Best butt stock + buffer.
Hey all, I just wanted some opinions on what butt stock and buffer tube is the best?
I want it to be adjustable and comfortable to shoot sanding. I am putting it on a 16" midlength platform which will be used for an all around AR (ie varmint, accuracy up to 300+ yards).
Anything that's around $100. I would like feedback from people who have actually used the product! Thanks!

I have the Magpul CTR on my 18" model and I love it. It's rock solid on lock up, adjustable for any clothing requirements and is made of excellent quality material. I got mine for about $60 from Cheaper than Dirt and it was a great investment. Never had an issue with it.

I have a fixed A2 (GI style) stock on another AR that would be a hand out gun in the event of SHTF and it's okay, but I much prefer the adjustable CTR.

my carbine i use a milspec tube as those are a bit stronger than commercial tubes. they dont crush or bend as easy due to the smaller outside diameter.

my stock on my carbine is a magpul acs-l but i also like the standard basic moe stock. im torn between them. the acs-l works great with rail mounted optics. i really like the positioning for optics use.

Gonna be hard to get the best for $100. Try PSA RE kit with H buffer and a MOE stock. Might make it. I'd pay more for a CTR or STR.

I use STR with H buffer on my DD. Then CTR with Spike's T2 buffer on complete lower, doing nothing on my drawer.

STR w/ the VLTOR A5 buffer system.
