Question sr 556 buttstock removal

i tried searching for a thread or a post , no luck so here it goes, how do you remove the butt stock on the sr 556? looked at the owners manual at the exploded view. it seems there is a receiver extension nut that holds it in place yes,. i see large spring around the buffer tube, dont want that to go flying. new to dis assembly of this gun particularly the butt stock. any help would be great and thanks for helping

The butt stock is taken off by pulling down on the release lever instead of pushing it in.

^Yes, what he said. Put it in the last position and then pull on the lever till it stops and then slide off while still holding the lever full open. Same way to get your replacement on.

thanks guys, hmm was wondering how that went on and off. ordered magpul ctr mil spec stock. i had too much wobble and was told that the ctr would be a good fix. any one put one on and found it to be the cure?
once again , thanks guys

I put the Magpul Moe stock on my SR, It has way less wobble than factory but it is not as tight as the CTR since it has the extra lock and doesn't wobble at all

thanks fellas. dead duck i didn't realize the acs had the extra lock on it also. looking at some picks i see it,or at least i think i see it. i wanted that one but when i was looking didn't notice it had the cinch down mechanism also. i like the fact that its wider and has a compartment for batts. , which will come in handy for any batt. assisted optics. or i guess i have to go out and buy a n ACOG now because i don't have any place for my batts. yea my wife will buy that line.

BTW any type of floor plate we can add to our hand grip for batt. storage?nice little hollow there, would love to use it. once again fellas thanks a lot, great being on this site with all of you sharing our passion for the shooting sports..

I really like the ACS, the compartments are a plus.

As for the grip, Hogue does offer a storage kit, not sure how it secures to the grip, you may want to give them a call and ask. I change my grips out for Tango Down.
