LMT 308 sized guns use SR-25 spec pins.

That's because you are fully capable of operating the standard pins.
Others are not.
Hence, we have companies making products for the fragile little flowers.

Capitalism in action, people buy stuff because they want it. Needing something is not required. Lol

To be fair, the MWS pins are really tight. Unless you have disassembled an MWS, you are talking out of your lane. These guns arent pieced together bottom barrel rifles with random tolerances which im sure your own experience is referring to

I bought one of these to carry in my Range Bag. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/10...n-punch-delrin I realize its not High Tech, or Expensive, but form fit and function is as advertised. And......Wait for it.....Wait for it.....Wait for it.....It works for all MSR type rifles and possibly other firearms as well......

if anyone knows where I can get some tactical titanium takedown and pivot pin detents that would be great.

If I can get them in Mil-Spec, I will get some of that fluid.

They will be some sweet detent pins !!!


Geeked about this !!!

If you think I am in the least concerned about you and your reality must be pretty ... interesting.


You have been tested, and found wanting.

That is your own bad luck. Has nothing to do with me - blame genetics

OP you and your weak little fingers are an embarrassing disgrace to humanity. Have you considered testosterone supplements, or voting Democrat?

HAHA just kidding.

You appatently caught the others in this thread on their manstrual cycle. Seems like they have synced up. Gross.

I have the delrin pin, but it is one more thing to reach for and to lose.

I have long considered getting the extended pins, which make far more practical sense than much of the crap others buy for their AR's. They are a good idea, menstruating mall operators' opinions be dammed.
