I've looked in Lowes, Home Depot, Ace, McCoys, TSC...

I just CANNOT find 1/4" 28 thread screws in the length I need. Basically I need it for the PG I'm making, but I want to use a much longer one than the standard PG screw.

Instead of the standard 1 or 2 inch length I want one thats more like 4 or 5 inches.

Is there a website that sells such things?

I'll look when I get home to see if I have anything like that in my bolt bin. If I find one, I'll IM you tomorrow night.

Look at the toggle bolts. They usually have longer screws.

What about getting a die and cutting your own?

Don't know what a PG is, however, Lowes, Ace and the Homeless Depot all sell bolt/screw stock in different length threads.
It's a threaded rod.

I used to use the local "nut, bolt and bearing" shops when I was stationed at Pt. Mugu when I needed specialized hardware for my motorcycles.

These are the ones I remember.

Pistol Grip.

So what do I do with the stock? Weld it onto the length?

You would get the correct threaded rod, cut it to length, then thread one end in the lower and slip the pistol grip over the threaded rod, set the rear takedown pin retaining pin and spring in place and then use a nut to secure the pistol grip in place by running it down the threaded rod.
You could use a nylock nut to help keep it in place.

It would be just like an engine block stud.


As far as cutting it to length you just get two nuts and thread them down the rod to just below the length you want, tighten them up against each other and use a hack saw to cut the rod.

Then unscrew the nuts from the rod over the end you just cut, these will act as dies and save/smooth out the cut threads.
