    What stops the striker at the fully forward position:

    1. The breech face,
    2. The channel liner edge,
    3. firing pin block or
    4. some other part?

    Thanks.

    It's the breech ***, not the breech face.

    "striker"

    You can call it a firing pin. Glock does. ;)

    "Firing pin", however, is just pablum for the ignorant proletariat. Those of us who never groveled around with the unwashed masses understand that Glocks use "strikers", not "firing pins". ;)

    If the thingy in a Glock that strikes the primer is a "firing pin" and the thingy in a 1911 that strikes the primer is a "firing pin", the thingy in a Glock that is called a "firing pin spring" must have the same function as the thingy in a 1911 that is called a "firing pin spring", right? They don't? In fact, they kinda have opposite functions? And the 1911 firing pin is driven at the primer by a "hammer", so where is the "hammer" in a Glock?

    Too bad Glock chose not to call a striker a "striker". If anything in a Glock can properly be called a "firing pin", it's that pointy thing on the end of the STRIKER shaft.
