for $33 bucks you get a buffer tube, endplate, buffer, castle nut, spring and buttstock. Milspec tube diameter.

Never bought this before, can't say i recommend it. Not even sure if the tube is polymer or aluminum.
Can't say about this current configuration but six months ago I bought PSA's similar kit on sale for $39 and it did come with a milspec 7075 tube. Visibly it compared well with two BCM kits I got earlier.

In December I got PSA's $80 LBK (12 Days of Christmas sale) and again got good quality (stock kit and LPK). I've heard the tube that comes with the LBKs is 6061 alloy but honestly can't tell. I do "perceive" the two BCM tubes are slightly better machined than the two PSAs but have to be looking very close. In a blind test I may be able to pick out the BCMs but I wouldn't bet much money on it.

What's an LBK? I know what an LPK is, but have never heard of a LBK.

I am blessed to live in the hometown of PSA. I spend a lot of time and money at their two stores. Their store personnel are helpful and knowledgable .bought 3 boxes of 525 rounds of .22LR Winchester for $20 each last week plus 50 round boxes of .556 for $25. Not cheap but they had plenty of it. Yeah, I'm lucky,
