I need a little help please
« on: April 19, 2019, 12:11:38 PM »
We are back in the "drawing room". Can't share what we are doing, but, it is "adapter" related. If you gentlemen will help us out, we need a favor or 2. We have measured the width of the locking tab on the rear site. The one that holds the front of the factory 10 round mag in place. No 2 measured the same. Will you guys measure some of yours and post up here. We need to get a "representative range" that is realistic across the board? Thanks guys.

I can measure all of mine Marcus. When you say 'width', do you mean the height of the slot, the depth of the notch, or it's actual width from side to side?

The width of the tab on the bottom of the rear sight that holds the 10 round internal mag or high cap mag in place. They will likely be in the 10-11 mm width. I'm interested in the "spread" of the width.

Thanks,Marcus

Finally dug some out and tore down for measurements:

Chinese /26\, year 2: 0.437"
Romanian, 1968 'EF' prefix: 0.432"
Chinese /26\, 200k: 0.440"
Russian 1950: 0.447"

That's a surprisingly small spread of 0.017" in my opinion.

I didn't have time to pull a Yougoslavian or Albanian.   Hopefully tomorrow.

Also, short lug and pinned barrel late model Chinese are worth looking at too.  Hope this helps.  thumb1
