Firing pin spacers do work!

I tried to fire Yugo 8mm out of my gun and I could not get more than 2 or 3 rounds to fire together and then I would get a deep primer hit but no ignition. I then installed a New/Old stock firing pin and I could get several rounds to go off together, I then installed the spacer from Brassmagnet and we fired about 1000 rounds with no FTF issues at all.

George W and I were having trouble with the Yugo primers. Without having any spacers with us, we tried out the Swedish firing pins and they are longer than the standard A4 firing pins and work great. They use a cool two piece design with the actual firing pin being a seperate part from the main body.
Source for these two piece Swedish firing pins? Tht is what I love about this web site great guys sharing great ideas!
I got them from Numrich in a complete Swedish 1919 tool roll they were selling a while back. I wish I had more.
