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.
