How do I take the sliding buttstock off of the buffer tube???

It’s pretty easy, flip the rifle over (latch facing up) lift UP on the forward (portion closest to the receiver) of the stock latch and slide the stock off the back.

Cool, thanks, I got it.

Ive got the old style telescoping stock, Can I just buy the new-style butt stock? just the plastic part, since I already have a CAR buffer tube.

I would expect it would be alot cheaper, anyone know where to get one??

Yes, you can just get the stock and slide it on. Check around, I think Pete in NH on the exchange forum has them, or you can try RRA. Cavalry Arms has just the stocks but in the older CAR style.

Couldnt find them at the RRA websight, I guess Ill have to email Pete.

Just a note of caution. Colt stocks have a different diameter tube than the aftermarket stocks, so if you have a Colt, you'll have to go to them for a replacement. All the aftermarket jobs I've seen seem to be the same diameter tubes however.

If you do find a source for spare pieces, please post it, along w/ the price. I've been considering a project that would use a stock piece.
