KIDD Threaded Receiver Pins - Size



Log in to see fewer ads
I am trying to change out my trigger group on my Kidd Supergrade (New Version).

Going from their single-stage to their two-stage.

I don't have an allan wrench small enough for this thing.

Anyone know what size I need to get? Also by looking at Kidd's web page, I am guess I need two of whatever size it is? One for each side?

Thanks for any help!

You only need one.

Get one started and ran about half way, then start the other and just snug up. It will draw the other one up . Then check both for tightness. Just barely over snug will do it. To tight will draw in on the side of the receiver, and can put pressure on the side of the trigger group.

Thank you. I knew it was small, lol.

It is a hex, right?

Sorry, diabetic eyes that are half blind.

Sorry to ask more but what size is the takedown screw?

Kidds web site indicates its a 1/8" but that must be the size of the bolt. My 1/8 hex doesn't fit in there.

I gotta get me better set of tools, for sure.

They’re 1.5mm or as another poster said, 1/16”. I use 1/16” Allen screwdrivers now, so I have a pile of the Kidd ones. I recommend locking one of them in place on each pin with blue Loctite, that way the screw will only come loose consistently on the opposite side which I set as the side opposite the charging handle- that way there’s no interference with the Allen wrench.

PM me your shipping addy and I’ll send you a couple, freebies.

Yup, same size as the VBlock screws. IIRC, the Allen socket on the rear tang screw is 1/8”

I never thought of that.
It goes to show that your never to old to learn a new trick.

I never had trouble with interference of the bolt, I only tighten with the short side of the wrench between thumb and fore finger, with the long part in the screw. It keeps me from over doing it. That's the same method I used to use on the action screw before I got a torque wrench.

Well, once you lock one side with Loctite, it’s best to choose a side to insert them from so that you always loosen them from the same side. I used to use the short end in the socket & tighten with the long end, using my index finger only to tighten them and loosen them.

I’m sure those tiny little screw sockets would strip out rather easily if you decided to tighten them “Bubba Tight” lol

Thanks gentlemen, I really appreciate everything.

I got it now.

I got in my wife's toolbox and found these sizes.

Dr. G, I really appreciate the offer but I am good now. Just hard for me to see the sizes and put things into perspective with my eyes.

Again everyone, thanks so much!
