Trying to remove the buttstock from an L1A1.
Stock is the pebble grain plastic with a crappy shade of green on the buttcap end of it you green stock guys would die for.
I have removed the buggered up screw that was all I had to do to remove the buttcap.
No go. Tried prying the butt cap off using spots where it had obviously been tried before. Are these glued on or something. I'm assuming under this is the usual buttstock retainer.

Mine's a wood buttstock but I would guess it's the same - two screws - one at the bottom that also holds the rear sling swivel in place, and one at the top. The buttcap can sometimes be on there pretty tight, not to mention 40+ years worth of gunk "glueing" it in place.
If yours has a trapdoor sometimes you can open the door and wedge a screwdriver or something in under the cap that way, so you don't ding anything visible...

I just discovered the "secret" buttplug that once removed allows access to the buttstock screw. Stock is off.
Should have figured something like that.

I don't think I want to know about your "secret buttplug" - but I'm glad you got the thing off...... :p

"Do we have clearance, Clarence?"
"What's the vector, Victor?"

Just make sure when you reinstall the buttplug, that it is properly balanced.
An improperly balanced buttplug could vibrate, and a vibrating buttplug could play havoc with accuracy. :eek:
(Note: The above is theoretical only, as I own neither an L1A1 or a buttplug.) :D

Knock it off you guys...I'm freakin' dying here!!! You all forgot to mention that the Buttplug should be properly lubed so it doesn't wedge itself in when inserting it.

You guys sure know alot about those buttplugs. :confused:

The guys at work once gave, as a gag wedding gift, a new genuine electric buttplug. The guy made the mistake of refusing to open it until the reception. At first he was pleased, thinking it was an electric massager,
once he realized what it was he turned ten shades of red!! I sometimes wonder if that contributed to his divorce. :D
