Has anyone used them? I don't see the purpose never really had much of a problem with the old kind.  But in a weird way I kinda want to order a set just to check them out.

I put one on each of my Colts, a small pin carbine, and a large pin HBAR that were originally screw types. They work, but are not as easy to remove or insert as I thought they would be. Overall, they are an improvement over the screws.

Not to tight but while pressing the button, the outer rim(on the left side) has to be pushed through. It's not as easy as just pushing a pin but with practice almost. I too have a set on a lower I consider special and didn't want the standard spring/dent pin.

IMHO they appear to be milspec, no difference.  
Per KNS PRECISION, INC;
Takedown Pin replaces the rear, factory takedown pin to eliminate the need for a punch or other tools to disengage the pin.
Pivot Pin replaces the factory front pivot pin and is available for receivers drilled for .315" or .250" pivot pins.

Mine was excessively loose, so I took it off.

It was the "large Colt pin" model.
