    Mil-Spec Gas Tube Roll Pin

    Looking for a source for mil-spec gas tube roll pins. That means US Made!
    According to McMaster-Carr they don't make a true mil-spec gas tube roll pin.

    Just in case BA is OOS, I've also had luck with Black River Tactical for similar small items.

    This. These are awesome and I’ve never had one move in the slightest.

    Thats what McMaster Carr recommended too and I'm certain they're fine but they're not true mil-spec

    Below are McMaster-Carrs Mil-spec oil pins

    Those are not as strong as these, McMaster-Carr's MS16562 - Tubular, Slotted, Spring Pin

    Not that it really matters a whole lot.
