    I need to get some parts to complete my build guys and not sure where a good place to get them is and any suggestions on upgraded items and such. Here is what I need: buffer, buffer spring, buffer tube, castle nut, end plate.

    I have the lower and the LPK and a stock, hopefully I am not missing anything, if I am, please let me know.

    Thanks ahead !

    Joebobsoutfitters.com, Midway USA, Brownells are places that I have had good results with. Check out the vendor listing here at ftf. Not sure what kind of optics or sights you plan on but a good set of BUIS would help. Also, what upper are you going with? A BCG or charging handle upgrade might be in order. Don't forget mags.

    Agreed...Troy and DD are top shelf without having to pay LaRue prices.

    I will be getting 50 Spike's Carbine Buffer Tube Assembly kits hopefully within the month. My regular price is $61.50 with free shipping, but with the forum discount, it ends up being $58.43. Until those arrive, The LMT Receiver Extension paired with either LMT buffer and spring, or VLTOR buffer kit, is all I have left. If you have never heard of either company, LMT has been a long time military contractor and when it comes to mil-spec, they are up there with Colt. VLTOR makes one of the strongest forged upper receivers, the MUR. They also make the popular monolithic VIS upper receiver. In addition, they have worked with BCM to develop the BCM GUNFIGHTER Charging Handle, as well as Noveske, to develop the KEYMOD system, which is used in the new Noveske NSR Rails and the soon to be released VLTOR VIS Monolithic KEYMOD system. Spike's is a great company and I sell a lot of their stuff, but know that there are available quality options. The Spike's ST-T2 buffer is a heavy buffer, which most uppers may not need. Spike's uppers tend to be over-gassed, so the ST-T2 helps to keep their uppers reliable. This is why when you buy a Spike's upper, it comes with an ST-T2 buffer.
