Step One: Turn your rifle upside down so that you can observe the AK12 buttpad release button and manual user-interface (pictured above).
Step Two: Push the buttpad release button towards the rear trunnion (the direction of the arrow above). Hold the button in this position until you have completed step three.
Step Three: Carefully, yet with great purpose, slide the buttpad down and off the dovetail.
Step Four: Remove the cleaning kit from the buffer tube.
