Shock rods?
« on: September 10, 2018, 08:44:11 PM »
Gentlemen:
Anyone have any NOS shock rods for an M16?  Mine are nowhere near straight, and everything I can lay my hands on are either a)  too short, b) the rod is too thin, c) bent in a pretzel like my originals, or d) the rubber is kaput.
I found one good shock rod (part that goes from the shock absorber to the axle mounting plate)....anyone got one good NOS one they are willing to part with/trade for?
Thanks,
kk

Hi KK,
I should have a NOS one on the shelf. I'll need to head to my storage space to confirm though.
Shoot me a PM and we can work out details.

If the no’s rods don’t work out you can try rebuilding them if you have the tapered pins still intake. I just blasted both parts and used a good urathene caulking or you can get a two part urathene from mc master.
