Default Cheap Chinese Crap

Is this where the cheap buffer from the MOE LPK came from in my order? Please tell me that an honest American business that I have spent thousands at is not buying and sending (which I did receive) cheap chinese buffers. And WTF is with my moe stock not being able to fully collapse? Could it be because it comes from the same chinese factory that has no QAQC? http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/511246807/Buffer.html

I'm not too concerned about the buffer, but I would be concerned about the little metal parts in the LPK if we find out the same thing.

They are the same exact thing as the logo buffers. We can receive them more quickly if they don't have to go through the process of getting our logo on them. The logo ones will return once we get caught up.

All of our parts are made in the USA.

I'm not sure I know what you are referring to. We received a bad batch a while ago, and some got sent out. Other than that I haven't heard anything.

the above sounds like youre trying to put a commercial buffer tube into a milspec stock. the threads on the commercial are the same pitch but they look different (mil spec are perkier). the commercial buffer tube is a hair thicker and has a slant at the end where as the milspec is perpendicular.

did you buy commercial tube by accident?

Did you mention this on the web page? I SPECIFICALLY ordered an entire LPK, yesterday, to have a more "matching" effect on my build. Already HAD all the parts I needed, but spent a little extra $$ to "put your name on it".

OOPS!

Psa you guys need to look on this forum in depth everyone here who ordered your last batch of moe lpk are having issues with the stock sliding on the buffer, we need you guys as a loyal gun community to make this right. Some people are stating that then stock is the actual issue (maybe the ones that didn't come in the actual box just wrapped) others clam it's the buffer tube. Either way there is a bad batch and you guys should do some testing and get back to us.

The actual problem. Also.commercial or mil-spec buffer tube.

Im pretty sure if China can manufacture Apple's Ipads and Iphones and 90% of all flat screen HD LCD tv's from low end to thousands of dollar top end ones they can make a decent buffer.
