Having a bit of a hard time finding any spares for the Marushin M16A1 so have decided to try something different.

Luckily, I already have most of the major parts and just need the small fiddly things like springs, screws, c-clips etc.

I think an M6 dog point socket grub screw will be a good alternative for part 75, that little bit that sits in front of the buffer tube, as shown in the very last picture of smootik's thread -

Springs and roll pins will be sourced via ebay. Have found several with the right diameters but not the exact length, but can cut down to size easy enough.

Roll pins, same again.

Det pin and selector switch is the only major part I need. Anyone know if an airsoft part is identical for use?

Can someone be kind enough and take some measurements of their M16A1 or XM1775 det pin for me? Failing that I might try and source a bit of 4mm or 5mm OD steel tubing, tap one end and screw it into the breach in the same fashion as the Marushin det pin. With it being a tubelar det pin, might get a bit more bang and flash as well.

Unless someone would be interested in making and selling me one?
