The Bushing on my stoeger coach gun has come loose. Its what holds the firing pin in, I know I just had it worked on and can easly send it back to have it tighten, I plan to do that, but I would like to find the tool so I will have should it ever happen again. Thanks for your help, I have tried Brownell's didn't have any luck.

I "picture" a slotted bushing that threads down around the firing pin...if so, get a wide blade screwdriver and file/grind you a tool that has the slots right...Numrich Arms comes to mind....Midway also.....

Can you buy a bushing and make a tool out of it using drill rod or pins?

Old Boz,
I'd check and/or replace the firing pins, the originals can be too soft and mushroom which would make them tighten up. I'd also check how the pins, springs, and such are assembled. If they are not assembled exactly right, there can be problems, too. Check your schematic to make sure you've got them together right.


Do the firing pin return springs seem to be stiff enough to return the pins?


Anyway, I replaced my firing pins with the black anodized stainless firing pins from Longhunter. Viola, no more problems! DTrader and Brownell's also have wrenches for removing the firing pin bushings. I created mine out of some steel scrap and three drill bits that fit the holes in the bushing.


Another thought, do you shoot the Holy Black? Might be crud buildup if you do. Clean well and after every shoot.
