    I'm looking to send out youth guns out to have LOP adjusters put on. Does anyone have any experienced removing the stock from a BPS trap? The bolt has a slotted head but that thing is on there to stay. Any recommendations?

    It is slotted but it should also be a hex nut. You may need a thin wall socket. On a Beretta I had to use a tiny torch and focus the heat on the nut and bingo, it came loose

    I've had to use a wrench on my screwdriver (Snap-on has a hex on the shank just for this) to get them loose the first time. Brownells makes a nice wrench for doing this very chore. It's a shrouded standard screwdriver with a "t" handle.

    I just pulled a stock off a BPS trap and it was a straight slot head crew. It was kind of a PIA as it is hard to get much light down the hole in the stock which made getting good alignment of the driver in the slot tricky. I tried a proper fitting bit from my Wheeler screw driver set first and I snapped that tool. Maybe it was a bad tool or maybe a really tight screw. Then I found an old long shaft large flat screw driver and ground it to fit the screw. After getting the driver in the screw slot I tapped the end if the driver a few times with a 2 lb hammer then the screw broke loose relatively easily. I don't know if the screw was loctite treated at the factory or if someone did it aftermarket but it deffinately had been locktited.

    Good luck and when you do get the factory screw out, replace it with one that has a Torx or hex head.

    Wrap the end of the screw driver with masking tape about an inch from the end. Use enough tape so it is a slip fit in the stock hole. This will keep it centered in the slot. Use a screw driver with a flat sided shaft so you can put a wrench on it for added leverage. HMB

    I concur with the others, mine was really hard to break loose. I had to use a wrench on the drive and even then it was really hard to get loose. Stick with it, that sucker will come out, but it is hard.
