Never thought about this until I got a milspec vltor emod by mistake and needed a mil spec tube.  If the mils pec tube is .02 smaller than a commercial are the threads the same?  In other words will it thread into any lower receiver and use a standard receiver extension nut and receiver end plate?
Sorry for the stupid question but all my car stocks are RRA and obviously commercial size.

The tube itself is smaller but the threaded area is the same.
