F/A Roll Pin

I got an issue, I ordered a forward assist assembly and tried installing it and the roll pin just slid through. I know the roll pin should be .625 long by .093 in diameter. Has anyone heard of a different sizes for the F/A roll pin? Or I might have an over sized hole on my upper? I'll try to go to the hardware store and just buy the next few sizes up. I looked at my Vltor uppers and they are a different size, but a different style all together. I have nothing to compare it to. I'm hoping they just put the wrong roll pin in the kit. It came from AR Depot and they have been shady lately. I don't want to run around looking or some oddball size. Let me know if anyone has felt this pain!

Never mind, figure it out. They put the wrong roll pin in the kit . Bought a new one.

You bought a new one? They should have replaced it for you.

I know, but it took 3 weeks just to get that. My local shop has tons of small upper and lower parts in stock. That what you get on the internet!

Yeah I'm still waiting on a bolt hold back spring and a bcg. It sucks right now.
