So I decided to upgrade my firing pin, bought it from ehobbyasia http://shop.ehobbyas...firing-pin.html Anyways so I decided to put in the new guarder firing pin into my gun today. When it came to installing the firing pin back into the impact block I couldn't get it in, so i tried to use back the original parts to put back the firing pin it still won't fit into the impact block.

In this video he was able to drop back the impact block without any problems.   

I have some pictures to show how the little piece is blocking the way.

In the first picture I circle where the little pin is blocking the way.

To avoid saying pin too much I'm going to refer to the firing pin as the striker. Anyways the striker opening has a D shape as well as the pin itself. You have to mate the two together to fully insert the pin into the striker. After that it'll drop right back into the impact block without issue.

The RA recoil buffer kit didn't cause any damage with my gun. I've used the RA kit, modified A2, and AG kit and haven't had any issues other than gas efficiency reductions.

In the end though Im just running the OEM buffer as I want the best gas efficiency. Living in the Pacific NW where average games are anywhere from 25 to 60 degrees doesn't work out well for gas guns with heavy buffers.

For the guarder firing pin, it was extreme tough to sand down with a metal filer, big and small one, did you use something else to file it down lol

Negative I used a file, though you could also use a dremel and a sanding or grinding wheel which would be a lot quicker and easier.

Even though I have a dremel I sometimes like to use hand tools, don't know why.
