Assembling The Mesa Tactical LEO Telescoping Hydraulic Recoil stock kit requires no form of special tools or gunsmithing and takes approximately less than 30 minutes to fully install. All that is required are hex keys and a suitable AR-15 stock wrench which are all included with Mesa Tactical’s stock kit. You will need to provide a screwdriver (for the use with the pistol grip), plus whatever tools that may be required in order to remove the previous stock. As an additional option to your assembly, you may wish to use blue Loctite® liquid thread locker on the screw threads for added security. A torque wrench may also come in useful to make sure that you are using the correct torque settings on the fasteners.
The Mesa Tactical LEO telescoping stock adapters are designed to specifically accept AR-15 stocks that don’t require any form of a lower indexing dimple. This also includes most commercial and military collapsing stocks. Typically, any stock that features an indexing groove that has been machined into the ventral side of the firearm’s receiver extension tube threads will also work with the stock adapter accordingly. Other stocks may be able to be installed with very minor fitting adjustments. Similarly, the LEO telescoping stock adapters are also designed in order to accept any type of grip that doesn’t feature a any form of rear upper extension.
