True. The FCG (hammer and trigger) pins in current Colt rifles are .170, being referred to as "large pin." This affected the hammer, disconnector, trigger, and lower receiver. You will have to take this into consideration when installing an aftermarket FCG, be it a drop in like Chip McCormack, or just replacing parts of your stock FCG. Many of the precision or 2-stage triggers are available in the larger size, but you will have to make sure of what you are getting prior to ordering. If you have one picked out, it may be a good idea to post on the board, and see if anyone had had trouble with installation or function.
