I just think it would be a lot easier to remove the plate. The screws should come right out.
I would check the spring to see if it is to big for the cleaning kit. I bought a K-Var stock for my SAR1 and the spring did the same as yours did.
I bought another spring at the Gun Show and replaced the original one and I never had a problem after that. I hope this helps.
