Ok, got it. Went through the basics and it looks and feels great.
Question is how do I remove/loosen the buffer tube. I want to place a sling ring on it.

Thanks

It should just unscrew. Some have lock tight.

Tried to hand loosen it. No go.
Do I need to get an armorers tool?

No, if you have a RRA tube there's no tool for it. If you can't break it loose have someone else try that might have stronger hands/arms (no saying you're weak but..) If that doesn't break it then you can buy a strap wrench from sears or most anyplace else that sells tools.

Make sure you read this thread so you get the right kind of sling plate READ

Looks like the CAR stock receiver will work.
Thanks

Hit it with a heat gun first, use a good strap wrench or wrap it in something tough like leather, heavy/thick leather and pipe wrench it.

Noveske end plate, Magpul ASAP and yes the Kicking Hippie!
