Couple years ago I put a monte' carlo stock on my Norinco... ended up taking it off after a couple months. Did NOT like it.

You're asking if you can have the wood on the gas tube and have the synthetic stock at the same time? With mine it was possible. Doesn't look too pretty, though.

You will get a plastic piece for the top of the gas tube area with the stock.

I didn't use it, I got a special high grade gas tube with a metal shroud on it.

If you use the plastic piece, it has a rail on it. Its only good for white light. It jumps around too much for optics. Since Im anti white light, Id say leave it empty.

Tapco stock, sling and butt pad, came as a kit (minus gas tube cover, which I gave away)

i have a fast and crude way of changing it out. first use a hacksaw to cut the wood peice in half (carefull not to cut too deep and hit the gas tube) then smack the back support a bit with the hammer so its angled back a bit. then place the new one ontop of the tube and with one swift blow, smack it down into position. should take you about 3 minutes to do. i know it sounds barbaric, but it works !

I asked about how to remove the cover from the tube, on here about a month or so ago. If you search back it should be easy to find the thread. You have to grind off the pin where the head is mushroomed out to hold the cover on the tube. Either that, or get a tube with a different cover already on it.

Yes, you can just put the wood covered gas tube back on with the Tapco stock. If you want it to match, just spray paint the wood. I don't use the Tapco hand guard anyway because of the dorky rail. I either replace with a plain plastic one or paint the wood to match.

nice, where did you get your cover/tube at? did you make it yourself?

The pin is almost always ground flush on both sides. When they put it in it looks a lot like a nail. It has a head on one side. Then they peen the other side until it mushrooms into a head. Then they grind both sides flush, so essentially both sides have a head on them. You can take a steel punch and drive the pin out. It just takes a little work to get the head to start lifting up. I then go to a smaller punch, so the head can fold up around it. It's a pain the first few times you do it, but you get the hang of it after a while, sorta like field stripping a Ruger .22 pistol.
