    I'm not clear on how to remove the stock. Here is a poor image of the butt after removing the pad. I turned the slot lot's of times but doesn't seem to do anything. Whats the trick? Thanks Joe

    Someone has inserted something into the stock. You should see nothing clear up to just short of the receiver tang, where a hex-head bolt should be. The Kreighoff stock removal wrench is a long (12"?) t-handled hex wrench, so that object shouldn't be there.

    Yes I have the hex tool and a schematic. Looks like it might be recoil reduction device. Got to figure out how to remove to.

    I have removed stuck reducers from stocks by shooting the gun minus the pad. Fire it from the hip with nothing behind the hole and I think you'll find the item will slide back far enough to get a bite on it for removal. It might take a couple of shot or so but it has worked for me in the past.

    A rubber mallet will will drive the object out as well as firing the gun will. Just remove the barrel and have at it with your RUBBER mallet - not wood, not leather, but a RUBBER mallet.

    I thought it would be a good idea to write the final chapter on this thread. It turned out that the recoil reducer was stuck so hard that when I fabercated a puller by drill/taping the end the weight and springs can out but the sleeve and end cap stayed in. I sent it off to Philip Gunsmithing and Philip drilled the end cap out and gained acces to the stock bolt. Once the reciever was removed he then tapped out the sleeve via the receiver side. All is well no stock damage. Joe
