Okay so i am the proud papa of a my first AR-15. Now i have a question my take down pins are really tight. I have a all stag lower and a all stag upper. Should they be real tight. Will they loosen up after a while or should i be worried.

They should not be too tight. One or the other could be out of spec. Call the factory or take a drill to the rear lug on the upper in a pinch and remove just a little. Personally I'd call Stag.

So i just talked to Riflegear and explained what was going on and they said all the new stags take down pins are real tight i even told him i had to use a mallet to light tap them in and use a punch to lightly tap them out. He said it was normal and they would loosen up over time and the tighter the better as long as they go in. Just for good measure i will take it to a local gunsmith and have him check it out before I fire it.

I doubt they're out of spec, people over react too quickly. Call Stag? Great idea, lol. Just like the guy calling the Glock head office to ask where he can find an OD G19.

Some are tighter than others, work them and they'll get looser. It's not like you're taking it apart all that often though.

they will get lose, nothing to worry about, i kinda liked it when my model 8 pins were on the snug side. but now after about 2500 rounds they pop out easily and smooth.

Would you rather it be loose now and get more so over time? Then you would have to worry about them popping loose in the field :eek:
