    Mini 14 in Sparta Stock (stuck)

    Hi - need some advice on how to safely extract a Mini 14 from a Sparta stock.

    The blessed thing, second hand and clearly not serviced in a long time, is well and truly stuck in the stock that has shrunk a bit around it.

    No levering or prying out without breaking something.

    Can someone let me know the best way of carefully widening the stock / creating enough space to allow a proper disassembly.

    I also do not have the spacers that may have come originally with the stock, so would like to implement a solution to ensure the stock stays in shape while I work on the action.

    Thanks in advance.

    Try using some oil or lubricant and try to pop the action out

    Wait till it gets really cold or stick it in the freezer.

    Is a sparta stock plastic?
    Plastic expands and contracts more than metal, so some heat should help. Maybe put it in a box with a lightbulb? Or a halogen work light?
    Or bring it in the sauna with you.
    Why does the rest of the country get first dibbs on half my income?

    The Sparta stock is said to be made of carbon fiber reinforced polymer.

    I tried to get the trigger assembly out of the bottom but no luck.

    The main action on top also would not move.

    The top rail came off after I put WD 40 on the screws in the side and was able to crack them with a lot of down pressure.

    Even if I can get it out, I will need something to work as a Spacer to hold the thing in shape.
