Default German cannon parts

I´ve got these two parts here and I Wonder if anyone knows what gun it´s from. There was a 37mm kwk (tankgun) in the area, could it belong to that one?

Yes it is the firing pin and the firing pin cover, but the cannon model is unknown.

Thanks for the info, I've tried to find pics of the firing pin for the kwk 36 but no luck there.

I got my pics from a PzKpfW IV manual. Perhaps you should try to find the corresponding panzer manual for more info.
