Battle Arms Development enhanced pin sets and titanium enhanced pin sets (BAD-EPS, BAD-EPS-Ti) from Omaha Outdoors are truly enhanced versions of the small parts they replace. Most people don't think twice about the pivot pin and takedown pin, but Battle Arms Development sure did. Minor changes to a few critical dimensions, along with knurling and strategically placed divots, make pushing and pulling on the pins significantly easier, important when needing to disassemble the rifle for cleaning or to clear a particularly confounding malfunction. Unlike other pin sets, though, these don't obnoxiously protrude from the rifle or snag on gear. In fact, they have a lower profile on the right side of the receiver than standard mil-spec pin sets! On the left, they're extended 0.030" for a noticeable change in your ability to start the pins moving from that side before pulling from the right. Of course, they're machined so as not to interfere with ambidextrous safeties such as the excellent BAD-ASS safety from Battle Arms Development.
BAD Titanium Pin Sets are Lighter, Too
As if making the rifle easier to take apart wasn't enough, the BAD-EPS-Ti kit includes a takedown pin and a pivot pin machined from titanium, saving you 50% of the weight compared to a standard mil-spec pin set. The additional EZ Guide Channel, available with both standard and titanium versions, also helps you install the ever-tricky pivot pin, preventing the loss of those tiny detents and springs. Total weight for the titanium pin set is just over a quarter of an ounce. Both sets are intended to be used with standard mil-spec 0.250" pin holes.
