I take it you have been trying to turn the castle nut and it hasn't budged. The nut may have been staked into place. If so, you'll need to locate where the plate was upset and file it back.

Do you have the 3-prong wrench? If not get it, it probably won't budge otherwise. If you do it maybe loctited or staked. Apply enough torque and the loctite will breakfree.

i think it has stakes, in detail, can someone explain what to do?>

Why not call the manufacturer? They can tell you EXACTLY how it is put on and can give you better suggestions on how to remove it.

If you have a Dremel you could try this method,took me 10 min to get the bugger off.Hope this helps.

Which manufactures staked their CAR stocks like this?

Also, keep your parts as I have one of these fake CAR stocks that I received with my AR-47 and I dissassembled the parts by removing the allen head bolt and I beleive that it may be reusable with a new CAR buffer and the appropriate hardware.... Still may be cheaper to buy a new stock, but worth the try!

I know colt stakes them as i have one with 3 stakes on the castle nut on the opposite side of the notches for using the tele wrench on. Here is a little better pic to see it up close.

I just picked up a DPMS 16" carbine with pinned collapsible stock.
The nut has just 1 pin hole for the spanner wrench, and is not staked,
but it won't budge. I even bent my pin type spanner wrench!
What now?

I have a Bushmaster M-faux, and I am curious if they have staked their stocks. If they have where do I dremmel? Thanks for any help guys.

Oops, misread the question. Not sure if BM actually stakes their M4gery stock on post-ban versions...

They are staked. I just tried to get mine off and it's a no-go. I don't have a Dremel (what's wrong with me?), so what can I do?

Yeah, you're right. I misunderstood the stake reliefs on the castle nut for the actual stakes on the retainer plate. They're not staked, but I can't get the castle nut to budge with the screwdriver + hammer trick. *sigh* I guess I have to wait for my wrench to arrive from Brownell's.

Just hit it harder.

I just used my strap wrench to remove the castle nut on my Bushy.
Link Posted: 9/12/2004 12:09:29 PM EST
Shit. The 4 position stock I bought at the funshow is a one postion. It wont stay locked at any point but full forward. Anyone know a way too adjust the thing so it sticks?

Try backing off the nut on the release a thread or 2.

BTDT.

I had to remove a roll pin to adjust the screw. Now there's no way I'm gonna get that pin back in, the holes dont line up at all.

Will it lock in the position you desire now?

Yep.

I'd degrease the end of the screw and nut now and blue loctite it.

The screw is drilled wrong or something is off.

By the way thanks for all the help Danny. I got a paper clip in the whole the twisted the screw in to jam it and then cut it off. JB weld will cover the holes and ensure the clip stays put.
Just so y'all know, I did all this with the stock in my lap and not on a rifle.

I'm too impatient to wait for the BBT to bring my wrench. I ran to Sears and got a strap wrench, but the bugger just slips on the nut. How did you get it to go?

My strap wrench is only about a 1/2 in wide. I tightened it up as tight as I could, and it popped and freed up.
