Default Commercial or mil-spec HELP

I think I have a commercial stock. It's the latest version of the carbon 15. I purchased a commercial magpul moe stock. It doesn't seam to want to fit. Fills like I might be able to force it. Any ideals.

not all commercial tubes are slanted most but not all. the only way to tell for sure is measure the diameter.

If it were a commercial stock and a mil-spec tube it would go on.....just be too loose

Check inside the stock for any excess material or rough edges that may need to be filed down, the shove it on thre
(assuming u understand how the orig came off.... )

The C15 uses a commercial diameter RE. Are you 100% positive you got a commercial diameter MOE? If it is did you get it on part way then it stuck? If so reread the instructions about pulling the tabs properly to get it on.

Quentin, thanks man for the advise. Only problem is that I was giving the stock from a guy and it came with no box or instructions. Yes, it is scraping the edges right off the bat. So, I am not 100 % sure it's a commercial MOE stock.
