Dear Half-Mast,
I’ve tried ordering the M153 CROWS II quick-release pin (Item 1 in Fig 15 of TM 9-1090-219-23&P), but the NSN is terminal.  Can you help?

Dear Sergeant,
You bet! For the M2 machine gun assembly, order lock pin, NSN 5315-25-150-6481. For the MK 19, order lock pin, NSN 5315-25-150-6482.
