chriskc04 Posted July 31, 2011 Share Posted July 31, 2011 I think I might have a good one here. A few months ago, I installed an aftermarket stock on my M4. It attaches by screwing into a plug at the end of the recoil spring tube. Naturally, when installing it, I used some loctite and cranked it down a bit. Last week, I removed said screw to install a new sling plate between the stock and reciever. When I had backed the screw out, the plug (which is threaded into the end of the tube) and the recoil spring itself came out instead! I was left with the screw stuck in the plug with the stock in the middle. Long story short, to separate them, I put some MORE loctite in the recoil tube, screwed the plug in, and let it set. SO, now the plug is back in the tube, the screw is free from the stock, but the spring is still not inside. I need to somehow get it out, get the spring in, and the whole assembly back together. I couldn't find a screwdriver large enough to fit into the two notches, so I tried making one out of a 3/4" chisel. No, it didn't work. I even tried putting a socket and ratchet on the end. It keeps slipping out. Hopefully I didn't damage anything on the Benelli. There's also a but nut holding the whole thing onto the receiver... SO, anyone seen anything like this before? Any ideas? I'm not very mechanically inclined, so any help or guidance would be GREATLY appreciated! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
