Need a buffer tube

Does anyone have a M16A1/A2 buffer tube assembly or know where to get one? Used is perfectly fine here.

That is for a M4 style collapsable stock though. The fixed stock a1/a2 is different and that is what I need.

Thanks though

I can't believe no one has a line on where to get an A1/A2 buffer tube.

Anyone?

Thanks, I won't be able to get onto any gun sites until tomorrow. I really need to try and get one by the end of the week so I can build my .308 AR lower.

I know I will see tomorrow but any idea on how much they average?

Is the .308 the same as an AR .223?

If so, they are about $20-25.

the buffer tube is the same for the .223 or .308, it will take a different spring and heavier buffer but having the tube will at least let me install the stock

I have one but will either need it back or your new one when it comes in, I don't have my lower for my LR-308 yet so it is just sitting here if you want to go ahead and get yours together........
