Went to replace a WASR stock and it is realy wedged in. Any TTPs on removing a stuck stock without damage? I tried using a screwdrive through the hole in the reciever but it' digging into the wood vice pushing the stock out. Thanks.

That usually does it. How about a nice hard strike on the carpet. One edge at a time? May be able to get it started like that.

I flex it back and forth. Put it side ways on your knee. One hand on the stock the other on the rifle and push down. Flip over. Flex, flip, flex, flip.

It will work the stock out a tiny bit at a time.

edit -

If you remove the fire control group you can get a chunk of wood in there and pound it out.

Too bad that method won't work in a romanian rear trunion.

For a kit build, after the demill I will sand down my stock a bit before wedging it back in. This makes it easier to remove, and keeps it from flaring out the sides of the receiver when pressing back in.

You can also tie it down with a strap and take a rubber mallot to the rear sight block to help force it off.

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.

Some Romy's have the two tang trunnion like the one pictured.
That exact or very similar technique has worked on every Romy I've done.

That's the way I roll :lol:

How many stocks have you removed, drill down a bit more, how many WASR stocks have you removed?

I don't think you are grasping the magnitude of a stuck romanian stock. I have seen WASR2 stocks absolutely destroyed from removal , not becuase of the methed use, the exact oposite infact. All normal methods failed, stocks broken off and the remaining portion in the receiver hollow drilled and chisled out peice by peice.

My advice, heat the rear of the receiver up with a hot air gun or propape torch to 300 degrees or so, then proceed with the stock removal.

Romanian stocks can really suck!!!!

I had to destroy one on my AES10b. The damn thing would not
come out. Heated it,beat on it,told it to go to hell !!!!
Then it went under the chop saw!!!!

Hell my new Wasr 22 was doing the same thing,but it did give in
after 1/2 hour of beating.

stuck stock

I used a method that has not been mentioned yet. I had a Maadi with a real nice laminated stock that was not coming out with any of the above methods, except by destroying the stock, which I did not want to do. Maadi stocks aren't cheap. I clamped a 1/4" piece of plywood on each side of the stock about 3" below where the stock met the receiver. I used 6" "C" clamps, having one in back of the other. I clamped them real tight. The plywood prevented any damage to the buttstock. I then used a BFH to hit the clamp on each side alternately and I'll be damned, but it started to move and I got it out of there without any damage. Sometimes you have to think "outside of the box".

stock

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.

Got it!

That sucker didn't want to budge. At first I tried using a dowl rod but that didn't work so I hit it on alternating sides until I could wiggle it out. Thanks for the help.
