    Question Installing an AR type stock on an SU16

    I haven't dealt with ARs before, so I'm a little lost with the SU16's AR Stock adapter, mostly what exactly do I need to be looking for when shopping for stocks?
    Is the buffer and spring needed?




    (OAL is 27" with just the pistol grip)

    You don't need a buffer or spring as those parts are not part of the SU-16 operating system. The only parts you'll need are the buffer tube, castle nut and the stock itself.

    Correct but isn't this stuff supposed to come with the assembley?
    Also you should have recieved another set of adjustment pannels to change the hieght of your stock.

    Here is a video on how to take your rig apart & back together just the same as your version.


    Also if you come across the Vltor CSAM rail you can have a full free floated quad alluminum handguard that I found with 62grains and a trigger job to put this rifle right around the 1 inch mark at 100 meters.
    If you want I can still post pics and look for that video on youtube on how to do the trigger job.

    Yep, I got the other panels, and a couple different end plates. No castle nut.

    Are castle nuts universal?

    Holy hell I do not recommend doing that trigger job, an hour later and all I have to show for it is sore finger tips and a trigger group(luckily my spare one) that i can't get back together. trying to get the hammer spring to seat, in that shitty plastic, just no. I liked the original trigger, I just took it apart to see whats all there, big mistake.

    Dear god my fingers hurt I have no idea how he got his hammer spring looking like that.

    So sorry lone-wolf I should have put a dis-claimer stating only should be done if you are gun smith savoy as this is quite a difficult process to do

    It's depressing to see the hammer mar the stock from pressure alone. I don't like plastic
