    I am looking for an LCT folding stock pin. Picture of the one I need is below. Cyma pins are too thin, but I will consider trying others. If you find a place to buy this pin, or have one, please let me know. Thanks

    It may be worth looking around local hardware stores or McMaster Carr for that pin. Chances are they will have it.

    Kic Taiwan? Found them to be slowish but very nice, and they will answer emails.

    Man, been through this before on a DBoys AKS-74UN. Hoping you're able to find an answer. LCT folding-stock pins don't fit.

    I’ve checked everywhere, including hardware stores, but the pin is just too unique. Real AK pins are 4.5 or 5.5mm, so it will have to be an LCT pin. I emailed LCT, I also found a triangle folder on WGC Shop that comes with a pin, but that’s $60. I don’t really want to drill the stock or lathe a pin if I don’t have to.

    You don’t happen to have the non-fitting LCT pin do you?

    Those items are not just around...

    You will need to fabricate one...or use a taper pin with additives.

    Nah G, I had the DBOYS AKS-74UN almost a decade ago, but I ran into a similar issue.

    Worth a shot, lol. LCT confirmed they are not sold separately. I’ll see if I can find one secondhand first, or I’ll just buy a stock unit that comes with a pin. I could make one, but at a certain point time/tooling invested isn’t worth it.

    So yeah, if anyone has one, let me know.

    Put a stainless rod on a drill press and use it like a lathe...with a good file you can turn one out in a rather short period of time.

    If all else fails, that’s likely what I will end up doing. That’s a solid piece of advice, I don’t want to modify the receiver if I can help it. Luckily there’s no hurry, so I’ll wait a bit longer to see if maybe I can hit the boneyard parts jackpot before I work on it.

    Jackpot! By chance I actually found someone that had an extra pin. I may still make some spares of my own (or for others) now that I have one for reference. If you lose yours, you have no choice but to make it or buy either a replacement stock or stock adapter.

    And obviously, I have to show off the completed project:

    That pin is unique...McMastercarr won't have anything like it.
