I have a preban 94 CAR, need the spanner wrench to tighten the stock back down but don't know which one to get, can anyone help?

There are two kinds of receiver extension nuts. One type simply has a small hole for the wrench tooth to engage, while the other (arguably better) type has the larger slots, commonly referred to as a castle nut.

You need to determine what kind of nut you have first.

It has two round holes and some angled slots on the stock side edge.

Looks like you need the cheap RRA 3 tooth spanner.

Top one!


Yours is also staked in several spots so should be well supported in a vise mag block(like this).

I only have two holes though, this has three pegs.

You need the old style wrench. The "angled slots" you are describing are for staking the nut in place. If they are on the outside, away from the receiver, the nut is on backwards.




Picture from Bravo Company, hope Paul doesn't mind.

Bravo Company has them on backorder, is there another sponsor on the site that has them to order from?

Assuming you have a castle nut, I really suggest you get the RRA version...


Eagle Firearms has them in stock (according to their website) for $6 + shipping.

This is mine. It's also the way I got it. Like I said, it has two round holes in it, one is pictured, the other is 180' on the other side. The notches on the left are angled so they don't go all the way through.

Your picture doesn't work.

But it sounds like you have the older style but with two holes. Use the wrench STG77 pictured.

Here's Rob's extension nut:



Yes, you need the wrench STG77 pictured. And the little notches along the edge go against the plate so you can stake it into place, if you want.
