Ratings & Reviews
What a great idea
by Seth -
It really goes on easily to Ruger and Spike's lowers. I sed it through a genuine Colt bolt catch without a problem. (I don't know why someone would downgrade this because their rifle is out of spec!!??!)
<br>There are a few install ideas here. I used a roll pin starter (hollow) that was slightly smaller than the OD of the c-clip. Wrapped in masking tape. A very easy push for the clip to get on.
Good Fit and Not Hard to Install
by Michael -
It fit my JD Machine upper really well.
<br>I used a small straight blade screwdriver with a magnet. I stuck the clip to the end of the screwdriver, put it in place, and pushed it on.
A Good Item But Not For DPMS
by ReconViper1 -
I bought one and was disappointed to find that it was too short, so I called KNS. They researched it and said that it would not fit my DPMS lower and offered to take it back if I had bought from them but I hadn't. I just kept it as it would cost as much to return it to PA as I had in it.
<br>I built a carbine last weekend for a friend and used it on his Anderson lower where it fit perfectly. Will put one in my new lower.
No problems here

Works great and it's nice to have the ability to remove the bolt catch pin without much trouble. I found the best way to install the C-Clip is with a pair of tweezers, or at least get it started where it belongs and seat it with a punch. You can also use the tweezers to remove it if need be. When I first saw this item I went to my lath and made one to see just how effective it would be. Mine works but to have one that's the right color is a plus.
KNS Quality, new and testing...

I was unsure about this at first, but wanted to give it a shot. I'm not disappointed with it either. The C-Clips are a pain in the rear to get on, however it's a great fit. I'm using this on my Aero Precision Freedom lower build and it works.
Great idea, poor execution
by Matt -
Great idea. But, the lower does not allow the pin to slide in all the way so you cannot put the c clip on. Even if you could, it doesn't look like the c clip would have enough room to fully seet on the pin.
