Hey Kurt and Gary...I have the 1400mm Corsair. I sheared off the small perpendicular shaft that causes the shaft to rotate. I am such a cheapskate, I dont want to lay out $50+ for a new set of retracts, so am looking for a way to remake/replace the strut shaft. Any suggestions?

P.S. I hope FMS is monitoring this and sees many of us REALLY want the rotating versions for our Corsairs!
Thanks in advance,
Alan

Yeh what's the latest. Send me pair or 3 actually. I'll put them in the T28 as my 514's have been acting up.

I haven't heard anything back yet? I am hoping they have taken my suggestion on making the mounting flanges suitable for drop-in replacements for the PZ-V2 and 514s into consideration. Hopefully that is what might be taking so long?

Looking at PW-RC for retracts with metal trunions and am confused. Seems like these 2 have the same specs but Phils is a 3mm shaft and HK is 5mm.

I need the 5 mm. When I look around at Phils website I can find the 5mm shaft retract but its much larger retract than the 514's ?????

I hate to say it, but Phillip's listing for the PZ's is a bit confusing? His "Large" IS the 514s, the "Regular" is the 312s. But, one advantage he offers is his comes with the metal trunnions whereas I'm not sure about the HK 514s?

He also has the larger PZ-V2s as well.
