New Bushy with LE buttstock and I can't get the screws out (so I can add an adjustable butt plate). Any tricks to getting the screws out? Thanks in advance.

Aw c'mon, help a stupid newb out. Are the screws in the stock reverse threaded or something? I don't want to booger them up my first night.

I've heard that Bushmaster red loc-tites the screws. It may take allot of torque.

a REALLY big screwdriver, to give you alotta torque. If you can get our hands on one. a big torque wrench with a screw driver socket. I actually jimmy rigged one with an old 3/8 socket and a bit from an electric screw driver. A power driver may work, but it may to hard to cortrol causing you to strip/scratch the buttstock.
