    Default top rib

    Interesting those museum pieces have the top rib prior to folding. Note the verticle ribs that are in the very front of a MP and the round pressed in spot at the rear of the receiver block area are not there. The part of the Sturmgewehr book that shows info. re the receiver mentions
    "recalibration" as one of the manufacturing steps. I always kind of thought those ribs and the round spot were pressed in after the block was installed into the folded flat, not before. Doing that would require a pressing setup beyond the folding. Best case would be a die set of some sort.

    Will a CETME pin also work? Are they the same size?

    might since they the G-3 and cetme derive from the same gun MP-44, I can only say from experience and from other postings the G-3 pin is the same plentiful and cheap

    I complained on this forum about the really poor quality reproduction pins sold on GB and Ebay - the sprung-steel breaks, pops out of its position, bends.
    Sprat recommended the G3 pin, it's a few MM long, but, rock-solid, I've had no issues with thousands of rounds.

    Just to double check, They have two sizes at RTG. I assume the larger size is the one that fits? Not that they re all that expensive at $2.50 each

    how about ordering both and take one for the team and return the one that does not fit for $ 2.50 if you have a MP-44 or PTR 44 you can afford the $ 5.00 & shipping

    Took one for the team. Ordered 2 stock pins from RTG because I need 2. One of my originals was bent making take down for cleaning not fun, the other has a broken spring, and will work its way out when used. These G3 pins won't work though. They're too short. You can see here it doesn't go through far enough for the retainer spring to do its job. Any other suggestions?
