Swapping Out a Para Stock....

I want to remove my DSA Para stock & replace it with an ACR stock.

I have the ACR Stock & required bolt.

Anyone have pics or a video to include any tools needed?

TIA

You need an allen wrench and a big ass screw driver for the dsa stock,,,hollow ground and not standard wedge shape preferably..Otherwise it's pretty strait forward, just remember to take the allen lock screw out thats inside before turning to the back end slotted bolt.
No idea on the ACR,,but assume its similar.

Thank you for the guidance yovinny.

I had to research what a hollow ground screwdriver was. I own & have used them, but didn't know their name.

Is placing the lower in a vice recommended or is this something I should be able to do with it free?

Thanks again!

You can put it in a vise to hold it. I have wooden inserts on each of my vise jaws and then I would wrap the lower in a towel or cloth so you don't mar it in the vise.
