Default Stocks, buffers, tubes & springs....

I recently sold the upper off my 20" Bushmaster with the fixed butt stock and am planning on buying a dissipator upper for it. Along with that, my plan is to put a collapsible stock on it, perhaps something from Magpul, like their CTR.

What all do I need to replace going to a collapsible stock? The tube, spring and buffer? Are any of the parts re-usable?

I've looked around but can't seem to find any "kits". If you have any recommendations on stocks I'd appreciate them.

Thanks in advance!

How used is your rifle tube and buffer assembly? Round count? I might have a trade for you if you are interest.

On the rifle receiver extension? No.
