I have a carbine that I had an ATI stock put on. I had a gunsmith do it since I am not all that good with things like this. I note that he got the part that goes around the operating handle (the roller) installed backwards so the operating handle will not stay in the open position. I am concerned about unscrewing the operating handle out since it is very far forward. I am concerned that the hole for the operating handle will disappear behind the stock. Is this an unfounded fear? Also, I wanted to remove the factory rear sight and install a red dot. I did not realize that the sight has backing plates on the underside of the receiver shroud. I finally got them out by shaking to gun for about 30 minutes. How do I replace the backing plates and the mounting rail for the red dot? Was there another way that I should have approached the idea of a sight change? This is probably elementary to many of you but this is not in my skill set. Thanks :embarrassed2:

Thanks for the response. Yes, the rails came with the carbine. I removed the rear sight not realizing that they have backing plates n the underside of the receiver shroud. Do I have to remove the receiver shroud to replace rear sights? That seems strange.

Re: 995TS STOCK QUESTION mounting new sight

I have the rails. What I did not realize is that the receiver shroud is not tapped for screws. There are backing plates for the screws on the inside of the gun under the receiver shroud. When you remove the rear sight the backing plates drop into the gun. What is the process for removing the rear sight and replacing it with the factory supplied rails?
