OK just to make sure since my lower is Mil-Spec a commercial grade stock would not fit?

"Mil spec" extension tubes are smaller diameter than "commercial". I've only noticed this to be problem specifically with Colt tubes, and these were 70's vintage. I used a commercial extension tube with a surplus A1 stock by putting put the stock in the oven for about 20 minutes on low heat, which allowed the stock to slide (with some assistance) onto the extension tube. Once it cools it will come off and go back on with hand pressure, albeit slightly more than you might expect.

With a collapsable, you will have to make sure the tube O.D. and stock I.D. are compatible. Again, specific only to Colt thus far in my experience.

While I have not mated that stock to that specific lower, I have mated it to a couple of other lowers, one from Rock River and one from......*thinking* somebody, hell I can't remember.

In any event, I do believe that you will be good to go with that stock, and as always, if a change is necessary, midway has a very good return policy.

The CMMG lower is quite common and is being resold by other companies, so I would be surprised if you found problems with common for sale gear fitting.

Sorry, I'll try to be more clear.

The extension tubes themselves, "mil spec" (Colt) or otherwise, are "universal, and will mate to ANY lower. The STOCK portion, be it fixed, collabsable or one of those whacky high power magnetic counter balanced mercury filled thingys that slides over the extension to make a shoulder fired weapon, MAY have an incompatible I.D. for your chosen extension tube. I found out the hard way by using pieces that were sourced both commercially, and uh, "reallocated" pieces from Government surplus.

I wouldn't sweat it too much unless your extension tube is honest to goodness Colt. Even then, I cannot say for certain if their government contract rifles and carbines differ in that O.D. extension tube measurement from their civilian guns. The one I have did.

Good luck.
