The PWS Enhanced Buffer Tube is an impact extruded 6061 aluminum version of our original billet 7075 aluminum buffer tube. This version was designed as a more cost effective alternative to the original.
The Enhanced Buffer Tube will resolve any carrier tilt symptoms exhibited by a short stroke piston AR and will reduce felt recoil.
Specifications and Features:
Width: 1.8" at QD points
Weight: 5.5 oz
One piece construction eliminating the castle nut and ensuring that when installed, the buffer tube cannot become loose
Attachment system automatically indexes the buffer tube perfectly straight
The bottom of the interior buffer tube extends a lip into the receiver, supporting the bottom rear of the bolt carrier, reducing the carrier tilt present in some piston systems
Two QD sling swivel attachments are machined into the front of the buffer tube allowing ambidextrous connection of your QD slings
The buffer tube is fluted to allow debris to be pushed out of the way, and a drain hole has been placed in the bottom of the tube, allowing for draining of water when the rifle is parallel to the ground
For use on Mil-Spec AR-15/M16 based lower recievers and/or weapons platforms.
