    I would like to switch to an adjustable magpul stock, can I use the buffer tube and spring I have now or do I need to buy new ones?

    please disregard my question, I just realized the stock is pinned to the buffer so of course I have to change it.

    I switched to a Magpul adjustable on my SR556 and did not need to change the tube or spring. I would think you could do the same?

    Could be a state compliance issue.....

    The sr556esc should have a mil spec buffer tube. Measure it to be sure. ImageUploadedByRuger Forum1457851111.840585.jpg

    Check and be sure the stock you order matches the tube you have.

    thanks all for the input, it is indeed a state compliance issue with the adjustable looking stock being pinned to the tube, I live in Ohio so I'll just change the buffer tube, it is mil spec.
