Bread is People said:I like my way of doing it.
You grab the front and someone else brabs the stock. Then, tug of war until it comes out. Best to do it outside or in a large, clear room as one or both of you may possibly go flying when it finally goes.
Best part: normally no damage is done to the finish, plus you can't bend it or put a gouge in the metal.
man that must be some tuff wood then.I have done at least 35 and never had to do anymore than that.I feel for man,buggers..Dings,
I tried that screwdriver method on a SAR1 and all it did was eat into the stock wood and start deforming the metal in the trunion hole.
