James, I don't have that info nor do I have one in the shop to measure. If you're intending to make one, Gun Parts Corporation www.gunpartscorp.com lists them for $1.15, and Brownells www.brownells.com list them for $1.84. George

I just put one back togeather and read this. George is right it'd be a ho lot easier to order one. Let me know if you just need the dimension and Ill pull it out measure it for you. If your going to try and make one you'll need more than the length. Let me know

Having put both sweat and blood (and maybe some tears) into making parts that could not be obtained, I don't understand why anyone would want to make a part that can be bought for a couple of bucks. Is it the challenge, or do folks not know that parts are available, or they don't know how hard it can be, or is it some American determination to "do it yourself"? Beats the heck out of me.
