These aluminum pins are noticeably lighter than the stock steel pins! They are also probably stronger than standard AR15 aluminum pins, because the GWACS pins don't have long slots cut in them for the takedown & pivot detents. Definitely a "Win-Win" product!

Well made, solved my problem of the pins not staying in. I do wish they did not need to be completely removed to open the rifle up.

Pins are extremely light weight and very well made. Make inserting into the poly lower much easier. Priced right. Had a little trouble with a shipping delay but Michel promised to take care of me on my next order. Will buy from GWACS again. Great company. And gives first responder discounts. Very classy. Thanks GWACS

These have come a long way from some early web reviews. The finish is excellent and they save a bit if weight off the steel pins.

These pins slide better than the steel ones and are lighter as well!
