So I removed my "carbine" buffer tube and want to install this new "rifle" tube. On the thread end of my buffer tube, there isnt a slot down the threads like there is for the carbine tube. So when I try to install it with the plate piece between the tube and lower receiver, it messes up the threads.


Am I suppose to use something else?

usually when you put on an a2 buffer tube you dont use the receiver end plate because the a2 stock holds the spring and detent in for the rear takedown pin

Eddie has it right.
That plate is part of the carbine stock assembly.
Looks like the PRS is built like A1/A2 at the receiver extension area.

Here you can see how the A2 stock eliminates the end plate and how the PRS resembles it.

The carbine extension and rifle extension are fairly different from each other. As others have said, the back plate is not used for a rifle extension because the rifle stock fills that roll.

The PRS will hold it in. Look into tapping it and using a set screw to hold it in.

Why?? Absolutely not necessary to do what you suggest. An A2 or PRS stock will retain the buffer tube on its own without installing some kind of setscrew jerry-rig.

I think he means the rear takedown detent spring. That way you don't have to fiddle with it all the time.
