M1 Garand Rear Sight Short Pinion - Made from Modified Long Pinions - for Flush Nut and Type I Lock Bar
M1 Garand Rear Sight "REPRODUCTION" Short Pinion. We make these from ORIGINAL Springfield WWII Type II/III Long Pinions which are then shortened and rethreaded to the proper 6-40 pitch for flush nuts and Type I lockbars. We make these as a cheaper alternative to the original short pinions which are very costly and these creations are cheaper with more of the true aged look that can not be replicated with standard reproduction parts. Pinions are proper "short" length and threaded to the proper 6-40 thread pitch as originals (long pinions are 8-36 thread pitch). All parts will have the original finish on them with only the rethreaded area darkened to match better. Perfect add to that early Rifle at a reasonable price versus an original pinion that would run you over $200. Several available so select quantity needed when adding to cart.
Pinion can be used with Type I lock bars also! (Type II lock bars are 8-36 thread so will NOT fit these pinions).

**Note we stamp elevation cap side with a small "R" to indicate Repro so purest won't mistake these for original.
