    Hey GALYSPORTS, welcome to The Firearms Forum. I did a quick Google search and the only place that I see that might have what you need is this place since they claim to have millions of gun parts: http://www.gun-parts.com/mossberg/

    The first place I always check for gun parts is Numrich Arms, but the only part they listed for a model B is the barrel and they were "out of stock". Every other placed I looked showed no parts for the Model B. Good luck with your search.

    That ones a doosey. Gonna be next to impossible to find parts for it. Having a Firing pin made may be your only choice.

    Luckily it is a cylindrical striker so one can easily be turned on a lathe by an equipped gunsmith. Its a good thing you have the old one still too, that will be necessary for the smith to take measurements from.

    What part of the nation are you in?

    Lou, They were made from 1928-1932, with the earlier models using a two piece bolt.
    You will need to know if your bolt is the two piece or one piece.
    Bob at http://www.gun-parts.com/mossberg/ would be my first place to look, give him a call and ask.

    On either bolt, it is typically the tip that breaks off. Usually from dry-firing. We can machine a new firing pin, but we have had good results on similar designs with drilling the body of the old pin and installing a new tip made from hardened drill stock.
