Looking for this MIL connector

    I'm looking for a 19-pin socket according to MIL-C-26482. The pins
    are 1mm in diameter, and they are arranged within a hexagonal
    outline with about 3.3 mm inter-pin distance (the enclosing
    circle is 13.2 mm).

    Of course the standard distributors carry tons of these connectors
    but I'm at a loss as which one to get because I can't find any real
    drawings with measurements.

    All I actually need is the insulator piece with the socket pins
    because this connection is not a "real" plug-socket one. I just
    want to avoid having to plug each single wire individually. In fact
    a proper socket shell wouldn't fit in this place anyway.

    From your description, what you want is what's called the 'insert'
    and the connector you're referring to is most likely an
    MS3470L1419P. the pins are MS39029/4-10.

    Usually, the manufacturers of these connectors have huge stocks of
    components which they only assemble into specific connectors when
    they're ordered. The inserts are cemented into the shells and are
    impossible to remove without damage unless the shell is turned down
    to the point where the silicone insert has no metal surrounding it.

    Knowing that you want only the insert and the pins, you should be
    able to order them, without the shell, from a distributor or maybe
    even get them sampled from a manufacturer.

    Here's a good catalog:

    For most MIL series connectors the contact arrangement and dimensions
    are given in the MIL standard. Go to the Mil Standard ASSIST web site,
    enter 26482 into the search and you should find the spec you're
    looking for.
