Milspec Trigger

Had problems with a milspec trigger pin walking left and dropping inside, stopping the trigger from working. Picked up a set of the cheaper anti walk pins with a Torx screw on each end. Works like a charm. Found the guy who put my Spikes lower together used the hammer pin on the trigger. Duh!

My question on the milspec pins... one pin has a center notch and end notch. The other just the center notch. I know the end notch is for the hammer spring tip, to do the whole anti walk process and hold the trigger pin in place. And the hammer pin doesn't need one, because no spring tip to lay on it.

Anyway, why are the trigger AND hammer pin notched in the center?

Re: Milspec Trigger

I'm not sure about the notch in the pins, but I can tell you that at times it's the lower that is out of tolerance.

There is a guy in NY that has a neat replacement trigger pin.

I know that I had a PSA lower that would walk the pin and I replaced them with different pins. I realized that the lower was out of tolerance.

KNS makes some nice anti walk pins.
