Israeli HB bipod limiting tab roll pin

Is the Israeli HB bipod limiting tab roll pin a common roll pin size and, thus, available locally. If necessary, I am aware Numrich has this part listed as “bipod connector plunger pin” (part no. 338190). Thanks

1/8" by 5/16" or the more common x 3/8 and shorten. Original was solid pin. I prefer coil pin.

I tapped and replaced my pin with an allen screw. Hey, I did it over 20 years ago, don't hate me.

I use a 1/8" hitch pin clip I sanded down on mine. It's a little "agricultural" looking but I can get the bipod off without tools to stow it in a case or the safe without tools.

I use a small cotter key in mine so I can take it off easily.
