    IIRC, it's lefty-loosy when the muzzle is facing away from you.

    It may be staked or loctited on. It isn't uncommon for that part to loosen through the vibration of shooting and create problems, so often manufacturers will stake or loctite the telestock nut into place.

    Have you tried applying heat and have you looked for any staking marks?

    make sure to

    keep the flat oblong metal piece between the stock and the lower from turning. If that turns with the nut, you will damage the threads.
