 Post subject: Stock removal on Stevens 311 Series H Double barrel

I bought a Savage Stevens Mod 311 Series H recently, then bought a replacement stock from Numrich when I noticed 2 hairline cracks on the right side of the original stock. I had to rework the handle on a long straight blade screwdriver to reach far enough up inside the stock to engage the screw to loosen the stock. If this sounds moronic I apologize, but it the screw loc-tighted from the factory, or is there something I'm missing here? I can get onto the head of the screw, but it's not releasing, and I'd rather not break something just because I overlooked a step. Any input?

It's probably rusted if the shank on your screw driver is square you might need to put a wrench on it to brake the bolt loose. You should have a hold of the receiver in a padded vise.

I have had this problem in the past. Since you are replacing the stock you can set the gun barrels down and put some product such as "liquid Wrench" or "PB Blaster" down the hole because stock absorption doesn't matter. Let it sit over night and the screw will turn out.

I would remove the barrel set from the frame, & place the frame in a padded vise before cutting into the wood just behind the action in a radial manner - until the old stock was history & I could then work on loosening the throughbolt with a pair of visegrip pliers (after soaking the bolt threads in the action tang with penetrating oil).

A very different tool to use to get better leverage that a screw driver is the tire iron lug wrench. It will fit the bolt head perfect and you can get better leverage.

I've used a ratchet with an extension, a 3/8 to 1/4 adapter and a 1/4 screw driver flat bit, very easy.

BINGO

Make sure to get the driver bit that fits fairly tight on the side of the slot and goes substancially in the slot. Keep plenty of down pressure.
