The AR-15 pivot pin, as are all of our Keepshooting.com 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. In general, if a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement becomes immediately necessary – not only to keep a firearm functioning properly but also to ensure the safety of yourself and those around you.
