    I was about to order some from McMasters. Package of 100 I see.
    ( Busta , I saw your measurements of 6x8mm. Stick with that size? Saw the www.mcmaster.com/9262k103 too. )
    I don’t need 100.
    I’ll be glad to share n/chg.

    That's the correct size for behind the threads on the firing pin bushing. Not to be confused with the optional 4.5mm I.D. x 6.5mm O.D. size that goes in the primer pocket.

    Just slide it over the threads.

    I have been thinking of this also. If you order them I would be interested for both my optima V2's an pay shipping.

    I'd be in for three of the shims and willing to pay for the stamp plus a couple bucks toward your expense of getting them.

    I would like to have some extra for our 2 Optimas as every time I clean the bushing the oring "screws" off and is getting torn up.

    When you order you might call them and ask about shipping in an envelope. They normally come in a box and you pay for a lot of excess weight.

    There seems to be a bit of confusion on what I'm offering here by some members.
    Wild Willy , Toytruck and Vaguru the exception. Will send you guys as stated above.

    As the subject lines says:
    "CVA o'ring for fp bushing".
    This means a buna-N O ring. And it is for the firing pin bushing as Busta kindly posted a picture. Not the PRIMER pocket.

    Knowing how these OP's can take a life of their own, somehow the idea of metal shims came up as being offered.
    Starting from the beginning and reading,
    I don't have clue where that idea came from in my offering /posts.
    Just a clarification.NP

    How do these o rings hold up to hoppes or other solvents?

    They're Buna-N orings, solvents won't hurt them at all. Pretty much nothing that you're likely to come across will affect them except fire.

    The above from McMaster Carr.
    I was also looking at the Viton o-rings. Higher temp rating but also a harder ply. 75A

    I wasn’t about to pay the ridiculous CVA price and shipping.
    Found them on Amazon for .10 for 100. Prime too!.
    M-muzzy is correct. About anything except fire.
