I admit, I'm new to AR's so bear with me. I'm trying to put a GGG style rear sling mount on my rifle and I need to remove the CAR style buttstock to put it in place. I picked up a spanner wrench at the gun show this weekend, but that damn retaining nut is TIGHT!

OR is it?

Is there some miniscule pin that I've overlooked or do I need to just muscle that retaining nut off of there?

Is it a Colt, if so it might be staked in place. How are you holding the receiver?

A good way in liu of a good vise is to seat or get someone who wont mind to seat on it. Then remove the nut while holding the buffer tube.

As usual YMMV and go steady.

Someone may have given it a dose of loctite and hit the spanner a few times to tighten it up, since they have been known to shoot loose from time to time.

If all else fails, break out the BFH. It's not pinned in place, it just tight or staked (which you should be able to see).
