Hey gents,

Now that I finally scored a tripod, I need a pintle for my 1917A1 watercooled. I'd really prefer an early short one, but please let me know what you have. Thank you!

You can get a pintle for the later style tripod and saw off the extra length. Will look and act just like the original short ones

Yeah, and I'm willing to go that route... but I can't even find one of those! The new made ones don't have the step at the base needed, so those are out... 🙁

Most of the long ones do not have the step in them that I have had in the past I had to machine them in so make sure if you find a long one it has the step some do

there were a bunch on ebay at one point. I think new repos but the one I got was quality
Did it have the proper step at the base?

Yeah.... doesn't appear to have the correct step in it for the 1917A1.
