View Full Version : A2 buttstock removal?

December 27, 2005, 03:46 PM
Trying to get the standard A2 stock off my AR but cannot get the screw at the top rear of the stock to turn. Am close to stripping it, in fact.

I've tried PowerBlaster (like WD40), and a little heat, but it will budge.

Any suggestions?

When ever I get one of those &*$&^ $ $( screws I take an old screw driver
heat it cheery red and place it in the screw head this transfers the heat to the screw also try transmission fluid it may take several time but it will loosen

The screw slots are also pretty wide. File an old large driver down until it fills the slot tightly.

Heating the driver is good and I wouldn't hesitate to put the buttplate in some hot water.

Try leaving it vertical all night with tons of WD40 impregnated and then go for it with a big screwdriver that fits perfectly; you may end up unscrewing the return spring tube though!
