Does anyone know of a source for this type and size of chain for the ammo locker pins? Thanks.

It looks like a bath tub plug chain

I just kept checking different hardware stores until I found one that had it, looks exactly like that.

I was just in a local hardware store and they had it. Links were about 3/4" long. I can get you some if you need it, I think it was $2.79 a foot.

McMaster Carr has just about everything, you might have to buy 100' of it though :(

Thanks for the offer. I think I found some here and will know in a day or two. If not, I'll take you up on it. Thanks!

I tried McMaster-Carr before but the chain was an odd shape - the sides were not parallel but were slightly bulged. I appreciate the suggestion though.
