Default 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.

Interestingly enough, I got the Marlin 60 buffer from Brownells. And it was

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.

Just trying to offer help and options.

Oh and by the way pics at my local Handy Ace this morn (1/16 - 3/32 respectively). Glad you found yours
