the first were made from .187 drill rod, one has a pin tip machined and the other has
been drilled to take a section of the german pin. The .187 pins will have to be polished
down as the fit to tight in the 3/16"

loose enough and I don't see anything binding. I have tried to fire it without the ejector
bar and without the firoing pin spring. no luck, all I get is a tiny dimple on the primer.
Karbinator and Abwher have been kind enough to post some photos and dimentions and
hopefully this will help me solve the problems. I see that brp uses a thin firing pin, so I
guess I will abandon the idea of using a 3/16" pin. I have ordered some parts and hopefully
will be able to use my friends lathe this weekend to make some test parts.
I got a g3 kit and am looking into seeing if the fcg will work. the push spring type hammer
is better than the ar type. I have another grip stick on the way and have some ideas about
a better way to attach it in the front.
