I have a Colt Match Target that needs the screws and want to convert it to push pin.

ADCO did a great job on mine and the price was reasonable.

(Funny how most AR15-smith related questioned are answered with "ADCO"....)

I did both of my Match Targets. No problem.

What is the advantage of the push pin over the screw?

contact Ed at www.hdps.org/
He's done two for me and they came out perfect with great turn around time and a great price!

When switching or removing uppers is MUCH faster, much faster.

I'd say that they are talking about a small pivot with the raised fence, as there is no way to convert a large pivot slabside to mil-spec captive pin.

Some of the Colts with the raised fence still used a pivot pin with a single screw head. Some were even already drilled for the detent and pin, but they still used the screw. If the hole was not drilled, it's as simple as drilling the hole, then using a regular pivot pin, spring, and detent.

Will this convert a large hole lower to a small/mil-spec hole?

I don't beleive that is possible.

No, but there is a way to do that as well. Send the lower to Mike Klos at American Manufacturing. He can weld up the original large pivot hole and redrill it to small pivot specs. He did one for me, and it is tight as a wedge with absolutely no play between the upper and lower receivers.
