Do it mater how far in as long as it catches the buffer retainer? My buffer tube can catch the buffer retainer(detent) in two spots. One at the very edge and the other is all the way in to the nipple of the detent. Any help would be great.

Really? I would say go all the way. But that's interesting, because on every collapsing stock I've put on it only works one way. One rotation either way is either too far in or not enough.

what kind of tube is it and in what kind of reciever?

FWIW when I built my first carbine it was the same way. The first time I threaded it all the way. Then the upper didn't fit to the lower and it was bitch to get it to fit down all the way and push the pin through. Not to mention the retainer got bound up. So I back it out, one turn I think it was, so it just caught the edge. Stop the binding and the receivers fit together great.
