Great Part, but even GREATER Customer Service
  Ordered this awhile back to upgrade my current rifle. Liked them so much I ordered two more over the holidays for future builds. Only problem was when I got my order there was a mix up and I got 2 sets of Battle Arms ambi safety selector. Emailed and called to make a follow up, and not gonna lie these guys are great and working to square away this misshipment in a timely manner. The gents and ladies of Tactical Link have guaranteed my future business by having great customer service skills.

Enhanced Takedown & Pivot Pin Set for AR15 / 5.56 / .223
  Had my Daniel Defense lower apart to upgrade trigger and stock. This was a nice upgrade. Installation easy.

Nice upgrade
  Bought this for an omni poly lower that has thicker walls. The front pivot pin makes it much easier to take out since a stock one is recessed in the poly lower. The rear pin did not offer any improvement over stock on my lower, so I put it on a DPMS aluminum lower and like the center hole on the left end and the fingernail slot on the right side to be able to pull the pin out easier. I'm still looking for a longer rear pin for my poly lower

Not Worth It
  I bought this because I thought it would make sliding pins quickly. The front one's notched edges make it slightly easier to grab with the very tips of your Index Finger and Thumb, but the back one, in my opinion is the same or worse then the OEM pin. I find no difference in this pins then the OEM pins that come on the piece. Do they work, yes. Do they work better no. Idea to make something that you can grab and pull easily and, quickly at the range, wherever?? is great, love trying for innovation....but, had I been the inventor or marketer....I wouldn't have put it out there, yet. Just my opinion. All product likes and dislikes are a matter of taste, of course, to some these are a good piece of work. To me, they didn't finish the design.

mission accomplished! better than hoped for.
  Have this old pre-ban E.A. Arms lower that would accept very few uppers but with these pins allowed me to use a new BCM upper that I could never get the old pins to close on. Makes up for this lower being slightly out of spec. I think it's the slight taper, plus being longer they're easier to open with no tools!

  Upgraded my Ruger SR-556 and i'm impressed with how much of a difference its made. Easy to install and easy to use. What more could you want?

Is what it is...
  Like spoken of previously, don't know that I really need it, but it is an upgrade. Product comes with everything including a magnet for easy install. Can't go wrong if you have money to throw at it.

Super Product/Affordable/Easy Install
  I purchased two sets of these to install on both my and my wife's Delton AR-15. Installation was a breeze! To help with your install, watch the video Tactical Link has on the product page. However, here are a couple additional pointers. When removing the front takedown pin, instead of doing it exactly as on the video, after rotating the pin and before you remove, cover the pin with a rag. Then when you remove the pin the rag will not allow the detent to fly across the room and it will be right there when you remove the rag. On the rear, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO REMOVE THE CASTLE NUT. There is a great video on how to do this easily without removing the castle nut. Go to YouTube and search, AR-15-Staked Castle Nut? Takedown Pin Removal-Easy trick. I would use this method (because it is so easy) even if my castle nut was not staked. As to the product, at $30 you are just not putting that many coins out. Do you really need to do this. Depends, if you have zero problem with taking your AR down then maybe not. But if you have any problem at all even in the least, this product will remedy that 100%. Being just slightly longer than the original pins you can push the head just a little further away from the receiver and with the textured heads grasping and pulling is a snap. I like these so much I am now waiting for the product for the .308. As soon as they are available, I will buy. Again, fantastic little upgrade at a very affordable price.
