Stripped rear takedown pin/ 3rd party replacement?
Posted 01 January 2013 - 06:12 PM
I need a replacement, is there a list somewhere of compatible takedown pins? I dont want this style again and would much rather have a simple pin with a small o-ring on it.

Are you using the correct hex key (2.5mm)? I have taken my gun apart over a thousand times and I have never stripped a body pin.

The Allen wrench socket?
The screw threads?
(New screw will fix either of these.)
The pin threads?

If the problem is the stripped socket:
1. Try a brand new Allen wrench. They usually have sharper profiles and may engage tight enough.
2. Use a "donor Allen wrench" and a drop of epoxy in the socket. Let it sit overnight and unscrew the whole assembly. Maybe try Super Glue if it's handy but don't get either all over the place.
