Springfield Model 15 takedown screw
I was taking my Springfield Model 15 22 apart to clean it up and when I unscrewed the takedown screw the barrel and the sear came off like it should but the actual screw from the inside of the stock has some type of a metal spacer or bushing of some type that is not easily held on to by any tool. I have been working at it for a while and still cannot figure out why the screw will not come out of there. Is there a trick to removing the screw from that spacer and from the stock.
What is that part in the stock called ?
Is there a trick in taking it apart ?
I have a picture of it from the inside of the stock.
I am tearing up the takedown screw head trying to un screw it. I would just cut it off and replace it but replacement parts for this model do not even mention a spacer inside the stock that the screw goes into.
