Default Need help with Thordsen buffer tube cover

I just received mine and I'm a little confused.
The directions/videos show what appear to be two threaded tubes and four allens:


What I got was this:

Am I missing something?

I have that also, but it just two of the allens attached to the tubes. No problem.

If they are silver tubes you have an older set if black you have the newer ones.

They changed the style of bolts to a Chicago screw. It functions the same but is less money. Just take the bolt out, slide the female threaded side into the hole and screw the bolt into it.

Thanks guys. So I have no tubes. Just the two allen bolts and the two shouldered female barrels which don't fit through the cover - holes in cover are all the size of the shaft of the thread.

I assume your buffer tube is turned offset for the picture, you may have received a old cover with new screws. If the female won't go into the hole contact thordsen for a replacement cover.

I'm pretty sure that's what happened. I could open up two of the holes enough to accommodate the barrels and call it a day.
Thanks.
