Great pin with a dap of red paint.
The pin is easy to install. I added a bit of red paint to mine.
No Reason Not To
I installed this at the same time as all other available springs and trigger because there's really no reason not to. Now, I have the factory pin as a back-up just case I lose this one, and this pin just adds that little bit of extra reliability for such a small price in money and effort.
Solid piece. Much better fit than OEM
great replacement for the stock pin
The stock takedown pin kept working its way loose and was hard to get back in. I read about the MCARBO pin on a couple of Ruger forum posts and when I took a look at it on their website, it definitely seemed like a better design, so I ordered one. It was much easier to put in than the stock one and did not come loose when I took it back to the range and put another 100+ rounds through it. Thanks MCARBO!
Heavy Duty Take Down Pin
This pin is easy to remove and install. It should last a lot longer than the stock pin.
Very nice quality
A review posted by someone else on 7/18/23 said that while removing the Mcarbo takedown pin, the black plastic frame of their gun (surrounding the pin) flexed outward. As the owner of a new LCP Max, I can confirm that the flexing happens during removal. The Mcarbo takedown pin is "latched" onto the silver wire inside of the frame and during removal, the silver wire pushes against the black plastic frame. To counteract the flexing during pin removal, just use two fingers to aggressively push down against the black plastic frame area surrounding the pin.
The Mcarbo pin is very well designed and machined. I wish the rest of my LCP Max was that well machined !
Maybe it’s an unnecessary upgrade, but I installed these in my LCP II as well as my LCP Max. Neither presents any issues.
Ruger LCP Max heavy duty take down pin.
We own 2 LCP Max pistols (wife and me). I installed every M*CARBO upgrade available. Take down pin was last item.
Ordered 2 pins and USPS "lost" the package. Yes, really. Tracking said it was delivered to my mailbox with a date and time. It wasn't. Checked neighbors and not there. Went to PO and talked with supervisor who actually pulled up digital image of package. Said they'd get back to me via cell phone. 4 days later they did. Package "lost" very sorry"...indeed.
I could file online claim. Screw them. I called M*CARBO customer assistance. Said no problem "we will send you another 2 pins no charge". Got them in 3 days via USPS. Love you guys. New pins are great. Heck, everything from them has been great! Have bought A LOT of their stuff. Maxed out new Keltec M*CARBO SUB2K and "loaded up" PMR30 I sent in for full workover and then bought optic mount the first day they were available. Also upgraded my Hellcat OSP with everything available. Great company. Great service. Great products. Customer for life.
Is there a reason why there is a slot in the end of this take down pin? Also I see they are currently back ordered, is there going to be a design update to the new batch of pins? Thank you for your time.
The slot helps to index the divot in the pin toward the retainer spring. We are doing some light design tweaks and will have it in stock again shortly.

When do you think you will have the take down pins back in stock for Ruger LCP max 380. Thanks B. Stanley
We are working on getting them pushed back out ASAP.
Will this fit the LCP that is not the Max?
If do not have a MAX, we have one for the LCP 1 and 2 you can order from our website.
