    Rear receiver pivot pins

    I'm surprised front receiver pivot pins(trigger and hammer pins) are readily available, but rear receiver pivot pins. 36 mm and about 3 mm longer than trigger/hammer pins are not. Anyone have spare 36 mm pivot pins they are willing to sell?

    Apex has sets of 3, for full auto, they don't specify if they are different, you could call them.

    ....do you mean the pin for the stock?

    All (3) pins for the Galil FCG are the same length/size in every kit I've handled.

    No, not stock pins. The rear receiver pin for the selectors. The pins on the APEX web site are the shorter 33 mm pins.

    We're talking about a Galil, right?

    The two selectors just click into each other. There are no additional pins.



    I think i've seen some odd-ball selectors on the nuetered semi auto imports maybe? If THATS what youre talking about, not sure. They shouldn't be too hard to make on a lathe though, its just a pin.

    Does yours have the large hole (like in the picture here) for the selector or the small, AK/AKM style hole?

    Numrich actually lists a rear pivot pin but it's not in stock, it's the only place I see mention of it. I would try to get ahold of a reputable builder, they may have what you need.

    Find a steel rod that is longer and of a larger diameter, Chuck it in a drill press, turn to needed diameter, cut to length. You can do this in a hand drill, but it's a lot harder.
