Pardon my ignorance here...looking at putting together another carbine and trying to pick the right stock and buffer tube...gonna build a standard AR carbine with 16 inch barrel...should I get Milspec or Commercial for this? Thanks in advance guys/gals.

Both my Colts have milspec tubes and H-buffers.

Both are 16" rifles (the 6920 and 6940 models).

I see no advantage in going any other route since most of the top shelf ARs (Colt, BCM, LMT, Daniel Defense) 16" carbines come with milspec tubes and H buffers.

The honest answer = it doesn't matter for any other reason other than the below.
If you chose the milspec tube you need to purchase a milspec stock because commercial stocks fit lose on milspec tubes.

Milspec stock will not fit at all on a commercial tube.

Milspec is size as well as material milspec metal is 7075 Aluminum almost twice as strong as 6061. If that matters.
