Alright I'm a new member and this is my first post so I'm very sorry if it's in the wrong place. Well to start off with I just bought a JCS SS Folding stock off of the Special Ops store and I have a problem. Stock

I bought this stock thinking it would fit into my 98 Custom Pro (ACT) considering that I haven't found anything on the store with specifics towards the Custom Pro. The stock arrived today and I soon realized that it wouldn't work with my gun because the end cap for the stock has one hole and the regular end cap has two. What I'm trying to figure out is if there is any other way to get the stock to work or if any other 98 Custom stock on the store's website will work with my gun. Also, is it possible for me to return the stock if I have opened the package the stock came in and does anyone know of a stock I could exchange this one for?

Thanks a lot and any other advice on what to do is equally appreciated.

Yeah that was my next option cutting a hole for the top spring. Is it worth it to drill and risk messing up or just return it? Right now I'm leaning towards drilling but I'd have to wait a few days for my dad to get home and say it's all right to use his tools.

Welcome to the forum! I don't think there are a lot of stocks out right now that will fit the act since the act is still new. If you can use your dads tools or can get him to do it just drill a hole the same size as the one in the end cap and you will be fine.

Yeah I was thinking that before the drill^^. If I could file the original end cap flat then glue the stock on somehow, but as it is now I'm probably going to wait until my dad gets home on Thursday and I'll drill it myself. Thanks for all the help guys.

Suggestion, use calipers to measure how deep the hole is on the end cap. Then on your drill bit make a mark with a sharpie or tape it so you know how far down to go. If possible, use a drill press. Put a bit of household (3-1 oil) on the drill bit to help.

Other than that, go for it.

Well my dad is an engineer so if I really want it to be done right he could take it to his job where they probably have better tools like a drill press or whatever to do it. I have another question though, will everything work the same as it would if it were made for the 98 Custom Pro? For example, will it fold the same way or will the rear bolt possibly hit the end cap possibly causing damage? Thanks again and please pardon my noobness to all of you more experienced forums users and players.
