Belt Mountain Ruger Base Pins are hardened, centerless ground to .2495" diameter and handsomely finished. Locking pins have an Allen set screw in the head to hold the pin in place against recoil. #5 Keith-Style base pins are patterned after the pin that Elmer Keith designed for his famous #5 Single Action 44 Special in 1927. The pin head is made of concentric layers of increasingly larger and smaller discs that add to the beauty of the single action sixgun along with great functionality. Installation instructions are included, and on most guns these pins drop right in so no alteration of the gun is necessary.

The head flange is slightly larger than standard and has a relief cut for clearance
of the barrel. This flange prevents the rotation of the pin in the frame, a cause
of frame wear in Colt sixguns.
The basepin latch notch is cut only where it needs to be, resulting in much more metal
to metal contact with the latch. These pins stay put!
Head of pin designed after original design by Elmer Keith for ease of disassembly even in the field.
