Ok, this might sound like a noob question but I'm new to gbb internals :unsure:

Can someone tell me the difference between stock tubes and buffer tubes?

    See my YouTube channel for footage.
They're the same thing, with the Armalite weapons, the buffer tube is just a hollow tube in the stock, a stock tube, that houses a spring to reset the bolt after firing.
