So my AR is built and now I'm getting bored not having anything to tinker with. I want to do something cosmetically appealing while still retaining function of course. I saw the PWS Enhanced Buffer Tube and thought it looked cool. Now I've turned my attention to pimping out my toob. I like the PWS and will probably get one unless anybody else knows of a company that makes a cool looking buffer tube. Suggestions?

VLTOR makes one with numbers on top so you can see which position your stock is in.

I too am interested in this but also wanted to know if you can use any type of buffer spring and buffer or if they have a proprietary one that needs to be used with the buffer tube. I know some guns can be picky on which buffer weight is used.

If you wand a bad ass buffer tube, I think PWS would do the trick It's gonna be hard to find one that beats the PWS look. I just called PWS, they lowered the MSRP from $149.99 to $74.99 and they have 16 in-stock
OMG I want one.

VLTOR A5.

It may not be as "cool" looking as the PWS but it functionally improves your rifle.

RifleTwo: That picture pretty much sealed the deal for me. I don't think anything is going to come close to that in the looks department. Thanks for the input dudes.

You get off on pictures, don't you?
When you going to post some of your own that aren't Photoshopped?

WTF?
I have no idea what you guys are talking about.
The White Oak stuff is neat though, but not really the direction I am heading.

I have no idea either. Sent the dude an IM... no reply Meh. I don't feel like pushing the report button on him when i have no idea what is going on so i guess ?

Yeah that stock is kinda cool, i don't know about the whole blue anodizing though.

i wonder if you could do some custom work on a standard tube with some stencil and an ingraver??? but i agree that fluted tube looks pretty cool... but i uselly keep my stock about the half way point so "FOR ME" it wouldnt be that flashy for most of the fluting would be covered up...

I think I'm going to order one for my SPR build next week (if they still have any in stock) I'm about 6'3'' with long arms, I normally have my stock out as far as it can go, so most of that delicious fluting will be visible Does some one make an extended length receiver extension for collapsible stocks? They should

From PWS website.....".Unlike the original PWS EBT, this unit is made from impact extruded 6061 aluminum in order to keep the cost down while keeping the quality high."
In other words they didnt just lower the price like the OP stated they made it cheaper from 6061 not milspec 7075 aluminum. If that matters to you then buy the 149.00 tube not the cheaper one. I wouldnt buy the one made from 6061 but that is just me. BTW this has been covered before....
