Super Mag Stock replacement

Post by alucasjackson » Thu Jan 05, 2017 3:14 pm

So I'm attempting to replace the stock and forend on my new Super Mag. Removed the butt pad no problem but the stock bolt won't turn. I removed the trigger assembly and placed a little oil in other end but it still won't budge. What am I missing? I see nothing online that says stock removal is different for a Super Mag.

Got it off. Took it to a local gunsmith and it took the both of us to get it off. He said that was the hardest one one he has seen in years!

Was it put in cross-threaded at the factory? I've seen that before. If so, better replace the receiver stud before trying to install anything else.

Don't believe so. Threads looked ok visually and no issues putting on the Hogue Stock. I guess I will find out for certain when I take the Hogue stock off again down the road.

Great job on the videos by the way.
