I need a firing pin retention cotter pin. I live in the general Phoenix area and would like to know if getting one from ASA would be ok. Is the quality of their small parts ok? Is this pin a special type and/or rating? Can I get a substitute from a general nut and bolt place??

Pretty much any gun smith should have that part, but if you want to get it from ASA go ahead. As for anything else from ASA ask first. BTW: You need to come over to our hometown forum, and get all the local gossip, were having a get together in Casa Grande on 11/1.

Ya, they buy all the parts from other sources...its just the parts that require cutting/fitting that you shouldn't trust. Edited to add: I think The Armory is still a few doors down from them, they are good people there, I always try to give them my business when I have money...

You could always buy an inexpensive field repair kit from Bushmaster. For $29.95 you'll get two cotter pins plus a bunch of spare parts that are really nice to have: [url=http://www.bushmaster.com/shopping/lowers/afield.asp]Bushmaster field repair kit[/url] All three of my ARs are Colts, but I keep a few of the Bushmaster kits onhand. The only thing I can't use in the Bushy kit is the disconnector since Colt uses .170 pin FCG parts.

I’m thinking I might get one of those spare parts kits from Bushmaster. I just started putting together an old ammo can for field tools and a few spare parts and that little kit looks like it might be very useful. Thanks. Best regards, J

Since you are starting to gather parts, instead of the kit I posted above you might want to spend another $7.00 and buy [url=http://www.bushmaster.com/shopping/lowers/arpartskit.asp]this one.[/url] For only $7.00 more you get the same Field repair kit that I posted above, a complete spring kit, and a complete pin and detent kit. It's a hell of a deal for $36.95. I feel like a used car salesman [:D]
