Milspec tubes are the same as the Colt tubes. MSTN has four position milspec tubes for $50.

I dunno; my two carbine buffers both fit my aftermarket, and my Colt tubes. Inner diameters are the same, or supposed to be at any rate. Edited to Add: Yup; just checked my two buffers. Exactly the same for both the Colt and the aftermarket piece. Only difference is that the new aftermarkat pieces has the rear plug retained by a split pin, and the early Colt unit used a series of grooves inside the tube to retain the plug.

When the Vltor Modstocks came out I recall one of the threads discussing that it was designed to fit the Colt/Military carbine tubes and that the Bushmaster, RRA, et. al. tubes were slightly bigger and didn't work.
