What's included:

The EPS features the following improvements:

  • Keystone shaped and dimpled pivot pin head
  • Easy, hassle free magnet-assisted installation of the pivot pin
  • Knurled circumference and a reverse angled flat on the head of the takedown pin head for improved gripping surface
  • 0.030" longer length aids in pushing the pins out, without being obtrusive
  • Low profiled pin heads, the ETP is compatible with ambidextrous selector's right lever
  • Bullet tip guide at the tip of the pins to prevent the bullet or tool from slipping off and scratching the receiver
  • Secondary detent hole and groove milled past the milspec detent hole and groove on the pivot pin, with the help of a small magnet (included), making the installation of the pivot pin effortless

Compatible with receivers of standard widths, and also compatible with the

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.

Keeping things simple!
  Installed this on a new lower I was building since the pivot pin is always the "fun" part to install. This is quick and simple and was on in a second. Seems to work well so I'm happy with it.

Much better !
  Bought these for my HK MR223 (similar to the US-version HK MR556). It has a finicky push-pull/push-push for takedown. And if you loose the special tool you're pretty much screwed. Watched the install-video, followed the instructions - it all went flawless. So far they are in my opinion by far better (and easier !) than the HK-solution. They work - buy them :) I'd recommend them (and Tacticallink !) to anyone who asks.

BAD Enhanced Takedown
  Bought these for my Daniel Defense AR15. Terrific product. Easy install. Watched a YouTube video for special trick where you do not need to loosen the castle nut for the rear install. Simple place your old front pin in the opposite side of the rear pin that you are replacing. The pin will keep the detent pushed in while you remove the old pin. Easy. Thanks Tactical Link!

Did I really need this???
  Does it improve accuracy or function? Of course not. But it is kind of cool and adds some personality to your AR. The hardest part of the instalation was getting the old pins out. The whole magnet tghing is quite clever.

Nice upgrade !
  Used on my DPMS Panther. The takedown pin was a breeze(with the right tools).You need a castle nut wrench and an armorers block.The pivot pin is a little tricker than the video shows. The detent kind of floats in the holding cavity but with a little patience its about the easiest way I've found to replace this pin. Great idea and a great product..
