Default screw stakes

finally got the ati stock to fit after a lot of filing and dremel time. looking good now. next project is to install smaller gas bushing. that is, after I figure out the best way to de-stake the screws. any suggestions appreciated. wouldn't be much of a problem if they weren't so small. onward and upward.......

Default will help you. Just use a 9/64" Allen wrench and break them loose one at a time. It'll make a lot of popping noise and an occasional spark may jump out, but unless the factory cross threaded them (it happens) they'll come out easier than you may think.
