AG NTSA!!!!!!!!!!

That depends. Some manufacturers use a full length tube and a rifle buffer. Some use a car buffer and a collapsable tube that is pinned in place.

Find out and get back to us.

I'm pretty sure the Bushmaster ones are actual telestocks pinned open. So I'll just be removing my pins so I don't have to buy another.

I know the DPMS ones are pinned and glued.....glued with some kind of super natural strength epoxy from hell......

Depends. Some are just cosmetic look alikes. Some are pinned. Some are glued. Just buy one, they are cheap enough compared to just about every other part of the firearm.

Just get a new one. They only run about $70. But to answer your question, it depends. Lots of manufacturers use a full lenght buffer tube and would make it impossible to make collapsable.

You think it was funny???? well I do too now...but then...after about 6 solid hours of working on that friggin glue....and then chisel......and then BFH.......I scooped up all the little pieces, deposited them in the round file and and put a spare colt stock I had on the rifle.......


Please use my experience to your better mental health.......just buy a new freakin stock......

Epoxy can usually be softened with heat - which makes removal quite easy. However, like most people have posted, many use full length buffer tubes. Just buy a new one and donate the old one to someone in a never-ending-AWB state.

NO, they are full length, it takes ALOT of shit to modify it. It's not worth the time...

RRA 2001 LEGP stock is a full length buffer tube with no slots drilled out of the buffer tube, and a hex bolt and 2 pins holding the rear of the stock on.

The pins and the bolt came out pretty easy, but the buffer tube is worthless.

I was thinking about using the stock on another collapsable stock I had, but it needed at least one more hole drilled in it, and it wasn't worth the effort.

Sell it to folks in CA and other equally-screwed States.

My bushmaster was not a pinned telestock, it had a full-length buffer tube.

The plastic of the stock will melt long before the epoxy softens up....

It depends on what kind of stock you have. the Colt stocks will work with some effort. Check out the "Build it yourself" forum

Here's a Colt unit

here's another

The Bushmaster fake telstock is a fake telstock. It is based on a full length buffer tube. The pins are placed into blind holes that make them difficult to get out but it can be done. Don't waste your time. You can not make this one into a real telstock.

I always thought that "fixed telestocks" were gay.
They're like bad hair pieces for your rifle.
They're dishonest.

Take it off and smash it with a hammer.
Kill it.

Tapco had them for about 30 bucks yesterday. Some of the fixed stocks had no pin and were glued together with some kind of hellish substance that most likely would destroy the stock if you tried to dig it out.

I prefer a regular stock anyway. Telestocks are not comfortable to shoot with and they have no compartment for the cleaning kit, secret decoder ring, pretzels, etc.
