    Both will fit your Spikes lower. Get the milspec diameter, life will be easier if you start swapping stocks down the road.

    Mil-spec is the stronger of the 2. Either will fit.

    Mil spec is the way to go. Stronger tube, easier to find, dunno why they even bother with commercial tubes anymore.........
