I currently have mine in a synthetic stock. I do not have the spring in it (I left it in the original stock. That is probably whats going on with your stock. The trigger group will not kick out, because there is no spring. It is also metioned in the instructions. So you will have to pull up with one hand and push in with the other.
The quick jab and hammer thing will work with an original stock and spring setup, yours will prob needs constant pressure. Up on the triggerguard and in on the tab (with the rifle upside down of course, safety must be on)
Well took the pistol grip off the Tapco stock and used a screwdriver to POP the trigger assembly. It popped immediately with little pressure.
Lesson learned don't put it in this stock if you want to have easy disassembly of the rifle. The hole in the pistol grip, while it does let you gain access to the area. It doesn't give you a great angle to make it POP.
Now the gun is disassembled and ready for its initial cleaning! Finally nearly three weeks after getting it.
But thankfully it is off now and my stock refinishing project is off and running. Will be cleaning these parts this week and hopefully finish the stock refinishing in the up coming months, due to cold weather and the fiancee not wanting me to stain it in the house.
i had a tough one had to hit with a rubber malet while hitting with a hammer on the punch on the release stock was tight had a !#@ of a time with mine getting it back together was just as bad ended up doing a little filing very little at a time after removing stock took some trial and error only file stock ended up replacing stock in the long run
Issue still arise. While I was able to dissasemble now I cannot reassemble. I cannot get the trigger group back into place. I am applying ample force and it is just not clicking. SAFETY IS ON. Mag is properly installed. Stock is inserted on barreled action properly.
The video I have linked in here is what I am using to help me put her back together, but she will not budge. My hands are numb trying to get the trigger group back on.
