Can a magnet damage a gun by magnetizing the firing pin and prevent it from firing?
The answer to the first part of this question is simple: no.
While many gun magnets today can support well over 25 pounds of weight, the magnetic force of a gun magnet simply isn’t powerful enough to penetrate a gun. Thus, mounting your firearm on a gun magnet will not magnetize your firing pin.
But let’s pretend for a moment that you are dealing with a magnetized firing pin. Will this damage your gun and/or affect its ability to fire?
To start, let’s first take a look at hammer fired guns (check out Youtuber Skallagrim’s breakdown video on how a hammer fired gun operates).
Pull force of gun magnets
The pull force of gun magnet is affected by internal magnets and magnetic circuit. The magnet with suitable dimension and grade would give excellent pull force to gun magnet. The pull force of gun magnet will be 100% sorted before shipment. HSMAG team also provides the technical solution to help customer to achieve higher pull force and cost reduction.
Let’s test this theory.
Find two paper clips and magnetize one of them by rubbing it for two minutes with a magnet. Once the paper clip is magnetized, use it to pick up the non-magnetized paper clip.
Hold the two linked paperclips the air and try to break the magnetic connection by blowing on the non-magnetized paper clip or by flicking it lightly.
