does anyone know what size pin i need to use with a postban bushmaster lower, the .154 or the .1555 thanks.

Unless your holes are oversized, you should go with the .154

Yep, use the standard 0.154 pins or you will need to use a reamer.

Their attributes are discussed HERE.

They prevent the steel fire control pins from walking or rotating in the aluminum lower & wearing the holes out, resulting in loose fit. One of the best real improvements available for the AR series.

If it can be bolted, snaped, or screwed to an AR someone will buy it
Hey, its always easier to buy someting cool then it is to buy practice ammo and learn to shoot.



I bought them for my transferable M16 rifle. I have no interest in egging out the holes on my $10K+ lower receiver.

If your pins are "walking out" you have under sized pins which need replacing. That's a whole $1 worth of parts. If thats not good enough for you get out the loctite. Push out the pins from about 1/32". Put a dab of loc tite 262 in the recess and push the pins back in place. Let it set for about 20 minutes and done. Thats how the Marines installed my friends KM triggers.

"improve trigger feel" Gimme a break. Put on a blindfold and test several triggers and see if you can find the "improve trigger feel".




So, does this fit into the same category as your Clone Brake for SPR style barrels?

Steve & Chuck - you remind me of Ken Hallock a retired Air Force Armorer from Tulsa. Ken builds excellent .45 autos. He sets up at some of the big gunshows and pretty much believes in function and reliability. He, Ken, is not much for bells and whistles if they do not improve reliability or function.

This is a compliment not a flame.

Has Ken moved to Tulsa, or is it just there you've seen him at shows?

Unless he's moved, (a possibility as I moved to Tulsa) he's lived for years in S OKC. I'll have to ask him, next time I see him.

BTW, Ken knows his stuff on 1911 pistols, he's done work for me before.

I can spell it, I just can't afford it. Even if I could I would never pay that kind of cash for a novelty.
