I know this is the newbie-ist of all newbie questions, but I just picked up a new RRA six position collapsible stock and a stock wrench. How do I install it on my Bushy AR. I have an Ace Skeletal on there now. I bought an ambi car sling adapter plate. Thanks. Russ (a very non-mechanical guy).

when i put my vltor stock on my AR to replace the a2 stock, it was easy. just watch out for the spring as you take the buffer tube off.
i don't know if your stock has it but others on this forum have mentioned red lock tite on the buffer tube IIRC. be careful you don't bugger up your lower. even non-mechanical types can do it. if you can assemble a model or bicycle you can do it. get a book and pay attention to directions. i just had a gun rag that had very brief amounts of info and discriptions and it was a piece of cake. i just took my time.

i'm assuming that you have to replace the buffer tube w/ a new one that came w/ your new stock.
and don't forget to use some good gun grease inside the buffer tube. it helps take away the boingggg when you fire.

Thanks. The buffer tube and Ace stock are coming off. The RRA stock has a buffer and spring. I assume the sling adaptor goes closest to the receiver (holding in the spring to the rear take down pin), followed by the nut (castle?) and then the new stock. Here's where I am really confused: I assume I hand tighten the stock first and then snug up the nut. From what I see of the picture of the stock on RRA's website it would appear the "teeth" of the nut go in the direction of the stock. Does any of this sound right?

ARFCOM is a great resource for all kinds of interesting AR information.
