New cross pin every time?
« on: December 04, 2017, 04:22:50 PM »
Do you guys install a new cross pin when you replace a front sight?

I have 75 B SA.

Yes, the pins are cheap.  If you don't have a pin, you can reuse the old one, but it may look a little dinged up.

Cheers,

I forgot to order pins hence the question. I'll order some with my next big order just do not want to pay for shipping only for pins.

@copemech do you use brass roll pin punches, or steel is alright?

Pretty much every time.......on rare occasions the original can be reused, in my experience

Where do you buy roll pins?

I see CZ Custom has one for 75 front sight, I also need some pins for P-10C.

Right, CGW also has front sight pin. What about pins of other sizes, e.g. back strap pin for P-10C.

Do you guys know the size of the front sight pin by any chance so I do not have to remove it?
