    I now have a spikes lower and spikes LPk kit coming in the mail. I need a buffer kit assembly. I'm going to end up getting a spikes 16" mid length upper for my build. Whenever they get in stock somewhere. I already have a magpul CTR stock I will put on it. What kind of buffer kit should I buy??? It will be a 5.56/.223 Cal.

    Get the Spikes buffer tube kit from rogtac.com or aimsurplus.com.
    Or you can get the PSA one.. cheaper and works great too.

    Edited* Rog and Aim have none in stock.

    You need to loctite the hand grip screw.
    You need some electrical tape to cover some area, to prevent scratching when tapping the bolt release pin. Some lubricant, i use Mobil1 Full Synthetic Oil 5W-30 to lubricate when needed.
    Would be better if you have a lower receiver vise block to hold the lower while you are working on it. Need buffer tube wrench also.
    Becareful when putting in the takedown detent pins, they can fly out and use goggle!.
    Browse some youtube, they have some good videos. Brownells has good videos too.

    It seems to be a good buy at the retail price level. I think you're saving some money as opposed to buying the parts seperately. (btw your message box is full).
