    AR15 trigger pin

    Hi. I lost one of my AR15 trigger assembly pins- I installed a drop in trigger and lost one.

    Itís the pins that poke through the receiver above the trigger itself.

    Anyone have any spares?

    Cheers

    Iíll have a look in my AR parts box tonight.
    Although with a drop in trigger, you will need anti walk pins, otherwise itís going to keep on happening.

    I installed a drop in trigger and was having the same problem, and I couldnt find any anti-walk pins in NZ at the time. I just cut 2 squares of black duct tape and used that for about 6 months until I happened on some pins.
    I would just go buy some anti-walk pins. They are not expensive.

    Thanks Dogmatix, I knew about the KNS non walking pins but not these. Thereís some no name ones on TM but the quality is unknown.
    The brand in your link sounds to be a good one
    Cheers

    Ha ha. Yes we used a nail and some silver duct tape to keep shooting!

    As do Gun Supplies:

    https://www.gunsupplies.co.nz/firear...-trigger-pins/

    I did the same thing recently - lost a trigger group pin. While trying to buy a replacement I was informed the Rise Armament drop in trigger group I'd installed as two grub screws that need to be tightened to prevent exactly that issue! Go figure. Those grub screws were not included in any kind of instructions I've ever seen but sure enough they are there and, when tightened, prevent the loss of the two 5/32" pins. A quick review of Youtube showed plenty of videos detailing the grub screws when installing trigger groups - Yay for GOOGLE.

    If you need to use your rifle before you get a genuine replacement in the mail, cut the shank off a 5/32" drill bit and use that.

    Yes thanks, I have a fail zero drop in which also has the grub screws, shame the instructions never mentioned that they were there, like you say completely hidden!
