How to Fix a Wobbly M4 Style Stock

Introduction: How to Fix a Wobbly M4 Style Stock

About: Im just a random guy from Iowa that likes to do lots of fun things

if your stock is wobbly and noisy, look no further! I decided to take a break from all the cooking and make an airsoft instructable!

Step 1: Materials

all you need is

-tape (any kind works, I would recommend electrical tape)

- napkin, tissue, or paper towel

Step 2: Take Off Stock...

if you have an adjustable m4 style stock, pull the lever downwards. don't be afraid like your gonna break it, its supposed to come off this way. now, when its pulled down all the way, just pull the stock off the buffer tube.

Step 3: Add "padding"

now, rip a small strip of paper towel, or whatever your using, and fold it about an inch wide, 2-3 inches long, and 1/4 inch thick. now, lay this on the top of the buffer tube, and tape the two ends down. now, lay layers of tape going horizontally over the paperer towel. lastly, add two strips of tape going vertical on the right and left side of the buffer tube.

Step 4: Add Stock Back On

now, just do the first step in reverse. pull the lever down, and slide the stock back onto the buffer tube. now its time to fine adjust, if its still a little wobbly, go back and add some more tape. if it doesn't even fit, take some tape off.

Step 5: Enjoy Your Sturdy Stock!

having a sturdy stock decreases sound and increases accuracy, its very beneficial.
I hope you found this instructable useful! check out my channel for some cooking and in the mere future, more airsoft instructables!

    Personally, I just got out some velcro and stuck it on, then put the stock back on. Working fine!
