I need it because I got a Magpul Moe stock. Just the stock itself.

So there for I am looking for a used Buffer tube, spring , weight. ? Anything else i'm missing.

I got a standard comercial spec buffer tube stock with weight and spring. works just fine but I figure I'm gonna upgrade.

they do. Hence me asking the question.

However, some vendors only carry mil-spec

Riflegear so far only has mil-spec.

Brownells carries both.

yeah, I got pissed at first cause I was thinking "crap, gotta get mil-spec stuff" and then got looking around and they do have com-spec.

Then of course, what do I do...... Not buy the damn stock yet....

But, I do like the moe grip so far. So I figure get the moe handguard and stock next.

FYI, just to get your terminology correct:

It's receiver extension or buffer tube
It's the buffer spring
It's the buffer, not weight.

Now that you know the proper terminology, you can more easily spend lots more money on the habit :)

My new reciever extension fits very very tight(Can only force it half way in by hand) in my A1 E series early trap door stocks buffer tube cavity ,and there is some cracking peeling yellowish plastic liner inside the stocks cavity that seems to bind the reciever extension up ,so should I remove some or most of this liner material to allow bufer tube to slide in deeper/easier ?:confused:

Long story short.

I think my buffer is milspec because city arms said my tube/weight/spring/stock was milspec when i bought the set. apparently its commercial.

I buy milspec moe stock at gun show. NO opportunity to return really.

I place order for commercial. I am sent milspec after days and days and days. Plus 2 months. Also promised anti walk pins, but none came.

I am fed up with this ****, want to get a milspec buffer tube so I will have a comercial set if I ever build another ar or want to sell complete to someone.

I am going to return the milspec moe stock to the guy who i had a ****load of trouble with, and not even want to request a commercial one back.


So i want to never deal with the guy who I bought the 2nd stock from. Just return it. Keep the one milspec stock from the gun show, and get a buffer tube for it so I got a backup commercial set to sell or use.

$39 on ebay, $15 more to add buffer and spring. Don't know the quality, just came across it and thought I'd pass it along.
