I read one of the other threads about the DSA stock kits being mil-spec in size only and that they are not true mils-spec forged from the proper aluminum. Well, I suppose I should ask if being milspec really makes a difference(except for the obvious difference that certain stocks only fit that size of tube)? I mean, the majority of commercially available AR's have commercial sized tubes of similar manufacturing. So, does mil-spec in size only really make a difference? If so, I have been looking at other manufacturers, and it appears to be about as clear as mud. I checked Bravo Co, supposedly THE go to for all things super good for ARs. They have 6 pos M4 stock kits ranging from $75-83 with "mil-spec" tubes. Are these truly mil-spec, or are they only a different version of the same DSA buffer tube in their stock kits? Now, I could go all out and get a uber cool stock that is true milspec, but for the build of my KISS gun, I consider these out of my price range. So, what is real and what is right? And what to do? All of you AR gurus, your input is valued. Rod Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
