I want to put a CTR on my Stag Model 2 and I was unsure whether I'm suppsosed to get commercial or mil spec. I'm assuming commercial, but could someone comfirm this?

Click on this (Magpul page on how to identify milspec v. commercial receiver extensions).

I saw that already and I still don't know.

If it's a factory stock complete Stag then you will need the mil-spec stock.

Ok, thanks the Stag site seems to say mil spec as well.

they are indeed mil-spec.

I had this same issue. Larue's website says Stag is commercial. I had talked to Denny where I ordered the kit from and he had said mil-spec so I got all confused. I ended up calling Stag and they said mil-spec. I wrote a message to Larue about their webiste having incorrect information on it but they haven't done anything about it yet (months ago).

When in doubt, send an email to Magpul. It may take them a while to get back to you (their volume has been insane since the election), but they know which manufacturer uses which tube. That being said, it seems a consensus here that Stag uses a milspec tube.

I just bought another CTR this week. So unless my four Stags are flukes they are definitely mil-spec

Stag tubes are Mil-Spec.

If the back end of the tube is flat, it's mil-spec. (Stags are.) Angled, is commercial.

I just got in my Stag "group buy" M4 kit and, while every thing else is great, the 6 pos stock has to go. For mil-spec, you'd think they'd get the tolerance down a bit better. Once you get used to a CTR stock, mil or comm, all others suck, unless you electo tape them into quietness.....

I haven't tried their MOE stocks out yet, but if they are tighter, they might save you some bucks for the poser look. I've wondered if I could submerge my rattling CAR stocks in boiling water with vise grips around them to tighten them up a bit, but the CTR makes it a waste of time. I've got three and looking to get another for my Stag.

I want a battle rifle, not a rattle rifle...

Not entirely correct. Not all commercial spec tubes are angled at the rear. I've yet to see one that was.

How to measure a tube?

Why guess or take someone else's word when you can just measure the tube yourself and know with 100% certainty whether it is mil-spec or commercial?
