HF-601 is a collaboration between Hodge Defense Systems and Forward Controls Design. HF-601 is based on FCD PF-040 pins, with Jim’s input on what he wants on HDSI ARs. Like PF-040, they’re 17-4 stainless steel, precision billet machined on Swiss machines with high degrees of precision, and very tight tolerances, and black nitride treated.

HF-601 pins are 0.040″ longer than TDP take down and pivot pins, another feature shared with FCD PF-040 pins. Jim has a soft spot for the Colt 601, thus HF-601 pins have taken on many of the Colt 601 pivot and take down pin cues. The dimples on both sides of the take down pin and left side of the pivot pin, even the slight ring on the left side of the take down pin tip is faithfully reproduced.

The only exception is the pivot pin, whereas on the Colt 601, the right side pin head is flat, it is flat on the HF-601.

HF-601 pins diameter adheres to TDP dimensions and tolerances, 0.2485 +0.000/-0.005.

  1. 2005lexwin (verified owner)

    These pins are far and above the best in the industry. The extra .04 in length really does make all the difference in the world. Usability is at its best with these and the fit and finish is outstanding.

  2. Corbin Krueger (verified owner)

    I’ve only used milspec pins and these are so much nicer and cleaner looking.

  3. Ryan Praud (verified owner)

    Simple, clean, that little extra you need.

  4. Raymond Thomas (verified owner)

    Very sleek and smooth pins. Well machined with a slick finish. Comparing them side by side I like these a ton more than my radian pins. Overall if you’re going to drop 30 bones on takedown pins they’re worth it.

  5. Dillon Smith (verified owner)

    I didn’t know takedown pins could be so sexy.
