First thing I did was paint the roll pins so they would go back in the same way they came out.
Then I got the right size punch and knocked the inside roll pin out.
Then I put a towel over the firing pin so it wouldn't fly around the room. I don't think this is necessary because the Automatic firing pin saftey has to be pushed in to release the firing pin to come all the way out, but it does jump out a little. So putting the towel there can hurt.
Now I noticed that the new firing pin and the old firing pin have different size springs. (old top, new bottom). Ok, new design. I thought about putting the old bigger spring on the new firing pin but didn't. I am impressed on how a Bersa is made so I figured I would give them the benefit of doubt and stick with their new design.
I noticed that the old pin is 57.72 1/2 and the new one is 57.73. I know that isn't much, .01/2, but heck,, it is a firing pin and it does have around 5000 +/- rounds through it. Now line up and slide the new firing pin in and push the firing pin safety down to accept the firing pin and it will go all the way in.
Then I used the biggest punch that fit into the hole and knocked the big pin in, then a smaller punch to knock the smaller pin in.
That was it, it's finished.

That was fantastic hobbles, I thought it might be that easy. Although I though you might have to line up the firing pin safety and the firing pin to get it to come free, not just push in on the safety. I thought you might have to rotate the safety as well as push it in. I made it more difficult than it really was. I'm really impressed with Bersa engineering. Hopefully my complete taredown will be an easy one.
