    Take a screw driver and pry it apart while sliding it on. It looks like someone tried forcing it on making the problem worse.

    How often do you adjust your stock?

    great point.....but honestly if he has a milspec stock and commercial tube, I don't you'd even be able to get it on the tube.

    My MOE stocks were tight ,but will wear in . It keeps them from rattling . Your grip on the other hand is jacked up. Call magpul they will take care of it quickly .

    My solution was similar, my grip was unbelievably tight so I took a fine file and barely took the edges off and then slowly worked it on with a flat head. It's a snug fit but that's how I prefer it anyways.

    Thanks for the advice guys. Got it on kinda disappointed in magpul but u guess it's better than having it rattle or anything.
    Stock is a little easier to move now that I have assembled the lower and have a bit if leverage.

    Used the flat head like suggested and played around with it and it went on after a while.

    The tube is milspec I hope, I ordered milspec from PSA and the back of the receiver extension is flat not slanted like commercial ones.
