Default First build

Well I've almost got my entire lower together. I hit a snag. I had the pistol grip and a2 stock given to me and with my financial resources the way they are I was not complaining. Only problem is that I'm missing a screw for the end of the buttstock and need to figure out what kind of screw I need. It's the Lower screw to secure the end to the stock and I need to know if If I should get a small bolt and nut ( there's a slot in the bottom of the stock that makes me think its a bolt and nut) or if there's a certain screw I need. Can any of you guys help me with this?

It's a slotted screw with a drain hole in it the slot is on the buffer tube so you can tighten it up. You should be able to find that screw pretty cheap. I would feel robbed at 2 dollars. Try Rock river in the lower parts section. Or maybe palmetto state armory I know they had butt stock kits back in a few month ago when I finished my last lower build.

After looking at the diagram on rock rivers website I need the sling attachment point as well? Is that what the screw threads through on the slot? If so that's what I'm missing

Ok so I need the screw and the sling attachment to finish it. Will the upper screw hold everything together just to finish the lower for now?
