View Full Version : AR takedown pins

August 6, 2006, 01:53 PM
I have an AR with a collapsible (sp?) stock, and the ring that holds the stock on the weapon came loose and I ended up loosing the spring that holds the rear takedown pin in place, and it now falls out after a few magazines. Is there anywhere that I can get this spring or a set of replacements.

Thank you very much

To prevent the collar from unscrewing, it's set up to be staked in place.

Install the collar with the notches facing FORWARD, toward the muzzle.
Tighten the collar tight, then use a punch to push metal from the plate that fits in front of the collar into the notches.
This will prevent the collar from unscrewing, and will lock the entire assembly in place.
