    My SLR-95 tang install (pic heavy)

    First up is remove thumbhole stock and this is what I had...

    I was lucky to find that mine was already milled out for the Tang(I have heard that some are not)...

    I bought my Lower tang complete with rivets from K-VAR...


    Next I found the rear PG rivet and a small divet in the reciever...

    I removed the rivet and drilled the other hole all the way through using a 5/32 drill bit....

    test fit the Tang...

    I found it easier to clamp the rear tang temp. while I drilled through the lower tang and installed the two rivets....

    with the two rivets installed, you can now head for the press...


    This is where my camera batteries went dead...I had to make a custom backing plate, then used the plate from my trigger jig for the inside...came out excellent....now I just have to find two screws for the lower tang.
    when society falls LOOKOUT! I will finally be on a level playing field!

    Thank you so much!

    Do you see any reason why you couldn't SCREW the tang on to the receiver (vice riveting) to make it easier to interchange an ACE folding stock as the situation dictates?

    I wish mine had been that easy.

    Thanks for the writeup. Too bad mine isn't milled for the tang.

    I don't see why not...the lower tang adds a liitle extra strength to the stock(without it the stock could break the upper off)Maybe drilling and tapping the tang,so you could screw directly into itfrom the bottom of the reciever.

    Woah! Glad you noticed that! My SA-93 does not have that little recess that allows the new tang to seat like the one in the pix.

    Is there a work-around? Don't really want to grind away at my receiver...

    Update: On the SA-93, you have to file the tang groove yourself. No easy way to do it, except with a SHARP new 1/2" file.

    I tapped the receiver and used hex-screws to secure the tang, so that one could alternate between a wood stock and an ACE folding stock, mission-dependant.

    My SLR-95 is not milled for tang either.

    i have done some of these with a 1/4" square file from harbour freight. they are very sharp and work great for cutting out the edges.

    Re: My SLR-95 tang install (pic heavy)

    Well, I got the fever after missing out on a '95 for $650 shipped found a '93 for $750. Now, looks ike I'm in for some work. What about using a Dremel tool? I know you can make bigger mistakes faster. Any other tips? The seller is including the tang as he was going to do the same thing.

    Sure, but be advised, a mistake here will cause a serious bubba-effect with a loose stock on an nice gun. At bare minimum, use a sharp file to get the lower corners of the groove tight and square for the tang...
