Need longer pins on AR

Hey Guys,
I have an AR that needs a longer pin for the hole near the mag well. I have picture of both sides and you can see the pin does not go through. I have 4 AR's and have never seen this before. Can anyone tell me where to get longer pin and what in the world is going on.
With Respect,
Alvin

The pics seem grainy on my iPhone.

What is the upper and lower?

Thank you guys for your help! I have seen dia. differences but never length diff.
It is a steel receiver and is made by Diamond. I have looked everywhere but only only find different OD pins
Thanks for your time and help in this matter,
Alvin

If you mean the pin for the hammer you could use a regular one or you'll need a longer anti-walk one.

That lower was built about 65 miles from my home. 803-442-9206 is their number.

I have whittled pins using the proper diameter drill rods and HSS pins from MSC grooving with a lathe or dremmel
