Works for you because it is in Your shopping cart?
Place a link to the part on the parts page.

You could easily make something that would work for a few pennies. Cotter pin comes to mind. Heck, even a piece of coat hanger with the ends bent to keep it in place. Or find a similar diameter metal rod, then cut and file a groove on each end and use a couple of c-clips. You might get lucky and find a suitable sized pivot pin at your local ACE hardware store or in the specialty bins at the BORG. I can think of a zillion ways to do it – just depends on what you happen to have laying around and how much you want to spend.

Cheers,
Brad

If you have a good hardware store nearby with a good selection (better than HD and Lowes anyway), they may have a comparable pin you can use or modify or you could simply try grinding the threads off a screw until it fits.

Edit: Might be slightly cheaper at mmtoolparts.com (never used them but they claim to be an authorized dealer).

I would cut a nail to size, slip on a small washer, wrap string around the end
and apply a drop or two of CA glue.

while the CA glue is drying ~ I would go to the Big Box Store and buy ANOTHER one !!!

Hmm, I wonder if I put the last one of each in the shopping cart so it wasn’t available for you? It came to $ 12.56 with shipping to TX. I’ve cleared my cart now so try it again

I think there are not too many of us left that were raised either on, near,
or in the atmosphere of farmland or with parents, family members or friends
that came up through the Great Depression and Hard Times.
where you took care of everything yourself. more often as not, malfunctioning
or broken tools and machinery was fixed with an old bolt, a bent nail and baling wire.
(the Millennials will have to google baling wire to see what it is).
their motto was: use it up, fix it up, make it do – or do without.
I miss those people.

good job on fixing your nail gun [the Old School way].

I moved last year and the house sold fast which is great but it put the push on us to get moved out so I got rid of a lot a great junk that I sure could use now, but no I have to go buy a nut or washer that a year ago I had a ton of. LOL
Sad but true.
