The difference is the buffer tube on the rifle. The stock needs to match the buffer tube.

Sorry, missed that. I did notice the Hogue also had both types also. Guess I better go measure my recoil tube.

Mil spec and commercial buffer tubes are different OD’s. No difference in the two other than that.

Generally, a commercial tube will have a slanted end, while the mil-spec tubes are squared off. But yeah, measuring is the best bet.

Colt had the first collapsible carbine stock with the rubber coated aluminum stock.

I don’t know who the brilliant person was, who first decided to make a different size buffer tube with the “commercial” tube but it was a huge mistake. If I knew which company did it, I would never buy from them again. That is one of the most irritating issues with the AR-15 platform.

AR Butt Stock

Look at the threads. Are they level with OD of tube or stepped down?
If Mil-spec, I'd recommend LMT SOCOM. Smooth, tough, no rattle, no perceived movement, great check weld.

here is what I have saved in my photos for stocks and tubes, but I also have info on bolt carrier groups semi vs auto and front sights heights, gas system lengths, different buffer weights such as H1, H2, H3 and all the basic issued AR's also lube points and how much, etc if needed. or I could post it all up if there is interest?

I do have a couple more but this pretty much covers it.

It's a really simple fix..
Pull the buttstock off the recoil spring housing.
Add a strip of tape to it.
Put buttstock back on..
No wiggles.

Thanks, never thought of that, might give it a try before I spend the money. I like the butt stock except for the looseness.
