Realizing they're not in the "Gun Parts Business"....

And I don't need 50 of each size...

Does anyone repackage these in small "kits" specifically for AR-building purposes?

J&T distributing lower parts kits used to include them, the sole reason I bought them exclusively. The trigger used to be great too.  These days? Who knows.

talks about an ebayer that sells them cheap.

but at 10 bucks for a 100, I am not sure I would bother.

worst case put it in the pay it forward or hometown help thing you could give a few out to locals that lost or can't find any.

I just ordered 100 for the gas tube from McMaster-Carr and it was $10 with shipping. Why both? At my current rate, they will all get used soon.

Ace Hardware.

Seriously. I just stocked up local.

0.23-0.38 depending on sizes.

Trigger guard, gas tube, and bolt catch pins.

The problem is that Ace Hardware isn't "everywhere."  The nearest one to me is part way across town, and it doesn't have everything.  I've bought stuff from McMaster-Carr in 100-lots simply because that was the only place I could find them.

Any hardware store that's decent will have these. Hell, my local auto parts store has a huge selection of roll pins, spring pins, etc.

BRDEngineering is where I get my coiled pins.

Our ACE Hardware store does not sell coil pins. They do sell roll pins but nearly all of them are too large for AR-building with the possible exception of 3/32 x 1/2.

Look at the button at the upper right corner of your screen, under your username and the mail icon.  It says "Shop AR15.com".
