    Default G43 Firing pin housing question

    Today, at a local gunshow, I saw a firing pin housing for sale, I was allowed to take a picture and, when came home, could not find any info on the maker of it. Is this a repro or a real one?

    Thanks

    I have never heard of repro firing pin hosings so I presume it's original.

    Mine has similar markings, but is a VOPO. I dont think that one is a reproduction though.

    Show photos of the sides. Should be a waffenamt and serial.

    There was a brief reproduction run about 6 years ago out of the Netherlands. They were recalled because of drill jig alignment issues but some may still be floating around (I still have mine).
    The OP's picture shows an original part.

    Sorry, that was the only picture I took. I think I saw a serial number and remnants of WaA

    Question Repo

    I had one for a little while, but traded it back to to parts dealer that it came from. There were no numbers or anything stamped on it. However it did have a number e-ped on it. But it must have been a parts number as every one he had had the same number on it. Anyway it was to wide to work with my flaps without being thinned. So I just got rid of it and found a original that worked.
