Good pinsThese pins are measuring somewhere in the ball park of rhc 50, so they're very good. But that also means to be sure you're ready to hammer it in the rest of the way. You should have less than 1/8 inches sticking out before you start pounding on it with a hammer. Of course, unless you have a hydraulic press handy, then it broaches its own hole.

Front Sight Taper Pin For AR-15
These pins are what you need if you are working with a front sight/gas block combo build. Uncoated, steel, 2/0 taper pin with a 3/4 inch overall length, replacement part. These are the pins that are used to pin the front sight/gas block combo to the barrel.
- Raw steel (may have some marks )
- 0.75" long
- (1) taper pin
- Any gun that uses the M16/AR-15 front sight block
Tools required: Tiny hammer, gaffer tape to prevent marking
Installation notes: Installation is easy if someone has pre-drilled the taper pin hole into your barrel. If your new barrel does not have this hole it might be tough to get everything lined up. Removing them can be a real b**tch too but can be made easier by Dremeling the thin end flat first and apply heat to the sight block before wailing on it with a pin punch.
