I want to swap from an A2 stock to a Magpul ACS - milspec

Will a castle nut from a commercial carbine tube fit the mil-spec buffer tube ?

Will I need a milspec reciever end-plate ? The commerical end-plate that I have wouldn't fit over the milspec tube (larger diameter)

Will any spring and carbine-buffer fit a milspec buffer tube ?

Thanks
Steven

All are the same, or should be. So yes is the answer to all of your questions. Quality is going to be the only vaiable.

well don't forget, a Mil-Spec tube is not the same size as a comercial tube... so I would check further into that

Will I need a milspec reciever end-plate ? The commerical end-plate that I have wouldn't fit over the milspec tube (larger diameter). End plates don't come in commercial or mil-spec sizes. Some are out of spec, however.

Will any spring and carbine-buffer fit a milspec buffer tube ? Yes.
