Rotor Clip A-300 – The AR Ejection Port Cover Hinge Pin Clip Tool
AR Ejection Cover Hinge Pin Clip Tool
AR-15 and AR .308 Ejection Cover Hinge Pin Clip Tool – There are a couple tricky areas when building an AR-10, 308 AR AR-15 etc. All are pretty easily tackled with special tools and patience. There is one part though rarely mentioned as being difficult but can give a builder fits (especially this guy with missing/short fingers). That part is the tiny c-clip on the ejection port door cover. It’s small and difficult to install with ease. Well the other day I was browsing Brownells gunsmithing tools section of their website when I happened across what they have labeled “AR Ejection Cover Hinge Pin Clip Tool“. It turns out this handy little gem of a tool is from a company called ROTOR CLIP. Rotor clip is a manufacturer of snap-rings, e-clips and yes the c-clip of the AR15 Ejection Cover Hinge Pin. Rotor Clip also manufacturers tools for installing and removing the previously mentioned fasteners.In this case the tool is a C-Clip Installation Tool manufacturers part number is A-300. I checked stock at industrial supply houses as well as Amazon and Sears $46 was the going rate, Yikes. Brownells was half the cost plus I’m an edge member and have those shipping perks.
I think tonight I will go home and remove all the c-clips from my ejection port cover pins just to reinstall them just for fun.
AR15 Ejection Cover Hinge Pin Clip Tool features split-lip design that lets you easily install ejection cover hinge pin clip. No more c-clips shooting across the room. Just slide c-clip into recess in the tool and snap into place. Squared handle makes it easy to grip and manipulate.
