Re: Unable to remove stock. Any ideas?

did you have to put it in a drill press?
I found an old bolt extractor kit that I forgot I had so I'm going to give that a try, then I'll resort to drilling it.

Yes my drill press had a vise jig on the base so it held the rifle perfectly..

Not all extractors are designed equal, I had some old extractors that ended throwing away because it made it worst ... no drill, press, or vise required ... $20 will spent

Use a TORX bit, one size larger than the allen size.

By using the TORX bit, this is the same philosophy as "flank drive" wrenches/sockets.

Tried the torx and no luck. I think I'll go with the Grabit. My old set of extractors didn't have the right size so I'm still looking at drilling it one way or another.
