View Full Version : Rat Tails.... Metric vs Inch

April 08, 2002, 16:18
Is there any difference between inch and metric rat tails? The rat tail on my L1A1 is pretty badly bent (i know, i was not paying attention) and i was wondering if i could just pull the rat tail off a spare metric carrier i have lieing around? How do i get them off?

Not sure if there the same as far as Inch and Metric rat tails go,but I know for sure that the rat tails are riveted in,so you will have to drill out the rivet,but I dont know where you will find a replacement rivet for it at.HTH

Armscorp and Gunthings should both have the rat tail and rivet.

Tapco has used inch bolt carriers with the rat tails on them already #FAL24234 $13 for just the carrier or $20 for the carrier and bolt #FAL24222
