    Screw smal butt plate in artic butt

    Hi guys,
    I was looking for information to fix the small butt plate on the artic butt, if anyone has photos or drawings, to be able to post, I see what to do with the lathe and cutter. Thanks to all who will answer.

    If you have the butt plate and the butt, I'm not too sure what your intentions are with your lathe and cutter?

    Dear Flying10uk, it is easy replicate the screw, because the screw had a particular profile!

    Do you mean the Buttstock bolt? i.e the bolt that screws into the return spring tube.

    Before fitting a small butt plate to an arctic butt I would consider eye relief, the rear of the backlight ramp can make a nice mess of the orbital socket.

    Thank you BigBadDog, yes i have a small butt plate , I will be careful, however there is a particular screw? Do you by any chance have a picture of the screw head?

    By screw I assume you mean the buttstock bolt, sometimes referred to as screw, return spring tube.

    If this is the case A.M.S. Militaría have one on their website for 5 Euros. Reference AMSO1839. There is a good picture of the screw/bolt.

    The use of the Small Butt Plate on the Arctic Stock requires some special components (items 3 and 4), items that are scarce, very scarce. There are probably box loads of the parts somewhere in a storeroom that no one knows what they are for.

    Here's what you need

    I think that Kev may have answered the original question.

    Once you have a drawing of what you want, a doddle to turn up a spacer and, if required, a bolt on the lathe (assuming you know what thread the bolt is )

    Been exercising my very grey matter on this, IIRC the bolt, No 5, and the spacer, No 8, as on the drawings posted by nzl1a1collector were the same as per any other butt fitment it was the spacer, No3, that was the additional part required and the screw, No 4, to round it all off.
    Again IIRC the spacer was a simple short cylinder that effectively made up for the difference in butt lengths, a very simple task to machine and fit.
    Please correct me if the memory has failed me, wouldn't be the first time

    Yes Sir, items 3-4 are the ones I was asking if possible to have measurements or photos, to reproduce them, piece 3 is simple a nylon bushing and I can find the measurements simply from the small plate butt, instead the head of the screw, I would like to see the incision for the screwdriver reproduce with the cutter. Many thanks
