ar15 solid stock removal

Can anyone give me any tips on how to remove the solid stock on my AR?

I removed the spring and plunger but I cannot reach the locking nut (because the stock is blocking the way) w/the ar wrench like on a collap. stock and dont really know what to do next...I looked online but could only find exploded views of ARs and they didnt really help much.

Thanks

-Chris

I don't have a disassembly manual but on my assembly manual, it looks like the top buttstock screw will remove the buttstock from the buffer tube.

I good book to get is The AR-15 Complete Assembly Guide along with the The AR-15 Complete Owner's Guide both by Walt Kuleck.

Hope this helps.

Unscrew top screw on butt of stock. Stock will slide off. Use wrench to remove buffer tube. PM if you need further help.

I've been having buttstock issues as well so I feel your pain. My prob is different but it sucks just as much.

They loctite the buffer tube in place on most ARs, so you will need to use a wrench (on the end of the tube) or a vise to get it off. I locked the end of the tube in a vise and twisted the receiver.
