Another question:

 

I have to tap with a rubber mallet the top of the stock near the receiver to get the stock off.  I was thinking about maybe bending the tab where the stock locks into the receiver to loosen it up slightly (or maybe try another stock?).

 

My question is are the stocks like the magazines, I.e., does the fit vary due to tolerances?  Anyone else have this issue?  It's a minor issue but it would be nice just to press the button and have the stock slide off for storage and transportation purposes.

 

Thanks,

 

Robert

I had the same problem. I measured several different stocks on the plate that slips into the receiver and they varied quite a bit. You could either file it down or try some other stocks.

 

 

I bought this MK V wooden stock with Broad Arrow marking and to my delight it appears to slide on and lock perfectly on my MK II:

It's also a very nice looking stock (after cleaning up with Ballistol).
