Piston Rings Interchangeable?

Would anyone know whether you could possible interchange a piston ring from one engine that was very similar to another. For example a piston ring from an OS Gt33 to a Mintor 33.
Just trying to find replacement parts.

Thanks

Probably not but there is a guy who makes replacements. I don't remember his name but the guys on RCG probably know his name and address.
