Mithra needles and tubes

Posted by chris on 12/17/09


I bought some 11 mag curved bugpins from Mithra and thought they would fit in my 9 mag tubes but no joy. is this problem just with Mithra bugpins or am i missing something here. My 17 bugpin mags fit in my 15 mag tubes..thought it was kinda strange and wanted to bounce this off other people here on the forum.

That's odd. I have a box of 9 bugpin mithra's that fit in my 7 mags nicely. And a box of 13 bugpins that fit in my 11s with room to spare, could probably fit a 15 in there.

With 7-11 bugpin mags it depends on the tube. My 9 mags will only fit into certain 7 mags tubes and the same with 11's fitting into 9's. 13-17 are all fine with fitting into a smaller tube.

What size bugpins are you using, are they 8's or 10's? I agree with the statement made about the tips. Some tips are obviously made larger than others, so that can be a variable. I some of my 7 tips, I decided to slightly grind then smooth the sides so they would fit the 9's... and they were 8's. Another variable is how the needles were soldered together, was it tight (wight) or did it have a bit more solder? I hope this helps.

the 11curved bugpins i bought were 8s. they are like 1 needle too wide to fit into the 9 mag tips.

Chris,
If you can't get em in and don't want to fuss with the return etc. you may be able to make them fit. If you are ever so careful (with gloves of course) you can separate and pull one of the outer edge needles outward and peel it right off the bar and grouping. It should pull right off and away from the solder. The others should stay in tact. Whala, you have a 10M now. Should fit. Works in a pinch til you can figure out a regular routine. - Mark
