Numrich has the entire striker assembly of which the cocking piece is one part. I bought the complete 591 striker assembly for $38.00. A lot more expensive than the cocking piece which sells for $6.60. Only no one has the cocking piece in stock. Since my 591 is my daily varmint rifle, I am glad to get in back into service when the parts arrive from Numrich.

As I have posted here before, I was having a continuing problem with misfires with the white box Aguila ammo. So I decided to let my gunsmith take apart my bolt, figuring I have never done this job and there might be dirt or old gunk in it. Surprise, surprise, surprise! (As Gomer Pyle used to say) I had two major problems within the bolt.
First, the firing pin was broken in two. The break occurred where the small tail piece of the firing pin met the larger part of the pin. That is where it slips into the channel of the bolt head.
Second, the cocking piece of the striker assembly had a 75% break around the outside of the piece. This was a hairline crack that I am sure went through the entire metal.
Firing pins were ordered from Numrich. A cocking piece can not be found as a stand alone piece. I had to buy the entire striker assembly to get the cocking piece.
Reassembling the bolt is no easy job. I have been going to my gunsmith for over 35 years. He said that you need three hands for this task. The bolt has been cleaned and put back together. I took 12 of my misfires and randomly loaded them in three magazines. I did not pay attention to where the original misfire strike was on the ammo when I put them in the mags. All 12 rounds fired on the first attempt. Extraction was strong and positive.
I believe my problem has been solved.

I sold two extra 591 magazines to fellows who came into my local gun shop over a period of a few months a couple of years ago. Both had inherited their father's rifle and both were without magazines. I sold each guy one of my spare magazines for $75 a piece. I felt this was a fair price and I got two more 591s back into use. I just felt it was the right thing to do, call it good 5mm karma. I did not lose any money on the transaction. If fellows want to ask $175 for a mag, that is his right in a free market economy. If it just sits there because persons will not pay that amount, same free market at work. I will add that I have a couple extra 591 magazines at present, so I am not without spares. I was hopeful that 5mmEagle was going to get his metal mag into production. I believe in having extra magazines for each magazine fed rifle I own.

We are still working on producing magazines and have not given up. The biggest problem is to be able to assure the 5MM shooters that we can produce enough high quality magazines before we release them for sale and that we can continue producing them for the foreseeable future.
I made some mistakes in announcing too early what we were working on and in trying to include everyone in our adventure have disappointed a lot of people. I apologize for that. I have chosen to be silent recently because of the lessons learned about marketing.
There are different challenges in producing 10 magazines and making 5,000 to 10,000. The samples that I sent out were very slow in being returned and there were some problems with those that I did get back.
The 5MM Forum will be the first group that learns when we release the new magazines and we may have a couple of versions for you to choose from.
Eagle View has invested a large amount of resources, time, money and material since we became involved in this cartridge. We have had some major achievements and a few that were total disasters, but we have supported this cartridge and it shooters since 1993 and will continue to do so.

Springs from ernie the gunsmith help some.591 uses the same spring. Or contact Ernie for info.
If you remove the trigger housing from the action of your rifle make sure you loosen the set screw at the front of the housing before driving out the pin. Also support the housing and action. If you don't do these two things you risk breaking off the stud on the bottom of the action. How light a pull are you trying for? With some careful stoning and a spring change you will probably still be around 3 or 4 pounds pull. Still safe and good enough for hunting.

Saw this 592 walking around at a gun show with a walnut stock, and bought it quickly for a good price. After I got it home and was checking it out I noticed it wasn't drilled & tapped for an ejector cover. That started my research on the forum.
I contacted Remington about having the recall performed at this time, and they pretty much said "find a gunsmith, the parts are available." HA! I guess I'm on my own with this one.
I'd like to start shooting this rifle, but I read the post warning that you will lose an eye if you have a case rupture. Anyone here own the early model / non ejector cover 591 or 592? Do you shoot them the way they came from the factory?
I also posted this on RFC in the new 5mm section, but didn't get much response.

Anyhow, I put in an order for another lot of 30 grain HP. The prairiedogs at my local shoot died off from flooding or the plague last spring. Dunno which but a thriving town i have been shooting over for 6 years now has gone silent. As luck would have it, a co-worker of mine has a sizable town on her ranch and asked me to come out to shoot. I guess the 5mm will be back in the saddle again very soon!~AMMOe
