What do you guys need help with? They are just tight sometimes. Remove the old stock/screw/car/castle nuts... so all that is left is the buffer tube screwed into the receiver. It is standard threads. Sometimes they are tight, so you might have to put the receiver in a vise (careful.... not too tight and protect it from being scratched) and then unscrew the tube, and dont be afraid to put some muscle in it.

Steps to remove an A1 or A2 fixed stock and receiver extension, once the upper and lower receivers are separated:

1. Unscrew the buttstock retaining screw, on top rear of the buttstock. Use the right size bit in your screwdriver. If it won't budge, it's locktited, you need to apply heat. I suggest using the clean tip of a soldering iron to melt the locktite.

2. At the buttstock comes straight off to the rear, take care to catch the detent spring from the right-hand side of the receiver.

3. Remove the buffer and spring out the front of the receiver extension by depressing the buffer retainer detent.

4. Using the right size crescent wrench or an adjustable wrench on the nut-shaped nub on the rear, inscrew the receiver extension tube. Alternatively, you can put the nub flats in a vice and twist the pistol grip the correct direction.

If it won't budge, apply moderate heat from a heat gun.
