I bought a 4 position Fiberite stock the other day. It seamed pretty good untill I stuck my finger down the inside of the extension. The walls have ridges like the milling machice messed up. Is this normal or did I buy a bad part.

I wouldn't think it was normal. The inside of the tube ought to be smooth for the buffer to work properly. How bad are the ridges? Are they annular (ringlike) or linear (front to back)?

I'm wondering if you might not be able to fit a brake cylinder hone down there to smooth it up... Just a theory, I don't know if one will fit. I would think it should be smooth at least as far in as the foraward end of the buffer will go.

The ridges are annular. When you stick the buffer in the tube and shake it up and down it sounds like someone taking a stick against a picket fence.

One things for sure you will never trust that set-up so get a new extension and move on ; that extension doesn't sound up to specs. ! You dern shure dont want your carrier group going in that thing ! !

Bought it at a local store here in Montgomery. The box it came in said Made in Taiwan. The rest of the stock extension has been machined nicely, its just the inside. Weird.
