8) OK, need a quickie answer... I am about to remove/attack a castle nut (if that is what they are called) from my pump rifle that came from the factory with a AR adjustable butt stock on it.

My Problem,... I don't have the proper spanner wrench,.. and I can only think of tapping it lose with a plastic punch and hammer, or, wrapping it in a towel and using a channel lock wrench on it.

Thoughts? Recommendations? Warnings? Advise? Experiences?

thanks, 8)

Measure the nut and get the proper wrench.

These makeshift things have a tendency to go sideways on a regular basis.

Yah, I was afraid of that,... seems no matter how much I think I can bubba something, someone always saves me with a dose of common sense.

thanks Flash

on a related note, my castle nut is staked on my factory AR. One of these days i'd like to remove it and put a single point sling plate on. How do you "un-stake" it? grind it down? just turn it harder?

turn it harder, with the right wrench, and a mag block to hold the receiver.

If it was staked poorly, you may even be able to straighten the threads out a bit to save yourself a small amount of elbow grease.

A cheapo strap wrench from the bargain bin at the local HW store will work in a pinch.

Hey Shane,

By "got it", what I meant was, I got the message. I am heading to Tucson today, and after a little research I hope to find out where I can get the proper tool.

Hope that is more clear. 8)

Thanks, good back up idea! I was thinking if I can't find a proper wrench I would try an universal type spanner wrench,... hopefully not though, I hate buggering up the finish on my weapons.

L.,

If you are in the north valley I have the AR multi tool that you can borrow.

Thanks for the offer, guy.
But, brother BOE helped me with a gun shop lead and I picked one up in Tucson yesterday.

The salesman even helped with some suggestions on how to use, without abuse,... 8) . Later today I'll find out if Remington slathers lock-tite on their installations.

Thanks to all !!!
