Default Buffer Tube Assembly

Thanks to mrwray, I now have a Magpul CTR stock on it's way (), but I need a buffer tube assembly for it. I found this one from PSA for $40(http://palmettostatearmory.com/index.php/complete-6-position-mil-spec-buffer-tube-assembly.html), which is about what I'd like to pay for one, but I really don't now much about buffer tubes, so I was hoping you guys could help. Is this a good one, or is there another one/better one fot the price?

Thanks.

I just bought PSA's buffer tube kit while I was in Columbia. Fits perfectly with my magpul stocks. They're good to go.

do they need to be so costly? i bot a 4-position stock with the buffer spring, buffer tube, and ring for like $28 @ my local gun store. EVEN THO i had a MagPul CTR waitin to be put on.......i only needed the buffer inserts.

I'm not sure why they're so high either. It doesn't look like they'd cost that much to make, but maybe I'm wrong.
