Guy E-mailed me asking if I had seen a rotating swivel on a brown stock. Told him no but I sure would like to buy it for study. Had to buy the whole set to get it. Now that I have the whole set, I like it, so am going to keep it.

You have a good start on yours, can take a few years to piece one together.

Still lots of work to be done, it's just a start.

You got the main idea there, green stock set, slab lower, no forward assist, old prong flash suppressor. Looks good.

Yeah, some guy told me that he had a brown set and an edgewater buffer (as well as a green set) and I offered him, didnt get a reply, then emailed him back to find that someone else had offered him more so he sold it to them. Sad how some people are ONLY looking to make more money on something these days...I'm sorry but, if I get an offer, I'm gonna have to go with the first offer instead of saying "oh this guy emailed me 3 days later but he offered more so I sold it to him". Pisses me off..

But yeah, I'm hoping this'll take less than a few years Just need to get that lower first.

Probably the same deal, it was delayed for a few days becuase I lost the E-mail in my inbox for a few days. Things like that happen when you work 15 hour days, plus weekends.

Eh, well at least I know if it was you, then it's not going to some uninformed redneck that's gonna put it on their grandad's SP1 and go hunting with it. I didnt really need the brown furnature anyway. I was mostly hoping for the Edgewater buffer.

That brown furniture looks awesome Ekie...I have never seen a rotating rear swivel......

Thought I better get in on this with some pics.........

Just found the proper "dimpled" selector and front swivel at a New Orleans gunshow today!!!

BTT,

This one is to good to let go.

Really nice work gentlemen!

Thanks for sharing it,

Another glimpse into the museum of Ekie!
great work by everybody. I see new things on this site every day!

I really like the retro brown plastic.
This is a still a work in progress.

STOP IT!!! You are making me crave and I haven't paid off my trip to the CMP yet! DAMMIT!!!
Link Posted: 12/6/2006 1:49:01 PM EST
I'm gonna have mine done (at least shootable) this month! I cant wait. Still need the small details but all the parts that make it go bang are gonna be here within the next 2 weeks or so.
Link Posted: 12/6/2006 4:06:42 PM EST
Mine is almost done. I found a slicksided upper and now all I need is a slab lower, an old 3 prong and a waffle mag.

I have a complete green furn. set, slick-carrier. I was thinking of doing the A1 mod to the lower, but I don't know where to find the front pin that I would need.

DOOD! That is beutiful. I love the stripped look of the bakelight funiture.

Thats freakin COOL Ekie.
Link Posted: 12/7/2006 10:54:02 AM EST
I really hate to post a work in progress but I guess I have to try to keep up with you guys. Here’s my Colt SP1 Model 601 clone with original green Armalite furniture. As I said, it is a work in progress. Some things to be changed will be the front swivel. It is obviously a replacement. The upper will be swapped with an earlier one that has no forge code, I just haven’t had the time lately. I’m working on a duplicate bolt catch as well. The rear takedown pin and the triangle charging handle are original. The duckbill is a reproduction I bought off of Subguns.com. I’m also working on something else for it…























Yes, I plan on making some more pins. It may be after Christmas but we are about to make the best replacement pins ever for the Colt SP1.

Is that the new product you were talking about? Also, is there a divot on the "flat head" side of that pin..? They werent like that just so ya know.
Link Posted: 12/7/2006 11:52:27 AM EST
Looks good!!!! That is an especially nice set of Green furniture.

Is the front pin retained in the same manner as the original 601??
Link Posted: 12/7/2006 11:53:34 AM EST
Okay, I'm committing blasphemy here...

but that brown furniture would look great chopped up and put on a 607 clone.

Maybe if I can find some originals damaged beyond the parts that would be modified for a 607 I could hack off the damaged parts and use the rest....
Link Posted: 12/7/2006 12:01:22 PM EST
I couldn't really get the light just right for pictures of the new pin. It's still in the white and needs to be parkerized. It will be a faithful reproduction of the original Model 601 front pin, only scaled up for the SP1. No, there's no divot on the flat head side, only on the small end.

In addition, the part of the pin that protrudes from the receiver will be rebated to .250 so that it will look more like the original pin protruding from that side. It will have a divot as well but we are planning on making them with and without divots so that SP1 owners can choose the early or late style.

The shaft of the pin will stop at the edge of the receiver. Depending on your SP1 receiver it should sit very close to flush or within .001. I've measured at least 20 different Colt receivers and there is as much as .004 variation in the width where the pins go through so this is by no means going to be a bulls eye every time but the end product should be very aesthetically pleasing even if it is off by .001 or .002.

The head of the pin will be about the same size as the rear takedown pin head, around .373 to .375 so it should look balanced.

The pin will be retained as the original with a spring loaded ball bearing. In case you were wondering, the SP1 has a gap on either side of the front lug on the upper receiver and there is ample room for a ball bearing to engage. There will be more pictures to come and the new pin will be posted on the EE when they are in production.

If someone has some dimensions from a real 601 pin head I'd be interested in knowing the diameter and thickness of the head. The overall length might be of help in determining the length we use for the .250 protrusion.

Thanks guys!

Here ya go.....
Link Posted: 12/7/2006 12:27:04 PM EST
Thanks Villafuego! Now, this question remains. Do you guys want large divots like what is in the selector or do you want the smaller divot to match an original rear pin? We will probably be doing some selectors and rear pins so you guys can have “sets” instead of trying to get a piece at a time.

Large divot in selector, small divot in rear takedown pin.


Large divot in selector, small divot in rear takedown pin.

If you make those take down pins, make some that are .250" all the way accross for NON COLT NEUTERED clones, like one of NDS slabside lowers (hopefully) and my 601 upper.....please

Gonna be done (shootable with a lower, not DONE) tomorrow or Tuesday I'll post more pics then.

Yep, on USPS it says "Notice Left" so it's waiting at the PO for my FFL. He was at the fun show yesterday (woulda gone but had to work ) and his shop is closed Sunday so I guess he's gonna pick it up Monday and I'll pick it up either tomorrow or Tuesday. I'm on pins and needles, trust me!

WOW great projects guys!

45bravo's front pivot pin is just what I need for my SP1!

Can't wait to see the finished product.
