So I was thinking it might be wise to get around to taking a look at the reciol spring in the but stock on my L1A1. The problem is I can't seem to figure out how to get it out. Is there some trick?
The first thing I did was unscrew the screw on the rear of the stock. Though the hole I can see where the recoil spring is. The problem is with only that screw removed the whole is to small to get the whole the reciol spring removal tool in there. I can get the skinny part in but not the rest.
So I figured I would take off the put pad. You can in theory change those out for different lengths of pull. I say in theory becasue I can't get mine off...
Ok so I figured perhaps if I undo that one screw and the one that connects the but to the reciver is can take off the whole but stock then get to the reciol spring.
No such luck even with those two screws off I can get this figured out. So I figure at this point I am missing something so I should ask before I break something.
