Just got a 1895 CB in 45-70 caliber, with 26 inch barrel. Shot it for the first time this week and seemed to be fine. However I noticed rear firing pin looked crooked. I am a totally newbie with these rifles so pardon me if this questions seems silly. Here is the picture. Thanks!

The rear firing pin (as well as the front) is held in place by a roll pin thru the bolt body.
There is a slot that allows it to move back and forth.
There has to be some amount of tolerance and in some cases it will be enough to
allow the rear pin to "clock" over to one side slightly.
I wouldn't be alarmed by it.

OK
So it should be able to be "clocked" back to be more even looking. I have only field stripped it so far so maybe thats when it happened. thank you for the answer.

OH yes I know how these groups work. LOL. I am sure there is a fair share of teasing going on, which is fine and keeps things fun. Thanks for the warning.

Everyone needs something to worry about. If everything operates as it should then find something else to worry about. Some of my Marlins have misaligned parts but function and shoot accurately.
