The AR-15 was not intended to be
opened by the user with great frequency. Increased use translates into
increased wear on the upper receiver’s takedown pin hole. Cross Armory’s
PIN PAL transfers the rotational wear from a steel pin bearing on the
aluminum receiver to a steel pin bearing on a pre-lubricated MIL-SPEC
metal bearing, keeping your gun as tight as it was from the factory.
*NOTE: Fits all AR-10s except the M&P 10
The Cross Armory PIN PAL .308/AR-10
is designed to reduce or eliminate that wear that will be caused by the
repeated opening and closing of the upper and lower receivers, as now
required by so-called assault weapon laws in states like California, New
York, New Jersey and other states. The gun manufacturer never intended
for the aluminum receivers to be frequently pivoted on a steel front
takedown pin. This action will cause accelerated wear on the
through-hole in the receiver causing the hole to expand and elongate.
Fitment of the upper and lower receivers will become sloppy, making your
weapon less dependable. Replacement of an upper receiver is an
PIN PAL .308/AR-10 includes a pin, a
locking nut and a brass alloy bearing. The pin and nut are machined
from 4140 Ordnance Steel for extreme durability. The custom machining of
the assembly allows PIN PAL to be built to very tight tolerances.
PIN PAL .308/AR-10 is a simple and
inexpensive solution to eliminate the wear of a standard steel takedown
pin on the softer aluminum upper receiver. It’s bad enough that legal
gun owners have to separate their receivers in order to reload. It will
be far worse if an upper receiver has to be replaced as a result.
