    I have an older 687el and would like to remove the stock. It may be a stupid question but do you have to remove both screws in the sideplates or just one? Which one front or rear. Thanks for any and all help. Larry Lockhart

    Both. The one in the front goes into the receiver, the rear one goes into the wood. So you won't scratch the wood, or bend the side plate.

    Make sure you use the correct turn screw. One slip you'll devalue the gun by $100.00 :)

    Larry,

    Depending on how the stock is fitted you may need to only remove the rear one on each side.

    I just did this to one of my EELL's and the stock slid right off after removing the stock bolt and the rear two screws.

    As Steve W stated, make absolutly sure about the screwdriver fit. I bought a bit set from Brownells to do the job.
