Help me out guys...

I'm planning my next build and want to get a Magpul CTR for my stock.

I have seen in some photos a sling attachment "spacer" on the buffer tube between the stock and the receiver end plate. I like the way it fills in the "gap" between the receiver and the stock when fully collapsed.

I guess this covers or acts as your castle nut...

Who makes this part and where can I find them...

Many thanks....

why would you want to do that? Is there an advantage?

One it's a single point sling attachment, I prefer single points slings.

Two it's for the looks...

I think LMT makes one...their Carbine SP mount but don't know what they look like mounted.

Anyone got any pics of one installed...

I have the MI version as well as the one made by Tangodown. The MI adapter MAY allow the stock to fully close, some will, mine won't. The Tangodown adapter definitely will not, but I got it for an AR10 whose buffer tube is longer, and the stock wouldn't fully close anyway

MI's adapter uses the dimple of the carbine receiver end plate to index, it anchors there to prevent itself from rotating. I've fround some of my carbine end plates are flush and do not have the indentation.

Got to have this:

MI industries makes a very nice unit and is easier to instal then the KAC unit (No disassembly) and 1/2 the price as Stickman mentioned.

Many thanks gentlemen...this is exactly what I needed to know!

Looks like I will be going with the MI version as I hate to take the buffer off once I have installed it or remove a factory installed one.
