I have the "stock" stock on my rifle, but would like to upgrade to a stock with a friction lock and better cheek weld. My rifle has the commercial buffer tube and I would like to just change out the stock itself. Any recommendations? Are my options limited with the commercial buffer tube to the point where I am going to have to switch to a mil spec buffer tube?? Any help is appreciated!

The magpul CTR stock had some movement even when locked on my Bushmaster M4. I suspect the Bushmaster commercial extention is a tad out of spec. FWIW

It is still an excellent stock and is alot tighter than the standard

Welcome to the forum! I absolutely love the CTR stock as an M4 replacement and it can be had for the commercial receiver extensions.

Would you guys think it is worth the cash to put on a mil-spec buffer tube or just deal with the looseness? (obviously a personal preference question)

I swapped my commercial buffer tube in my BM with a DSA one from PalmettoStateArmory and threw on a Magpul ACS stock. I like how the mil-spec tube gives me more options for using different stocks.

I've changed out all commercial extensions with mil-spec extensions as well. Not expensive or tough to do and you have so many more stock options.

I've seen mil-spec extensions on the EE frequently around $25. The extension alone at Bravo Company is $37.
