I have a couple USGI 30/50 pintles that I can sell you. These include a nut and bolt in each but they need to be reparked and they have the wrong type of nut. I can let these go for $145.00 shipped. Email me if you have interest

Amish-Bob,
Do you have a couple of pics? What is the difference from a M2 pintle and a USGI 30/50 pintle? Where could I find the right nut?
Thanks in advance,
Todd

Here's a pic of those 2 pintles

An M2 tripod is a .30 cal tripod. An M3 tripod is a .50 cal tripod. These pintles will work equally well in either tripod. It is my belief that these pintles were designed for either tripod while the short tail .30 pintle was designed for the 1917A1 tripod.

I wouldn't have a clue where to find the correct nut. The only thing wrong with these nuts is that you can't use a cotter pin

Yes, they will fit a 1919 and an M2 .50 cal. That's why 1919's have those spacer pads at the pintle hole on each sideplate. It makes the gun the same width as an M2 gun.

These will fit both .50 and .30 tripods and guns. The military must have been thinking for a change
