These pins work well and are definitely more convenient compared to milspec pins. Easily started/popped by hand from the left side, they are comfortable to grip and pull the rest of the way.
Pulling these pins without starting them from the left is possible, but difficult due to how close the extentions are to the reciever when the pin is all the way in and the resistance of the retention detents to being removed from the deeper recess'.
They are very light, but don't feel flimsy or fragile and were well machined and well polished (I got the plain TI finish, not the black).
My only complaint is that the shape of the extention is such that it blocks normal use of a left handed safety lever .This must be endemic to all extended takedown pins due to their location though, so it's a tradeoff all extended pins have and not an issue with this product in particular. The lever is only partially obstructed so it can still be used, but is uncomfortable and requires a workaround technique to use the ambi safety effectively. This would be less of an issue when using longer/extended safety levers with an ambi safety.
V7 makes a great pin set that I would definitely recommend to right handed shooters, and even to left handed shooters who want frustration-free upper-from-lower dissasembly and don't mind the effect on safety manipulation.
