Leave it on as a conversation starter when you go to the range. Use it to educate people.

Ahhh, so you finally got it back, good! If it is a plastic sticker, use a hair dryer to warm it, softening the adhesive, and peel it off. If it is paper, you should be able to spray it with WD-40, soak it, which will dissolve the adhesive. Finish removing any residual adhesive with WD-40.

Did you get your magazines and M855 ammo back? What did the @$$holes say when they found out M855 is perfectly legal for civilian ownership? LOL!

Leave it! It's cool.

3ed. You will find sheeple at the range also. People must be made aware. also, you think a burglar might think twice about taking it? SSD

I also got my mags back, but I seem to be missing two rounds of Q3131A. Thanks and take care guys.

seems like a small price to pay for yore rifle back. and ill 4th the idea about keeping it on, when people hear about this incident they might even write some letters, or make some phone calls. it could indirectly benefit our side.

I'll trade you a Colt A2 buttstock for it, if you ever want to remove it. That's a trophy. You were victorious.

Another vote for leaving it on. Or just buy another stock and frame the old one in a shadow box along with some of the paper work/news clipping, couple rounds of the ammo etc. Make nice display for the gun room...

KEEP IT ON AND POST A PIC.

I would definately leave it on.

keep it as a been here done that kinda thing....if yo uod remove it use lighter fluid the kind for zippos...used bookstore use it as it evaporates quickley and removes the sticker

As long as you are going to replace the stock, I'd replace the barrel, too. So much for the "fingerprint!" FITTER out [:(!]
Link Posted: 12/23/2001 5:56:57 PM EDT
I told you they were fondling it. Two rounds missing.... probably have the fired bullets on file as well as scans of the fired case heads. "for the safety of the children" I'd keep the sticker on Robert

Either of two products: WD-40 or "GOOF OFF". I buy the latter at a hardware store. It smells like lighter fluid.

Try "Goo Gone", it is a citrus oil based product that removes just about any kind of adhesive or sticker. I use it all the time and have never had it leave any kind of dis-coloration or mark. You can buy it at any grocery store in the cleaning supplies section. And if you like oranges, it even smells good. I have even used it to remove bugs and tar from my vehicles, no harm to the paint at all. HTH

I though ony hippies used that stuff to clean their water bongs. I have only seen it for sale in head shops around here. [;)] Add me to the 'leave the sticker on' crowd.
Link Posted: 12/24/2001 4:44:30 AM EDT
Replace the stock with a new one. It has been tainted... LOL
Link Posted: 12/24/2001 5:24:30 AM EDT
Maybe the 2002 LEGP AR-15 could have an evidence sticker on the buttstock in memory of oneshot1kills run in with the law.
Link Posted: 12/24/2001 5:29:54 AM EDT
another vote for leaving it on! i would hang it in the rear window of my pickup truck and park it in front of the police station every single day!
