Front Sight Taper Pin (Long)
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 1 inch overall length. These are the pins that are used to pin the front sight/gas block combo to the barrel. Note these are 1" long so you'll have to grind/trim them.
- Raw steel (may have some marks )
- 1" long
- (1) taper pin
- Any gun that uses the M16/AR-15 front sight block
Tools required: Tiny hammer, gaffer tape to prevent marking, grinder
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.
