Default JP Landing Gear

I have a set of new JP landing gear but the legs are too long. I think I can curt them shorter. But, before I do that, does anyone know where to buy the legs the at the length I need?
Could I put Electron legs on the JP actuators? Has anyone done that?

I discovered that the JP gear does not have the internal pins (trunnions) . This model of JP gear has solid legs which get clamped in the actuators. So, it is easy enough to shorten the main gear legs, one can do it with a hack saw and file.
The front leg is a bit more complex. I'm looking into it.
I have the JP set from a Joker. The Rebel Hot uses the same equipment but the legs are shorter. I'm getting a Rebel Hot and want to try and use the gear I have, rather than buy another set.

I have bought two sets of gear from jphobby in the EU, I talked to Florent, he is a really nice guy and know his stuff. This is his contact email. [email protected] He is really easy to deal with and he can tell you what you need to know. When I was looking for there gear they came up first and I sent them an email. I am in the USA like you, so It may be late at night before he emails you back but he will get back to you pretty fast.

I have the smaller set of JP in a mini Avanti and they are different. There is a 5mm pin between the legs and actuator.
