    I talked to a guy at the range who did this, he made his own kit.......this guy sells them. You still need a tool, but looks like much easier take down, especially at the range if needed than tapping it out

    Guys, this is dead simple. You can find your own taps and screws easily, but I do understand how "one stop shopping" is desirable. But this is really simple... You want a long set screw with an inset allen to do this. Around here, one might have to go to 2 supply houses to get the proper items. It's an all day project that way. :eek:

    the hardware stores I went too, I couldnt find the set screw with the pin end on it
     
  10. I e-mailed him last night and got a prompt, cordial response at around noon today.

    YMMV
     
  11. For what it's worth . . .

    I have seen this video and several other threads on various forums on this subject, including this one.

    There are always a few guys that post saying "just go to the hardware store",or variations on this theme.

    Yes, cheap taps and allen wrenches are easy to find, that is true.

    BUT . . .

    I have tried to find a set screw like this one and put some effort into it and could not find it.
    Maybe I am looking in the wrong places, or my "Google-Foo" isn't powerful enough !

    If you guys that insist that this item is so easily found, would,you guys be so kind as to please enlighten those of us that are not as talented at searching out hardware items, and tell us EXACTLY where this item can be so easily found.

    I am sure there are others here that would really appreciate the help. I for one, know I would.

    Thanks

    I took a screen shot of it and sent an email to a screw manufacturer and asked what it is, I'll let you know what they say.

    I was able to find similar, but not exactly like it. I just want to know what they're called! :confused:

    Hmmm
    I would have used a full thread set screw, but that would at least only come out one way.
     
  19. I just use a allen wrench to take out the pin. Seems IMO just as easy as turning a screw. Yea you need to tap it, but hey finding a improvised device to tap out the pin should not be that hard.

    I actually said "supply house" meaning a hardware supplier. Big Diff!
    I was thinking about the standard long set screws, not screw pins. The screw pins would definitely be better!
    As for my comments above, I've always been a DO-er.
    But I agree, sometimes finding the parts and pieces is the hardest part.
