Could someone please advise of an AR-15 gunsmith in the DFW area? Thanks in advance.

Where in DFW? There are a lot of us that have the tools to help you out. Do you already have the sling plate?

I live in Lewisville. I already have the stock and the sling plate. I am not sure what tools I would need to complete the exchange or exactly how to do it. If anyone could advise or direct me to the correct link for changing out collapsible stocks I would greatly appreciate it.

shoot me an email. If you dont mind driving to Plano/Frisco border area (by Stonebriar Mall) I can dig up my stock wrench and we can go to town. Should be able to knock that out quickly.

Had I been thinking I would have told you to bring it the Mesquite Gunshow, I could have knocked it out for you in a couple of minutes. Worse case bring it to Market Hall.

We got the stock changed, but it was definitely more than a "couple-minutes" job, which I had initially thought it would be as well. I have never seen a receiver end plate staked to the castle nut as well as this one was, and it took us a while to get it apart. Thereafter, the new VLTOR stock went right on, and now the new castle nut just needs to be properly tightened. Anyone got a stock wrench (we broke mine)?

This is what separates the amateurs from the professionals.

do you really need one? Let me know.

Anybody know someone who can flute a barrel in the DFW area? I might need to install a FF and a flip up gas block at the same time as well.
