    Correct roll pin (Mil-spec) for the Leatherwood ART II 3x9 scope rear mount base

    I have found a Leatherwood ART II 3x9 rifle scope for my Springfield M1Aicon.
    However, I ran into a problem:
    The little roll pin to secure the rear rail mount base is missing. I have been told it holds the measure 3/32"x9/16".

    When I say the rear rail mount base for the rifle scope, it is the part that substitute the clip guide on the M1A

    I found the roll pin for the M1A clip guide at Brownells. However it holdes the measure 3/32" x 5/8", and I suspect it is a bit too long.

    Can anybody help me with the correct roll pin for the rear rail mount base for the rifle scope?

    Thank you in advance,

    According to TM 9-1005-223-34 the NSN for the 3/32 x 9/16 pin you want is 5315-00-051-8636. That is the same as MS16562-120. Manroy Engineering Ltd says their A20504 is equivalent.

    A bit too long can be fixed with a file or a fine grinding wheel. The difference is 62.5 thou(as in .0625"). A lot will depend on what tools you own.
    Mind you, 3/32" x 9/16" is a 'standard' size for roll pins. There a fastener company near you?
