Magpul CTR stock stuck on buffer tube....Need to Remove.
 
Last night I attempted to install my new CTR stock on my Stag lower. I checked to make sure (website and measuring) that I order the correct milspec CTR stock for my Stag milspec buffer tube. Well, I was so excited to install the CTR stock that I did not read the instructions about pulling down the metal posts on each side of the locking pin in order to install the CTR stock.

I got the stock about 1/4 of the way on the buffer tube and now it's stuck.



I have since tried to pull down themetal posts on each side of the locking pin, and I'm able to do so, but the stock is not budging.

Could you guys provide me with some assistance?



Thanks.

Unfortunately I would suggest: 1.877.4MAGPUL

Trying anything else MIGHT void any warranty you still have.

Thanks. I'll give them a call.

I usually use a screw driver to depress one side of the metal stud. Make sure the locking mech. isnt engaged then give the stud a nice little pry.

I'd think that would work. I was surprised how hard it was to put the CTR on the first time. It was pretty snug even before the friction lever was closed, and those mounting studs are hard to work by hand.

You're 100% sure the tube is milspec?

Ive never had a problem w/ a CTR or ACS, which have the same set-up, using a screw driver to assist coaxing the studs into compliance.

I too am wondering if the extension is the correct diam. I wonder if its not the locking mech. but its the stock jammed up on the extension. I dont know how tight it would get but it possibly could be tight enough you'll need to put it in a vise.

I thought that it was, but I'm going to double check for sure.

Inspection FAIL on my part. Sure enough, I have a commercial tube. So, on that note.....would anyone like to purchase a fully functional CTR milspec stock?

I believe Magpul will swap it out for a commercial size if you contact CS. Maybe a better move is to get a milspec tube, up to you...


ETA:
I also thought Stag used milspec diameter but guess anything can happen. Might be worth a call to Stag. If they say it's milspec on their site they should make it right.

Once again Ill agree w/ Quentin. Id swap out the extension instead of the stock.
