I looked at the new parts kit I received and the roll pins have multiple turns, not the straight cylinder with a slit thru it like my Colt units.

Which are better?

I still dont have my lower so I could switch out the pins to the "colt type"

What should the pins measure prior to Installation?

Thanks

One type is a coiled spring pin and the other a split spring pin. One type of the coiled one can be bought with low insertion force that makes it easy to install.

That is an awsome link. I learned more about roll pins then I ever thought possible.

I just love good information.

I'm going to upgrade to their SS Spirol pins on all my guns.
