Definitely wait.

They are working on a completely new arm specifically for the Kingpin and doesnt require a spacer to fit to your rifle. It will be completely adjustable for most in spec lowers.

My engineer should be receiving ALL the pre production prototypes for final testing this week, hopefully everything passes and we can go straight to production. Crossing our fingers but I'm sure you know how R&D goes.

The current .308 arm won't work with my .308 Kingpin so yes definitely wait.

I installed a Gen 2 on my Aero M5. I had to custom make my own spacer because the one that comes with the AR10 kit and the AR10 wide body adapter kit from Maglock are terrible and basically unusable. The flat face on the tube portion and spacer allows it to rotate which then causes it to become misaligned and get stuck or not in line with where the receivers meet.

So to fix this I used a Gen 2 arm with custom made spacers that have two locking tabs built into them on the side that goes into the mag catch and two tab notches that line up with the tabs on the Gen 2 arm. I made 3 out of 3 different materials. Aluminium, nylon and brass.

It works perfect now. Then I put a Hellfighter rear button on it which works great. I'm still going to put a Kingpin on it when you release it I just couldn't wait any longer to get it operational. I tell everyone Gen 2 with Kingpin is the best setup on the market hands down. I use them and have installed them for several people.

Thanks shinobi!


Yeah I forced AR Maglock to completely redesign their arms so there will be vast improvements to the interface and no need for a spacer anymore and complete adjustability for fit on AR15 and AR10.

I do believe that the machinist is about to drop samples in the mail for the engineer to test so Iím starting to feel it.


There are two contenders for the spring for the .308 Kingpin so once the samples are in hand we have to decide between Zinc coated Music wire or Stainless Steel

AR Maglock for a while have been using spacers to accommodate .308 tolerance differences so basically you would sand down the spacer to the proper fit.

The whole line will be changing soon so a spacer will no longer be needed.

Default Best setup recommendation

So, what's still considered the best setup for 5.56? Is it still AR Maglock Gen 2 + Kingpin? Or maybe AR Maglock Gen 3 and Kingpin? Just wondering which is the closest to the OEM mag release operation.

Yes. That is pretty much the closest thing. If speed is your thing as well as full function then this is the setup to use

Thank you. Just placed the order. Can't wait to try it out and hopefully get rid of my ugly featureless builds.

Hey proto- moving my question over here:

Upper and lower wonít separate with the bolt back.

Iím running an Aero lower and Windham upper with a standard Faxon bcg. I took this upper off another AR that had no issues with the Kingpin ever. On another build, Iím running the same Aero lower and havenít had any issues with the Kingpin not opening the gun with the bolt back. Itís just this latest build where itís an issue.

Does the Aero lower have a set screw to tighten up the tolerances?

Yes it does. I honestly had no idea what that was- usually I use Anderson lowers. Had to look it up. So I imagine I loosen it and that will put less pressure on the kingpin?

Okay I was able to sneak away to the worktable- adjusting the set screw doesnt seem to make any difference. Whether its tightened all the way down or taken out it still wonít open on an open bolt.

are you able to throw that Windham upper on another lower that may have the Kingpin? I'm just curious if you can do some mixing and matching to see what the results are. You can also switch Kingpins if you have mutiples but honestly it doesnt seem to be an issue with the Kingpin.

Are you saying also that the receiver doesn't open at all? or opens just a little bit? Sometimes buffer tubes run different tolerances that don't allow BCG's much wiggle room.

The windham upper came from another build that ran the kingpin and it worked perfectly. The upper and lower does separate if I pull them apart with the bolt back but they wonít crack open without manual assistance.

Ive been running the JP captured silent spring things in all my builds and havenít had an issue with them but maybe this ones a bit off?

It could be.

try taking the Kingpin out and with the receivers attached manually lock the bolt back (carefully of course, may require an extra hand) and then open the receiver to see how much room there is. If you still see the same amount of room as with the Kingpin installed we can probably narrow that down to tolerance stacking of parts even though they're from the same manufacturer. If that's the case I'd say that putting some hard rounds down range should open it up more and eventually give the desired result.

Hey guys. Just to let you know I got the big thumbs up from the engineer on the .308 Kingpin! We will be in production very shortly!

I had the samething happen to my Aero AR10. It has the factory FDE Cerakote finish which is thicker then standard AR finishes in my experience. Even with bolt closed it wouldn't open unless I physically pulled them apart. Confused me for a few minutes then I realized with the Kingpin out it was sticking when rotating the upper open. The Cerakote was so thick that the upper and lower were rubbing against each other and in complete contact with each other. There was zero gap at all between the upper rear pin "flange" or whatever it is called and the inside of the lower. To fix it I took a dremel and grinded off the Cerakote on the sides of the uppers rear pin flange until it no longer stuck when opening and closing the upper from the lower. Then reinstalled the hellfighter pin and it worked fine.

So long story short is your Aero lower Cerakoted? Or even if not is there no space between the upper and lower rear pin areas? Are the touching, grinding, binding, etc.?

Hope this helps.

Edit: Accidentally said kingpin I meant Hellfighter pin so I changed that. That is what I put temporarily on my AR10 since the AR10 kingpin hasn't been released yet. I have kingpin and maglock gen 2 installed on AR15 and have installed multiple kingpins and Maglocks for friends.

Thanks for that report. I know itís buried deep in this thread but I mentioned that Cerakote or any tolerance changes are problematic for any takedown pin that needs to function fast. Also the build up of Cerakote on the top of the lower and bottom of upper aid in keeping the takedown pins farther apart hindering function.

Obviously it could still be other things. I have multiple spikes lowers and my snowflake one doesnít function well. I guess they made it that way to prove that snowflakes are not a viable functioning part of society

Proto,

How does the Kingpin get reinserted past the detent in the receiver with no tools? Does it push itself past somehow?

When I insert the Kingpin from the left side I push it all the way through until it hits our supplied detent. Once it pushes the detent out I can actually grab the detent with my fingernail and push it back and the Kingpin will engage the release channel and you just rotate it into the locking channel.

A little hard to understand without seeing it

Is that for the version currently available, or has the redesigned version not been released yet?
