Mil Specs have changed over the years.
They have had a moderate case of HK itis, because civilian shooters suck and we hate you!
I belief both of these have some element of truth, at some point they did change over to the quick take down pivot pin (not sure of date), and later on they had the whole large pin/small pin shell game for mere mortals.
I am sure some Colt fan boys will chime in.
BTW 2 of my ARs are in fact Colts.
Colt hates us, though not quite as much as H&K.
But remember this, Colt is believed to be the Holy Grail of the "Bow Before the Mil-Spec" crowd.
I to have colts. Two 6920 in the safe and I have owned many others with the stupid double sided flat head big screw.
Wish we had some,
