Two products and a simple installation process delivers the fastest reloading for AR-15 rifles using Cross Armory’s QUICK PINS and SAFE MAG.

After quickly installing the QUICK PINS and SAFE MAG, the seamless integration allows for the fastest reloading with one pinch. The release allows for a one-step reload with no extra steps such as a bullet button to slow down the process.

And to avoid the magazine falling to the ground, simply rotate the AR-15 45 degrees to the left or right, squeeze the QUICK PINS and pull the mag out. Pop a new magazine in and your ready to size up the target and fire in just seconds.

The QUICK PINS also automatically lock the upper and lower receivers in place and gives you the easiest access to the firing mechanism.

And pairing the QUICK PINS with Cross Armory’s SAFE MAG gives you the most reliable solution in states requiring disassembly of the weapon before reloading.


The set up

To install the QUICK PINS, remove pins from AR-15’s main body (and don’t lose each spring inside).

Cross Armory’s QUICK PINS and SAFE MAG make a perfect combo for your AR-15.

Remove the rear takedown pin and allow the upper and lower receivers to separate. Loosen the castle nut and prevent the back plate from moving away too fast away from the lower receiver when loosening the castle nut. Remove the detent spring and pin, which allows the takedown pin to be removed.

Holding the buffer spring retainer pin, unscrew the buffer tube until it no longer impinges on the retainer pin. Remove the retainer pin, retainer pin spring and buffer tube.

Hold the QUICK PINS main body against the lower receiver and insert the alignment pin through the holes in the main body and lower receiver. Reinstall the buffer tube, buffer spring retainer spring and pin and the buffer spring. Tighten the castle nut and check the alignment.

Alignment between the QUICK PINS and lower receiver must be accurate. If the alignment rod cannot be removed, do not force it out. Instead realign the rod.

Once the castle nut is tight and rod removed, reinstall the pins into the main body.

Now you are ready to release, quickly reload your magazine and acquire the target all with the pinch of your fingers.

    Tried to install these on a 80% Arms lower receiver, guide rod would go through one side and through the receiver hole on the opposite side but not through the other quick pin hole. Its like the quick pins are not lined up. Rod goes through the receiver without the quick pins and it goes through the quick pins by themselves but not all together. Only way I see to make them work is to drill out my receiver and then nothing else would fit because the holes would be too big on the receiver. Guess I just wasted my money on this product.

    • Thank you for purchasing Cross Armory products. You absolutely have not wasted your money. If we cannot get it working we will help you sort it out with wherever you bought it. From what you describe I believe we have seen this problem a couple times. The first step is to talk with one of our engineers. We have tech support at 760-710-3101 ext 2. If you cannot call during normal business hours we will arrange a time to talk that is convenient for you.

      What make and model AR do you have? Did you buy the Quick Pins from us or somewhere else (this makes no difference with regard to getting you a discount, if that is what you want)?
