Underground Tactical Arms is introducing their new Enhanced Takedown Pin Set. These new Takedown Pins from Underground Tactical feature a series of grooves machined into the heads of the pins that let you use the rim of a 5.56 casing to pull them out if they are tight. If you have owned more then one AR you have probably dealt with the common issue of extremely tight takedown pins between some upper and lower receivers. Some times you can push them partially out with the tip of a bullet but some are really stubborn and need a little extra help. Some companies resort to extending the length of the pins and making a head that you can pull on but they can get in the way of using safety selectors, etc. 

Underground Tactical Takedown PinsProduction units will be Black. Shown here before coating.

Underground Tactical Arms will be producing these for both AR15 and AR10 at $14.99 and $19.99 respectively. As far as we know the launch date will be in about two weeks at which time they will be available for sale at www.UndergroundTactical.com. We’ll be sure to post this again as soon as they are available for sale.

NEW!! Iron Viper Pivot/Takedown Pin Detent and Spring Combo

Posted on June 24th, 2014 by ar15news

If you’ve ever assembled an AR-15 lower, you are very aware that aside from a few pesky roll pins, the Spring and Detent that are used to keep the Takedown Pin in place can be the most annoying pieces to install. Quite often you hear stories of or may have even experienced yourself the slight slip of the hand that sends the Spring and Detent flying across the room. You would think that you would just walk over and pick them up but while shooting across the room at the speed of light, they disintegrate into to dust and are never seen again. 

The guys at Iron Viper know this feeling first hand and have decided to create a Detent that the Spring actually locks onto making it very simple to install the Front Takedown Pin. These will also work well with installing the rear Takedown Pin as well. The original idea was to only offer these with their Gen2 Takedown Pin sets but they decided to offer them separately too. Right now they are offering an introductory price of just $7 with FREE SHIPPING for 2 Detent and Spring combos. Be sure to use the code “freeship” at checkout to get the free shipping. Purchase at www.IronViper.co.
