I got a Vltor Emod stock going on to my bushmaster buffer tube.  

It was a tight fit going on and I think i pushed it a little too much.  Now if won't slid at all.

I was pretty sure they were the same size (both mil or both commercial)

but I guess I am wrong.

Its Chilling in the freezer now, hopefully the metal tube will contract a little more than the plastic stock and I can separate it.  

Any other tips for getting them apart?

I believe that Vltor stocks are all mil-spec, and Bushmaster uses commercial buffer tubes.

Keeping working on it.  It will come off.  Maybe have someone else hold the rifle, while you pull on the stock.  Make sure you have a soft place to fall back on.

yeah I just got it back off.

What a pain in the Buttacle area.

Chilled it in the freezer for 15 min,

Then opened up the trap door on the back of the emod where the butt pad is, and used a dowel to tap it out.

I least I get to buy more stuff now..
