Im trying to get the wooden stock off of my 870 for painting, but I can't tell if its a large allen wrench (5/16th) or a small one.


I know some of you guys must know some tricks, you have swapped out your stocks, so give me an answer.. thanks!

??????? Last one I did, it was a slotted head screw.
WARNING: It's been several years, and possibly Remington has changed it.

Get a flashlight and look down the hole.

It should be a Flat head screw.

But you need the special prupose screwdriver. I think you can only get it from Remington and it costs $187.50.

You need the whole set of armorer tools from brownells to do it right. You can't do anything without the set. Don't ever make a tool by your self or use any tool that hasn't been approved by the manufacturer.

Actually, the only approved method is to send it to the factory for any modifications.

Sorry for the confusion, for some reason I was trying to get the stock off from the inside of the receiver with an allen wrench.



Yeah, well. I got the stock off, and got it all painted, I'll have to get pics so I can show you guys.
