Irish, I have an ancient side by side exposed hammer shotgun. Many years ago, one of the firing pins broke. A mate who has a engine / machine shop ( he contests the Au Jet boat titles now ) then was working in the railways. He made me a firing pin out of a suitabley sized drill bit.
I eventually bought him a beer years later. It`s still in the gun over 20 years...
But yeah, ask around for a tool maker or anyone with access to a lathe and Bob`s ya uncle ( or ya aunty in drag )
