Two days ago I bought a Maverick 88 and a pistol grip to throw on it. The stock bolt is a slotted flat head screw and I can't get it to budge at all.

I've tried:

-WD40

-Gator grips don't fit down the stock

What can I do?! I really would like to be able to use my pistol grip I bought. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

Matt

Take out the trigger group. That'll give you access to the threaded end of the bolt that's in the receiver. Apply some penetrating oil, wait a bit, and try again.

When you get the bolt out, consider replacing it with a hex-head bolt. A socket and extension works much better than a screwdriver.

are you positive its not a bolt head with just a slot cut in it?

1/2" socket and a long extension.

That's what I did; just don't mess with it until you got the right tools. Worst comes to worst bring it to a gunsmith (all it is a stuck screw).

When you are all done and put the pistol grip on, I'll bet you won't like it. Very uncomfortable to shoot!

As NHrural stated, pull the triggergroup and apply penetrating oil to the threads. Then put a long bar of some sort in the stock hole and tap it firmly a couple times with a hammer and then try to unscrew it again. Mossberg receivers are aluminum and will seize onto the bolt threads pretty strongly sometimes. Also, when you get it removed, get some "All-Thread" of the same pitch (5/16x18 IIRC), cut it to length, and use some red Loctite to secure it in the receiver, install the stock, and use a washer and nut. It will keep you from accidentally stripping the threads out of the receiver and it is less prone to working loose.
