In our sports-centric society, the word pivot really only has one meaning, which stems from basketball. Plant your foot, pivot and create some space. Then drive to the hole. Congratulations, you are a superstar. But in the real world, pivot has multiple meanings, one of which stems from everyone's favorite simple machine, the lever.

In a lever system, the pivot is the point of rotation. With that in mind, you can see why what many people refer to as the front takedown pin in the AR-15 platform is actually dubbed the pivot pin. Here is a hint – once the takedown pin has been removed, the pivot pin serves as the point around which the upper receiver and barrel assembly rotate. Of course, none of this matter if we were not prepared to offer you an AR-15 pivot pin, which we most definitely are.

The AR-15 pivot pin, as are all of our house brand spare and replacement parts for the AR-15 platform, is a brand new part produced in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that holds several foreign military contracts. As such, all parts are compatible with and interchangeable in any MIL-SPEC AR-15.

Located through the front of the lower receiver adjacent the magazine well, the AR-15 pivot pin is a small pin designed to secure the positions of both the lower and upper receivers relative to one another. This small component is of utmost significance, as its inclusion allows for both the assembly and disassembly of the rifle. Moreover, the pivot pin allows the upper receiver and barrel assembly to pivot around the lower receiver once the takedown pin has been removed, which provides for simple cleaning and routine maintenance without fully disassembling the rile. Without the pivot pin installed, operation of the rifle would be extremely dangerous.  

Spare and replacement parts are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly – especially those components that may have an impact on the firing sequence.
