Glad PSA had the RE kit in stock, Poltax, and it is milspec. I got one a couple months ago and it really is a bargain.

It is a DD M4V5 mid-length. It came with it installed and no spare.

Up to you of course but I'd remove the o ring myself. From that upper. Of course as DD and see what they say.

Finally recd the buffer tube kit from PSA. They must be backed up in shipments.

Ok, I need a little direction on installing the STR Stock. I am normally ok with doing my own work, but I guess I am getting a little confused. I did all that the instructions said to do. However, I can not seem to get the pin to drop any further to slide the stock on the tube. I have used the included practice bullet and only wound up breaking the end off. I have also tried to use a metal punch that would fit in the hole. I can not seem to get the pin to drop any further to slide on the stock. What am I doing wrong. Do I really need to apply some serious pressure or am I just not holding my mouth right. LOL

Set the stock on a solid surface with the receiver extension partially in the stock (as far as it will go for now w/ the rifle pointed straight up toward the ceiling). Take a flat head screwdriver and depress the pin toward the locking mechanism. Using the lever on the right of the first picture below will loer the pin so it's easier to get ahold of. The weight of the firearm will cause it to fall into the stock. Done.

Mike...thank you, worked like a charm. When I was looking this over, I had actually thought about putting a screwdriver on the pin and prying down. But was a bit nervous. Thank you again.

Hopefully I will have both of these together this weekend.
