Angry I really need a Firestorm Crank part!

Ok, so heres what all went down. I just recently bought a firestorm crank and had to shave down the little tab that pushes the trigger back. The only problem is I accidentaly shaved it down too far so now its renderd useless. I've tried emailing/calling the company but I think they must have gone out of business since everything including the website dead ends. So if you have that piece (the longer of the two that come in the kit), I would bow down and whorship you. Please I need you guys' help. Feel free to e-mail/PM/AIM me if you have it. Thanks for helping out!

EDIT: Found out that it's called the "Trigger bar" and its a small flat plastic bar.

those cranks are plastic. not metal.

i have several of those cranks. i'll look and see if i have any tabs.

measure your tab that's too short and tell me the length. so i'll know if mine are long enough for you.

The one in the picture is a BMI Activator, not a Firestorm, and it is aluminum.

Dang, wish I would have know that last saturday. The only thing is are you sure that would fit a 98 custom style trigger and frame? That and is the trigger bar on that adjustable? I guess I could buy one, but I'd rather not spend another 20 bucks if I can find that part I'm looking for that costs a buck. Anyways, sending you a pm c6quad. Thanks for your help!

Sorry for the typo, BMI.
But, the one I have on my 10-22 is aluminum. Maybe it's an older model.

no worries.

that's interesting to know. i have 3 or 4 of these and all of mine are plastic. i have had them for a long time. the first one i bought was in '92, and the rest were bought later on, but all have been made of plastic. the one in the pic you posted looks plastic and identical to mine.

is yours cast aluminum? can you post a pic of yours?

Combination cast (body) and stamped (handle). Won't be able to get you picks, it's in a gun safe at my parents house.

Ok let’s get back to business. LOL If you PM me your address I will send you one. I have a few in stock and they come with one installed and one not. When you get it just mail me a $1 bill to cover postage and the part. Paul

PS Try the part before you send the money because mine are made by Equalizer and I have no idea if it is the same. But what do you have to lose.
