Traditionally, the receiver extension (buffer tube) on AR-10 and AR-15 pattern firearms served a dual purpose. The first being to house the recoil system and the second to serve as a base for a fixed or adjustable butt stock. Recent innovations in featureless rifles and AR pistol variants, have eliminated the need for the buffer tube to support a butt stock.
Our Buffer Tube Covers are designed to return maximum functionality to the buffer tube. It restores the diameter lost from the stock being removed, allowing the shooter to maintain a proper cheek weld. It also gives the buffer tube increased functionality by adding snap on cheek rise slots and ambidextrous hard points for quick detach slings (Enhanced version only). They are injection molded in incredibly tough 33% glass filled nylon and are much more attractive than a foam sock or a bare metal tube.
