View Full Version : How can I remove the Bipod on my STG
October 03, 2004, 14:48
I have been blasting and parking all weekend. I have almost finished my STG, all but the barrel and bipod assembly. The question is how can I remove the bipod screws without ordering the special tool from DSA and without ruining the screw and caps? Any pointers will greatly be appreciated.

Does it have "castle" nuts? If it does........
If you do a search for castle nuts, you will get a lot of information.
But basically you can make a tool to remove them from a screwdriver (wide blade) or a socket. You just dremel to fit. It helps to be able to heat the nuts as they will have a ton of grease and grime and crude glueing them together.

You can use a punch and hammer to unscrew the castle nuts. Some require soaking in Kroll or similar first and some even need some heat applied.

they are not that tough to remove... a little determination is all you need...

The screw driver trick works magnificently! Heat 'em up (the nuts) a little but not too much. The screw driver that I used had a square shank from the blade to the handle so I could put a wrench down closer to the blade. I was surprised at how good it worked.

Make a tool, I dremeled the end of a nut driver, heat the nut with a propane torch till its smokin pretty good. I needed a Vise-grip on the driver to break it loose.

Once you have removed it and re-installed it, you might think of acquiring the Steyr combo tool. It is handy and compact, and works very well for removing and re-installing the bipod once you have eliminated the adhesive effect of 40 year old grease.
