    Hi Paul, I'm new here also, first post.
    I have a new c308 also(last year) that supposedly barrel and receiver, and plastics are new PTR.
    If yours is the same, you only need to take the two screws out that hold the butt stock to the back plate.
    (from recoil spring side)
    No need to remove the butt pad
    Every thing looks new, but is a little different than original CETME.
    Old wood fits fine, though I had two wood stocks and one fit better than the other.

    How did the c308 muzzle brake come off?

    good luck
    Tom

    If there are two screws, its probably a G3 style buffer - which might make some sense if PTR was supplying parts (or some of them).

    The older CETME design used one screw on the front side of the buffer, a wood screw rather than the machine screws and threaded inserts that the wood G3 stocks have. The buffer is positioned differently in the CETME too, so the two styles won't interchange without a bit of hacking on the buffer hole (can't remember now which one is higher up relative to the wood - G3 I think, but wouldn't swear to it).

    The surplus G3 wood remains extremely popular, so there's some incentive to use the CETME surplus if you have a CETME recoil assembly, it ends up being a less expensive project as the CETME surplus is still pretty reasonably priced. But for CETME wood I think I would stick with using the stock-buffer screw over the single wood screw. The G3 stock can get away with just the front screws - the stock-buffer screw for that one is probably overkill, so a soldier could smash it over a Russian head without the stock coming off
