    M1917 Lower Band Pin

    I am looking for a Lower Band Pin, if that is what it is called. It is the pin that goes through the stock in front of the rear band. I have checked all the standard place and they either don't carry it or is sold out.

    Any help in finding one would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Did you try a WTB here on this site? Someone here may well have one and that's where they'll see...

    I stripped a 1917 stock of spray paint once and cut this pin flush during the process. It was getting in the way of my scraper and honestly I didn't even consider its use.

    Anyway, it's there for a reason, haha. I replaced mine with a long finish nail or a piece of stout steel wire, I can't recall. I can tell you I didn't spend any money on it, that's for sure.
    No one will know the difference except me and you and I ain't tellin'.

    I might do that, anyone know the dimensions of the original part?

    I'd measure mine for you but that's not gonna help much, haha. So I'll bump this up to the top instead for a few more views.
