View Full Version : Help.....quick question on assembly
March 12, 2008, 21:12
I have one quick question.....why won't my catch lever retaining screw go in flush with the back of the lover receiver like it was when I removed it? It seems to "bottom out" and has a few threads protruding that don't allow the rear butt stock to go on completely? I'm sure this is something simple that I am overlooking. Would you have any idea why this is happening? I can post a pic if needed. This is on an STG58 kit with the original butt stock.

I don't know but while your waiting for the answer use a small drill and make sure there's no build up in the hole.
BTW: Where's EM or Radio,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,this is in the wrong dam place. :biggrin:

It is the small combination set screw/retaining pin just below the retaining catch body on the back of the receiver. CaptMax
I will see if i can see anything such as debris down in that tiny hole.

That or botched threads would be my only thoughts.

As far as I can tell this retaining screw/pin only serves one purpose, to retain the catch release from sliding out of the side of the receiver. I've decided to file away a small amount from it until it sets flush, thus allowing me to install the butt stock. Thanks for the help XHardrock. If I'm wrong about this let me know and I will order another retaining screw and try something else!!!

This seemed to take care of it. As long as the retaining screw/pin goes into the groove on the release latch and keeps it from sliding out I'm good correct? CaptMax

Yup, your correct catch release, glad you saw through my confusion and got it workin.
