I want to remove my stock with a special tool?

Wrap it with a rag and use a channel lock type pliers. Just be very careful or else you will leave marks on it. Ideally you could use a strap wrench if you don't have the castle nut wrench.

Do you have the one with the square notches? Use a brass punch and tap it loose. It loosens by rotating it counter clockwise when looking at it from the butt of your stock (barrel pointed away from your face).
It tightens the opposite way.

ETA: The strap wrench is a safer way to go. I would just get the ProMag tool. It's cheap but it works fine for me.

Strap wrench would work

They pretty much covered it all. If you're feeling daring you can use a screw, a hammer and gentle pressure.

Can't recommend the Channel Lock way. Too much crushing pressure is brought to bear.

I used a hammer and a hatchet....kinda f'ed up the nut, but it still works....oh well....just balance the blade of the hatchet on the square notch and swing at it with the hammer....oh yeah- be careful (fingers can get in the way, so don't miss
