Removing Front Take Down Pins on AR Receivers?

Using a small pin or somethingaimilar to depress the detent and allow the pin to slide out is how I've always done it. Haven't come across anything glamorous and lose the detent about half the time because it really flies on out if not contained when pin is removed...but this works for me. Tiny blade of a precision slotted screwdriver works nicely, blade width needs to fit in channel in pin.

This.

 

If you don’t have a spare detent and spring, don’t remove the pin. Or at least do it somewhere smart... like inside a tiny bathroom with the drain in the sink stoppered so that it has nowhere to go. 😂


If you rip it out like a boss and lose it, just accept it:

Put the lower and  pin punch in a clear ziplock bag and take apart in the bag, that way if the pin flys, it’ll be trapped in the bag

 

Yup.. get a micro screw driver and depress the detent and remove the pin.

 

I use a clevis pin to install the take downs.
