I wouldn't suggest it.  That screw not only secure the stock tube but also secures the rear of the mechbox. Route your wire from the bottom opening and reroute into the stock tube. ;)

I tried that, and my wires pinch too much and I had my battery fry. Is there another way I could route it? I don't mind dremeling.

I would also like to be able to put my sling adaptor on again, but I would dremel through that if I had to.

Thanks for the website!  :)

I was looking at my gun and my stock, and I noticed that the crane stock has room for someone to dremel a hole through the stock tube, because the top of the crane stock has a little more room to let the bottom have a gap inbetween the stock and the front of the stock tube.

Do you think it would be alright if I dremeled a hole in the bottom of my stock tube? This should allow my wires to go right through the bottom of the stock tube and have minimal pinching of the wires.

If I happen to mess it up, I could just use my stock stock tube, because my Echo 1 crane stock came with one.

Sorry if I didn't make sence! Also, sorry for the horrible quality pictures!

Alright, I cut my stock tube.

I'll see how it goes during my war this weekend, and then I'll say how it performed. It doesn't look the neatest, but it should get the job done. And I am getting less pinching!
