Jeff: Are you using real-steel pivot/takedown pins and real-steel magazine catch? If so, What mods did you do to get them on or are they just a drop-in fit? As for fire-selector, how did you get the BAD-CASS on there in your older pictures... or is there any chance you will be selling the 45 degree selector centre? Thanks

I described the process required and the reason for the installation of the RS Pivot/Takedown pin on post #77 of this thread. The Pins I used, as Beach would have found through Google, is the Battle Arms Development ETP/EPP Set. They are absolutely superb by the way.

The Magazine catch was actually not Real-Steel. They are the Guarder steel Magazine catch and release button (the button is actually aluminium), and it required no mods to fit the MKM. In the photo I posted you could not actually see the allen screw on the button, as it was Photoshopped out to look more realistic.

The older pictures' B.A.D. Levers was attached to a modified Crusader Tech's B.A.D. Selector centre. It is completely incompatible with the PTS MKM, and one of my motivations to create the 45 degree ambi selector.

I do have plans to make some 45 degree selector centres to sell, but as they are quite tricky to mill, especially the 45 degree position divots, only a very limited run will be produced.

Hi Jeff, I need your help again.

I ordered the Guarded firing pin you recomended and am looking to install it.
Can you please confirm the correct lower body disassembly procedure?
I believe it would be as simple as removing the two pins that hold the tigger and hammer groups, but I applied some force and didn't accomplish much.
Do they have a particular side to push towards or some kind of safety block?

Thanks!

No need to remove the trigger group to get to the firing pin.

Boobie, I'd be much obliged if you could tell me how it's supposed to be done, I'm no expert. Thanks!
