    Never heard of one breaking.....

    Hi Mate,
    Good hearing from you. Hoping that they can source one. Otherwise it's probably the bin. Have you seen the AI on the SSAA site? Quite exxy but said to only fired 11 rounds. Serial number is very close to mine.

    Cheers

    AI firing pin assy should still be available from Sako. Keep bugging Beretta Australia about it. You will need the whole firing pin, since the shrouded version is impossible to disassemble.

    Antsa, could you please post up some photos.
    Then we'll know exactly what it is that's broken. I think you'll find one, it's surprising what comes out of the woodwork when you start looking.

    Cheers

    Thanks for all the replies. After a bit of back and forth with Beretta Aus it turned out that they had a Firing Pin Complete, part number S5940150 in stock. It is now on it's way to my LGS. Looking at the brilliant exploded view supplied by ricksengines above it is part group number 1. The broken part is part number 6 Cocking Piece.

    Price is $265 AUS, better than the $2200 for a complete AI I found (said to have only been fired 11 times!).

    Will update here when I have it in my hot little hand.

    Cheers all.

    Edit: Great info from P04R above about not being able to disassemble the AI. I did spend some time yesterday trying to :)

    It arrived today. A complete AI firing pin assembly including the shroud. And "only" $245 Aussie bucks. Just imagine that Beretta had one in stock!

    Cheers
