Probably not on your C15 I bet. Playing the odds it looks like the MOE is milspec and your RE is commercial diameter. Your original stock is commercial so measure its internal diameter vs. the MOE. Or just get the right size MOE, you could take your old stock and MOE to a LGS and have them get you the right MOE.
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.
You'll remember the quality of a gun long after you forget how much you paid for it.
