Default Juggernaut Tactical AR mod...

Picked one up yesterday, hadn't heard of it before. Guy at the gun shop had an AR set up with it...pretty slick I thought.

Anyone know if this satisfies the requirements to avoid registration? Saw the other thread on it but it didn't really answer the question. Or is it again a matter of, again, we don't know because the California DOJ refuses to give us anything specific as to these workarounds.

Sweet! That is a quicker mag change than with a bullet button.

Itís super popular right now for rifles. Turnerís and Ammo Bros is selling rifles with it. It likely passed both their lawyers interpretation.

I want to know if they are a valid way of outfitting AR Pistols for a way of complying.

33.3 tactical looks like the best option to me only because you keep the lrbho option. If the hellfighter kit did this it’d be my#1 pick. Just my 2 cents which is really worth a penny.

The rear pin is good but their mag lock system doesnít let you keep the bolt catch. I did 33.3 calcatch on front and juggernaut rear pin coming in the mail to replace my regular takedown pin

Ya, I like the 333 in front and Juggernaut is rear as well.

Is this a way of not having to register an ar pistol that was DROSíd as single shot and is semi.

I started this thread hoping to avoid your derailing of it like you did the other one.

Agree. Not great businesses acumen above...

The Juggernaut is pretty damn nice with the 333...

Does the JT rear and 33.3 front allow you to drop the mag when the bolt is back? Or is there a bit of modification thatís needed

I think the 333 has 2 options, one is the bolt stays back and one the bolt is forward after the mag is empty

I have heard of the Juggernaut Tactical option and want to get one when I can, but have never heard of the 333 option. I will check it out too.

Thanks for the info.

After more research I ordered the 33.3 tactical calcatch unmodified and will pair it with the Juggernaut rear pin.

I don't like the idea of the bolt carrier not locking back.

We'll see how it goes.

Let us know if the 33.3 catch will allow the mag release to function if you activate the JT latch with the bolt locked back.

That's the concern I have. Heard about bolt catching on magazine lips and people filing on them...i want something that works as an unmodified AR.

Neither the Kingpin or the Juggernaught rear pin will allow the upper to hinge open enough to change mags when the carrier is locked back.

That being the case, I actually prefer the lack of an automatic bolt catch as it allows you to reload when the mag runs empty without HAVING to manually activate the bolt release before you can hinge the upper open to change mags.

The better way is to do a tactical reload before the chamber runs dry though because then you don't have to cycle the carrier to load a cartridge from the new mag.

Protohypís pin allows to drop the mag with the bolt locked back but itís with armaglock. If it sold seperately and would work with 33.3 id buy it

Hey guys. I have the 33.3 calcatch and the king pin installed right now. It doesn't not allow you to drop the mag with the bolt held back. However, if you drop the bolt and press the button it has plenty of room to drop the mag. I'm wondering if someone wants to try working the 33.3 cal catch to release the mag with bolt hold back when the kingpin/ juggernaut pin is pressed.

I would like to see that in person.
Maybe it happens with a special carrier or a really sloppy fitting carrier, but not with in-spec parts.

It can work if you shave enough material off the AR Maglock where it slides in between the upper and lower. Even with the minimal amount of opening with a locked back bolt, it can work but it takes a bit of finagling.

AR Maglock already did that work for you with the Gen 2 kits

Was about to order a couple juggernaut tactical sets, only because i dont like the togglinf and then retoggling to hing it closed of the 33.3 setup. Just discovered videos of the kingpin setup but like others mentioned, the fact they recommend making sure the upper and lower fittings arent set super tight leaves me questionkng it when i run Mega arms as well as new frontier setups that are perfectly tight.

You guys mixing and matching parts out of these expensive kits?! Dang thats getting expensive.

Juggernaut started selling ďreplacement partsĒ so the rear pin is $44. Calcatch is 30-35 I believe

I did it with an ARMaglock and Juggernaut and so did a fellow shooter after I recommended the mod to him.

It takes fine tuning to get it right but it works.

I installed a Gen2 ARmaglock kit with the kingpin the other day.
Even though the armaglock is VERY THIN, it was not enough to slip in between the upper and lower with the bolt locked back.
As I said before, you need a very sloppy fitting carrier and buffer tube for it to work as the parts come.
Further shaving of the Gen2 ARmaglock would make the ARmaglock easy to break just with finger pressure.
