    I just spoke to winchester re:firing pin replacement on a model 100 308 cal. Semi-auto rifle. They will give me a firing pin, but i'm on my own for the labor. Is this like brain surgery, or can i try to do it myself?



    Thanks

    Be sure the pin has not been changed to the new style before tearing into the action. The old style pin can be rotated in the bolt while the new style has a milled flat that prevents rotation. The back of the pin can be examined through the magazine well without disassembly.
