When cleaning in the garage several weeks ago, a somewhat unfamiliar, modest-sized box showed up on the back of a low shelf near some dusty toolboxes.

Rarely, I’ll wager. Probably never. If it did happen, chances are, it was a broken firing pin (caused by dry firing?), which is a repair or operator problem, not maintenance. Maintenance is done to prevent having to do repair. ...Read More >
