What Is A Buffer Tube Kit?

Fixed stocks will take up the whole length of the buffer tube and not be able to utilize those different positions. 

Within the buffer tube is a buffer weight and a spring. This is what allows the bolt carrier group to ride back and forth, creating the cyclic action making the AR9/AR10/AR15 a semi-automatic weapon.
