as far as removing the band springs i use a panelling nail with the point clipped off flat... insert into the hole on the other side of the stock and tap the bandspring out

Well I got the old piece out, and I sent in an order to buymilsurps.com.
Costing me 8 bucks and 6 for shipping.
I'm a little sad I can't shoot the rifle without annoyance until then.

JB weld does not work
My front barrel band clip is somewhere forward of where I was shooting....

I can still shoot it yes, but like I said, without the annoyance... lol. And now the stocks are bare and the wood-filler'd in the dents that I couldn't take out with steaming. Just gotta do the final sand then finish. Then I'm done, until the new part comes in.
