    Default 1.5 mm reciever blanks HELP

    OK, theres probably already some info on this subject, but I'll ask anyway.

    Who has come up with a way to use the exisitng pins on the thicker (coldsteel) blanks so they reach all the way across and secure correctly?

    Are there longer pins out there? Did anybody recess the reciever at all?

    Thanks, Tom

    SEE PICTURE #1 IN WINN'S POST BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION (except I would use 1 plate for BOTH pins instead of 2 seperate reinforcers...its your call)

    I would take a piece of .050" steel sheet and cut it out to fit over the pin holes to the INSIDE of the receiver. Make the holes in the correct spot and spot weld it to the INSIDE of the receiver, this way even if the pins appear recessed they will be supported fully by the plate on the inside of the receiver....That seems like the easiest and cheapest solution (Assuming you HAVE a welder of some kind... you could always pop-rivet the plate in place also, would be fine)....

    Hrm...my receiver was .055" thick and my pins are plenty long. Are all the pins same length?? Im using Bulgy surp... I use the following retainers (See pic) found at lowes/home depot. They are 7/32"....

    Thanks. Good Luck!!!

    Here are two methods:
    1. Spot weld a piece of sheet metal in place
    2. Gunk up a washer with JB Weld (has held for thousands of rounds)

    The other way to handle the same problem is on the outer left side

    Lightbulb correction for pins

    My answer for the pin reach problem is a modifyed right internal rail that reaches down for the trigger pin to stab through.
    The problem that I have is that I can't get a picture to post for some odd reason. If someone would help me out by posting my pic here I would sure appreciate it.

    Talking Modified right rail for 1.5 problem

    Thank You magnus329 for posting those pictures for me.

    I thought that sence we have to install rails anyway why not make it so that it does double duty.
    The rail reaches down so that it encloses the trigger pin area so that when you drill the 5mm hole you are now drilling the added material so that the pin now stabbes through an extra .040 or.064 for support.

    The modified rail does not interfear with anything at all.
