I don't know.

I have a defect stock.

I have to manually push force using both my thumbs in order to make this thing work. you guys do comprehend what im saying/problem here? I don't know if i am making any sense

just to clarify, yes, i just find out i have the mil spec. from that pic diagram it shows that the buffer extension it has 4 and the commercial has 6. well, for some odd reason mil spec has/ or has always been 6 now?

thanks, for those who are helping me.
step 1.
Run your finger over the threads...are they RAISED or are they cut into tube? Look at them close. This is the difference that tells the story, not the number of holes or the angle the back is cut at.

Look at the screw in the pin, does it have a roll pin going through it? Who made this stock kit? It is sometime possible to adjust the throw of the lever. By adding a shim under the lever, you decrease the depth of the holding pin. Some can even be screwed in to decrease the lock up detent.
