A good source for "E" clips...
I was working on my Marlin 60,
replacing the buffer the other day,
when one of the really small E-clips
popped off the side of the receiver
assembly, and hit the floor running.
It's probably heading to Wyoming for vacation.
Hope it sends a postcard. Or not.
The point is, there's 4 E-clips on this
plate, and 3 of them are very small.
After spending a lot of time at the hardware
and home improvement stores, I decided to try
the auto parts store.
In the Dorman "Help" (red blister packs) section
they have an E-clip assortment for @4.59.
It had the small clips I need to fix the Model
60, and an assortment I'm sure will come in handy
in the future.
YES, your local auto parts store...................
Brownells sells a small assortment(of course!).
on my doorstep in about 3 days.
I just wanted to pick these up. No net, no ordering, no further
delays re-assembling my rifle.
I have been able to find stuff like that at a local store called Mesa Bearing. They sell bearings and seals, stuff like that. I have also found E clips, C clips and other odd ball stuff.
Oh and by the way pics at my local Handy Ace this morn (1/16 - 3/32 respectively). Glad you found yours
