    OK - what is it for? The round metal piece in the side of the buttstock with a round hole through to the other side, someone asked me a couple of weeks ago, and I was stumped.

    Gratification hole for pencil dink Turks?

    I think somehow it is a tool to take apart the bolt in the feild, I heard it was to remove the firing pin, but never tried it.

    The tip of the firing pin goes into the hole so that you can compress the firing pin spring with out breaking the tip off when you clean it.

    mauserman454 and jeeper1 are correct. It is also know as the "stock disc" and/or "take down disc". Do not try to remove it if you plan on re-finishing the stock. It is pressed on and you will more than likely destroy it in the process.
