    My wife bought some wooden furniture for my birthday, and I've replaced everything but the stock because I can't seem to unscrew the damn thing.

    Any advice besides stop being weak?

    I took a dead blow hammer and a wooden dowl and tapped it out from inside the receiver.
    What furniture did you get? I got some Russian surplus blonde 74 wood on my 107R.

    Eta: Oh now I see you can unscrew the tang screws? Stop being weak. But also dont strip them out.

    I decided to grip the screw driver with a pipe wrench and that did the trick.

    I got some walnut, it's looking good so far.
    I need to whack the stock out with a rubber mallet (from what I've seen online) but I have to wait until tomorrow.

    Also my ports in the side of the foregrip aren't aligned perfectly. Is this common, or should I mess around with it some more. It seems like a snug fit.

    One of those rare conversations where the words butt, screw, & tight are all used in a G-rated sentence.
