    elliason roll pin

    I have a 70 Series Gold Cup with the Elliason rear sight. I'm in need of the roll pin for this sight. Anyone know the size?

    I suspect the pin is the same diameter as the Elliason Sight Pin for the Colt Woodsman.
    16th" or 0.0625"

    I'm reasonable sure that the G C rear sight pin and the ejector pin are the same diameter. They may in fact be the same but the ejector pin might be a tad longer.

    Eliason roll pins are slightly larger than the solid pin so that the spring tension of the hollow/split pin will hold it in place. The eliason roll pin goes .0640 when not under tension and on occasion it may be necessary to slightly bevel the end to get it started. It is also of value to drive it with a true roll pin punch as a flat end punch can easily deform it and not allow it to enter the hole fully.
    The reason I carry a .45 is, Colt Don't make a .46
