COLT 4 position M4 7075 forged carbine buffer tube
Offered for sale is a 100% genuine Colt 4-position mil-spec forged carbine buffer tube
this is a recent "take-off" from a new Colt lower or new rilfe. The buffer tube has not been used, but will likely show some minor signs of wear on the threads, as a result of the force needed to take off the extension tube. The rest of the buffer tube will be 100% functional, and 99% cosmetically new. You will not have any problems with the threads when you install, but you will likely see where the buffer wrench wore against the threads. Some localize thread damage, but the castle nut will easily glide along.
Perfect for Colt and mil-spec builds, when you need Colt. The four position buffer tube is trademark protected, and is made of hardened 7075 aluminum forgings and then cut to exacting standards to hold the weight of the stock and gun in battle. Why settle for something less, when you can have Colt quality where it counts -- in an area that is prone to stress on your AR.
Colt also does make a specific 6-position Mk18 SOCOM buffer tube, but most 6-position tubes are not Colt.
Please feel free to ask questions before you buy.
a note on small parts at Charlie's
Charlie's uses this part in our rifle and upper assembly, and as such, this is a manufacturing part for us. When we have enough inventory, we also make this available for sale. As is the case with many of our manufacturing parts, we must have these parts in-stock, and try to never run out. With Colt that is hard, as the supply chain sometimes has parts and sometimes does not. If you are shopping for parts, it is very likely that you will find one of two things, and this is true for this genuine Colt part: a) another online retailer has this part for a lower price, and/or b) every other online retailer is out of stock. In trying to make sure we always have stock, it is possible that our price is a little higher for small parts. We understand that, but we also want to have the item in-stock. Make sense? You decide. Our business model is to build and to buy the best assembled tactical products, and along the way also bring you great parts. Please judge us on the whole.
