    I have a Magpul MOE Butt Stock and tube (milspec) combo installed on my rifle. Its OK except that there's a certain sway which can be kinda annoying sometimes. Any ideas on how to minimize this? TIA

    Ammm, I'm not sure how to describe it, but I guess the best way to do so is that the fit is not that snug (?) When locked into one of the positions, there's slight movement side to side.

    if that's the case then you have a milspec tube but a commercial stock

    Try fitting your moe on a friend's commercial tube first, just to be sure. If your moe is milspec then it won't accept a commercial tube.

    teka...MOE buttstock doesn't have the "power lock mechanism"..so it really wobbles a bit compared to the CTR which has it

    Actually noticed that. Have an MOE and CTR installed on different rifles. The CTR doesn't wobble, especially when the lock is engaged. Pero the MOE does. Wondered if there was anything that could be done about the wobble. Anyway, will try both your advice. Thanks Sirs!

    Try cutting small strips and stick it in the inner side of your stock. :)
