I recently scored a few pintle adapters. Some of them have a hole in the middle, as if it's part of a manufacturing technique.
Does anybody know if this was done by a certain manufacture, or if these are simply new make pintles?

Not sure if the one with center hole is new or not. I do know the center hole is for turning the shaft that goes in the tripod.
got a couple like that one.

The drawing number on both indicates they are post WWII mfg, but I can't tell you any more than that. The feature you describe reads to me more like a manufacturer distinction, as it is not a functional thing except for, perhaps, ease of turning in the mfg process.

Does anyone have a pintle print?


In particular the taper end.

I want to make an adapter, and I really hate to cut up a good pintle to make it.
Send me an e-mail through the forum here, and I'll reply with the drawing for the short pintle, for the M2 and 1917A1 tripods.
