I have the fixed stock model. i removed the stock down to the buffer tube. I just can't get that thing to move AT ALL.

Anyone know what you have to do?

You would need one of those special AR wrenches to unscrew that, wouldn't you? (since the stock is like one on an AR15)

I'm working the same problem. As the problem resolves itself I will pass on to you solutions found. By the way the tube is not the same as an AR. At least when we're talking about the Fixed stock version of the TPS.

has anybody had any luck with this? having the same problem trying to remove the A2 buffer tube from the fixed stock assembly.

edit:
NM figured it out-
The buffer tube on the A2 stock models (fixed stock) is held in place with Red Loctite. What you'll need is a vise, armorers wrench with A2 stock cutout (I used the one from Brownells), a 'breaker bar' or large wrench, or you can use a pipe to get extra leverage on the wrench, and a heat gun/torch.

I removed the stock, applied heat to the region the threading was, once the loctite begins to breakdown, you can break it loose, but you need to use sharp snapping force, constant pressure won't help

I have the CAR stock model and it was the same thing for me...that damn lock ring is on there TIGHT from the factory. It took a bit of time but I broke it free, all is well.

My gripe is that you have to take the thing off to get the trigger assembly out...I love my TPS but this is a pain figuring removing the trigger assemble is crucial to disassembling the rest of the firearm.

Oh well...minor complaint...what can I say, I love that thing flaws and all...
