How to change a standard rifle stock to a tele stock
First make sure the rifle is unloaded. Then remove the upper from the lower by pushing out the takedown and pivot pins. Put the lower receiver on an AR15 lower receiver vice block and remove the upper rear stock screw with a flat screwdriver. Remove stock body.
Remove takedown pin detent spring from lower and set aside
Remove buffer and spring by pushing down on buffer retainer and releasing the buffer and spring.
Remove both completely from the lower and set aside.
With the cutout portion of the tele stock wrench loosen the buffer tube but don’t unscrew it all the way. (If you are not using this style of tele stock wrench simply use an end wrench)
Before doing so make sure you put a thumb over the buffer detent to keep it from shooting out of the lower when you turn the buffer tube all the way off. Release the buffer detent and spring slowly and leave them in the lower.
Screw the tele stock buffer tube all the way in while holding the buffer retainer down with your thumb. Turn the stock in until it stops against the retainer, then back it off until it holds the retainer in, but isn’t rubbing on it hard. The buffer retainer should move up and down freely when you press on it.
Stock should be straight with the pistol grip
Reinstall takedown pin detent spring. Make sure it is square against the tele stock endplate and push the spring in then screw the castle nut up against it.
Tighten castle nut down snugly with the wrench. It is also okay to use a little blue Loctite on the threads to keep it from loosening. (Or stake the nut on if you want a more permanent installation. I covered castle nut staking in the May 2013 newsletter.)
Push the carbine buffer and spring that came with the tele stock assembly into the buffer tube and you are done.
To remove a tele stock and install a standard stock assembly you basically just reverse these instructions. The only thing to be mindful of is to back the castle nut off enough to remove the takedown pin detent spring completely before turning the tele stock off so you don’t damage it.
CUSTOMER SERVICE CORNER
Cheryl Eliason, Customer Service Manager
We receive a variety of customer service related questions from our customers, and in order to better serve all of you, highlight one question each month.
This month’s question is:
How do I obtain a copy of your Operators Manual ?
A PDF copy of our Operating and Safety Manual is available on our website. Just go to www.windhamweaponry.com and click on “Media Center” under Misc. you will find the Rifle Operator’s Manual.
I just wanted to say how much I love my Windham SRC. This is my first rifle and you have set a very high standard for future purchases. I am looking forward to deer season – its been 30 years since my last hunt. I am even planning a wild boar hunt with my brother in Texas. My SRC is the best father’s day gift ever!

June was another great month for Windham Weaponry Law Enforcement Sales. I was able to attend the National Sheriff’s Associations Convention in Dallas-Fort Worth. The Convention was awesome and the attendance was as well. I had the opportunity to meet so many Deputies and Sheriffs from all over the country that I have done business with over the past 2 ½ years. So a BIG THANK YOU to all of you that stopped by the booth.
After attending the convention, I headed to Victoria TX to hunt hogs with officers from South Texas. I would like to send out a very special thanks to Gary and Jimmy for making this possible for the second year in a row. Todd from EoTech and Chip from ATN supplied the thermal optics for the hunt and I would like to thank both of them as well. It was a great 3 days of hog hunting as we were able to bag nearly 60 hogs. Sadly, we didn’t put a dent in the population, but we sure tried.
