When you decide to start making upgrades to your AR it’s important to prioritize. You certainly will benefit more by making a number of smaller changes, that when put together creates value. Ultimately, improving your firearm more than one big item would. Even something as small as a set of Armaspec stainless steel takedown pin detents will result in years of worry-free service, so you can focus on the bigger picture.
You’re not going to put your AR together and leave it alone. You’re a shooter and as such no weapon you fire is too sacred to escape your tinkering. If nothing else, think about how many times will that AR be broken apart simply to clean it? Pins rotate each time, takedown pin detents wear, and takedown springs lose just a bit of life every time they’re brought into action. Armaspec stainless components are designed to be tough enough to take the repeated use.
Armaspec stainless steel takedown springs are designed to deliver the correct, constant pressure to hold your takedown pin detents in place. That’s kind of important, because if that hidden pin detent doesn’t stay in place, then neither does your pin. At the very least that would be quite embarrassing. You can just imagine how many views that video would get, with your upper and lower receivers just doing their own thing. Additionally, please don’t just get one set, these things are easy to lose and they’re priced reasonably.
