Our AK-74 Firing Pin is precision machined using our CNC Swiss turning centers. The AK-74 uses a 5.45 x 39 cartridge which is smaller than the AK-47. This allowed a person to carry more rounds with the same weight.
Note: This Firing Pin will also fit a Yugo PAP M85NP chambered in 5.56 x 45. You just have to grind the back of the pin to make it shorter.
The firing pins are made from domestic 17-4 Stainless Steel then heat treated to an H900 condition. We machine the AK-74 firing pins from SS to help eliminate internal corrosion issues and improve reliability. The heat treated condition helps maximize the life of the firing pin by increases in Strength and Toughness.
