Before go out and spend $$ buying pins, get someone with a lathe to turn you a piece of mock up pin out of mild steel or aluminum
install and see if that solve your problem.

I can't believe the good fortune. While surfing the net last night I found comments on a forum from 4 years ago about a gunsmith in Idaho that manufactured screws etc for antique rifles. I called him and he had oversized pins for rolling blocks sitting on the shelf. I ordered two different sizes and will give them a try next week when I return home from a business trip. His name and number are below.

His reasonable price of $5 per pin made me buy both sizes he had. They aren't case hardened but they are 4140 steel and should do the job with my light loads.

Stovepipe, thanks!

Its an oldie but I should have it back well enough to shoot. There are only two aspects that could use more gunsmithing. 1. The breech block has an interference as it rolls under the hammer when you extract or load the bullet, and 2. The back/bottom of the breech block (which has been repaired once with a weld to add more metal) is worn a bit so when the hammer block falls under the breech block it has 0.004 of play.

Tomorrow is the "test flight" but far from its madien voyage. Sometime I wonder just how many rounds have gone through it. This one was used by the Egyptian army. I think they shot it until it just wouldn't shoot anymore.

Very interesting shooter with an interesting history to boot!

Best wishes on the maiden voyage and a new lease on life!
