Im trying to install my new sling and i need to get my stock off (RRA entry tactical w/ collapsible stock)... Yes i am a newbie, and yes this is my first ar, so plz be nice! lol ...thanks

Pull the latch down instead of pushing it in, the stock will slide off the back of the buffer tube.

If you want to remove the buffer tube you have to back off the nut that is against the reciever, then unscrew the buffer tube. Do this after removing the buffer and spring. Also be careful when you take out the tube, as there are two springs to deal with.

Look to the upper right of the screen

See the button marked 'INFORMATION'
Click it

Find the entry 'Manuals & Downloads' (should be near the bottom of the menul)
Select it.

Find the manual entitled "Unit and Direct Support Maintenance Manual" it's TM should end in -23&P
Click on it and download it.

Turn to Chapter 3 - complete step by step instruction with pictures can be found there. I HIGHLY recommend you get a telestock wrench for this job - preferably the one with 3 lugs rather than the $5 single lug version.

Edited to Add Doh! I thought you wanted to remove the entire stock to put on a single point sling plate. If all you need to do is remove the plastic part follow 80s instructions above.

"...there are two springs to deal with."

Yup, as in they will go screaming across the room if you're not ready for 'em!

hmm... i tried pulling down on the lever but its not working, ill keep trying
Link Posted: 3/9/2006 7:38:16 AM EDT
It's not a post ban stock is it?
Link Posted: 3/9/2006 7:40:24 AM EDT
no... i dont think... i just bought it like 2 weeks ago, it was brand new
Link Posted: 3/9/2006 7:41:03 AM EDT
can someone give me a little more specific instructions, that manual under the info tab wasnt helpful at all
Link Posted: 3/9/2006 7:42:33 AM EDT
Okay do you want to take off the whole stock and buffer tube or just the stock?
Link Posted: 3/9/2006 7:43:10 AM EDT
Well im trying to instal a car burnsed loop...so what do i need to take off?
Link Posted: 3/9/2006 7:45:04 AM EDT
Don't know exactly what that piece of gear entails. You can't pull the adjusting latch down on your stock?
Link Posted: 3/9/2006 7:46:03 AM EDT
it will slide down, but barley, like a few centimeters maybe, not much tho
Link Posted: 3/9/2006 7:47:06 AM EDT
Okay..I got it off !!
Link Posted: 3/9/2006 7:47:18 AM EDT
You have to really overcome the spring pressure and slide it off the back. Does the stock collapse and extend fine?

here is what tag's website says you have to do to install this thing :

Link Posted: 3/9/2006 7:48:16 AM EDT
I hope you don't have to take off the tube, we could be here all day.
Link Posted: 3/9/2006 7:49:25 AM EDT

Pull down all the way till it physically can go any further. Remember, you are pulling the tip of the lever AWAY from the stock.
Link Posted: 3/9/2006 7:50:01 AM EDT
yeah im pretty sure you do... i got the stock off tho, now just to get the tube off
Link Posted: 3/9/2006 7:51:07 AM EDT
what is the "ring nut" it says to loosen that?
Link Posted: 3/9/2006 7:52:20 AM EDT
Use some channel locks with something to pad the nut with so you don't mar the finish,
Link Posted: 3/9/2006 7:53:49 AM EDT
So what do i do just basically twist the tube?? and it will just unscrew? that it?
Link Posted: 3/9/2006 7:55:08 AM EDT
No, the nut that is on the tube next to the reciever!
Link Posted: 3/9/2006 7:57:56 AM EDT
OIc.. i might just wait and get my friend to do this, he knows more about it than i do...because im not seeing any nut on the tube

Have you shot this rifle? You might want to learn a little more about it before you start adding parts and modifying it. Just use a 2 point GI sling for now.

This is better than cable!!!

Nothing like reading two guys trying to strip apart a rifle over the internet..

Pretty sure I saw this same situation on a SNL scit..

Too far for me to help you. Either post a picture or I suggest you let your friend help you.

Don't let getting in a rush lead to damaging your rifle.

Keep safe.

As my Dad used to say.... "looks like 2 monkeys trying to **** a football.

ti_27, Be patient, either wait for your friend or get a manual. Come to think of it, you should have a manual anyway. There are plenty available on this site.

Link Posted: 3/9/2006 1:47:27 PM EDT
Good luck, on the five RRA rifles I either have or have worked on in the Department, 3 where red loctited down so you could not get the nut off the receiver extension. Heat, and lots of it is your friend at this point.
