    The end of carbines buffer tubes already have a small hole in them. They have plenty of meat to drill out and tap a hole. I'm not sure about pistol tubes. You just want to make sure that anything that you try and bolt into the inside of the tube doesn't interfere with the buffer and buffer spring.

    Why not just install an end plate at the back of the receiver that has a QD hole in it or a MagPul ASAP? http://www.impactweaponscomponents.c...FUdxQgodr18ABQ

    I wonder if that could be construed as a stock attachment point?


    I have seen a sling loop at the front of the buffer tube, clocked at 90* so gun rides flat sandwitched between the nut and end plate.

    I have the type you mention and would much prefer the type that doug linked to. The little nub sticking out definitely gets in the way. The positive is that the clocked nut is much cheaper.

    The pistol Buffer Tube does NOT have a Castle Nut. And I tried the sling "Loop" and it interfered with pulling the charging handle back.

    Yea thatís why Iím thinking it could be construed as an attachment point for a stock, they are real funny about that buffer tube on a pistol.
