Snug take down pins

I got my new LE 6920 and love the gun. The pins are very snug. I oiled them but they are still very tight. What would you push them through with? I don't want to use metal. I was thinking of a wood dowel. Would that be okay?

Ballpoint pens work great. So do Glock punches, sticks, screwdrivers, knife points (at least enough to get a good grip on the other side of the pin) and many other pointy things.

I use my middle finger knuckle and pop it hard. Starting with the pin closest to the barrel, then the back pin closest to the stock. Even on new tight pins they'll pop out and after doing that a few times your knuckle will no longer notice it. LOL

You can use the tip of a 5.56 cartridge to push the take-down and pivot pins, adjust the front sight post, and field strip the BCG.

Just don't found that round afterwards if it causes bullet setback. Some pins can be that tough at first. It'll work in.

Oddly enough, I find my Glock tool works very well now. I was worried more about marring the finish but these things are tougher than they appear.

I like 'em tight. It helps to push down on the upper sometimes.

Find something to watch on TV and sit there and move the pins back and forth, this will free them up some, you can also integrate the pins into your dry fire break in if it's a new rifle, dry fire, rear pin, dry fire, front pin repeat 200 to 300 times and you'll see a big diffrence

Good idea. I have dry fired everything in my house to smithereens so that is not a problem at all.

Personally I like them tight. The looser they get, the looser the fit between your upper an lower. I am not obsessed with a tight fitting upper and lower, but if I have one I wouldn't trade it for a loose one.

A rolled up piece of very fine sandpaper/emerycloth lightly applied to the upper pin holes will speed up the break in. JMHO.

I wouldn't do anything to them. They're going to loosen up on their own with use.
