Strike's castle nut fit to my forged receiver was as expected, awesome. The part filled the "void" between receiver & stock tube at my normal stock position thus making the stock appear to be a fixed model. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, my opinion is this small part added about 40% more "Unique appeal" to my build, as well as providing a functional QD single point sling attachment point.

Excellent product, the fit on my palmetto state armory lower was perfect and looks great . Really like the QD hookup .it was very easy to tighten up the castle but, no issues. If your considering it I say just do it , you will like it

Strike Industries makes both quality and cool products and this is no exception. Functionality wise, it is great and gets the job done. It also just has a certain cool factor to it if you are one that likes a little extra flair in your rifle.

This is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Fit and finish is great. Love the way the castle nut covers the threads on the buffer tube. If you get this package it will not be your last. The QD end plate set the whole thing off.

This installed easy and the finish was perfect. Unsure on it’s durability as it’s new. I will edit with issues if I see any. I like how it completes the lines on the rear of the rifle. Purchased this for a wall display piece rifle. It sure I would use it on a combat rifle.

Used on my recent build to add a bit of flare. Way nicer than regular castle nut. Very nice! Strike industries always has high quality gear. I was hoping the gray would pop more but the gray and black still looks good

Nicely machined, great fit and finish. Adds some "bulk" to the receiver extension providing strong support for QD sling mounts. Castle nut is extremely secure and looks great, too. Also seems to feel like a better balance when stock is adjusted to full length.

I don’t know about you guys but the standard caste nut is really ugly. This enhanced castle nut is the way to go for sure. It covers the threads on your buffer tube. With the old castle nut it looked like something was “missing” but not anymore.

Thai is a super cool endplate. Takes up part of that ugly space on your buffer tube and the castle nut is cool looking. Even has a set screw to run down for the rear take down pin spring. They've thought of all the good stuff! I will definitely buy another on my next trick AR.

Awesome product, looks great with SI milspec red tube. Installation is super easy on Aero Precision upper. Nice packaging too. Best part is Allen stud at rear allows easily installation of rear detent and spring.

Covers up the threads and that is mainly what I wanted but having the QD on there as well is awesome! Definitely easy to install and very durable as I have had mine for a while now and it's gone through all sorts of stuff my rifle has!

Fits great, looks great, machined great and works as it should. Wasn’t sure if Strike Industries made good parts or not until I bought this part, well it is the best castle nut and end plate on the market! Adds another sling attachment also.

Very easy to install and actually made it easier not to need a traditional AR tool to tighten. The fitment was exact and it covers the rear dent very securely. Visually extends the lower for a very nice look especially with a pistol buffer tube.

I really like the extended QR mount, it’s really well made. Threaded for detent making it adjustable tension on rear takedown pin. It keeps the QR away from your hand so you don’t have to worry about pinching your hand on it. However my only complaint is the castle nut is pretty long so you can’t compress stock all the way in for position 1 for storage, I tried to use a standard castle nut but it’s too thick to fit into the design. I originally installed on my 9” AR pistol, but I’ll be removing it and using it on another build. I need maximum adjustability on this one for concealment and storage. All in all I still recommend this product.

Strike industries enhanced end plate and enhanced castle nut is truly the best one I’ve came across. I will buy this part again on my next build, it also really looks nice. Build quality of the castle nut was way better then mil-spec and the end plate was as well.

I have not put it on yet but look great. It came in the mail really fast and very well put together. I can't wait to put it on my gun with all my red strike parts that I have coming in the mail as well.

seems to fit snug and secure to lower aND buffer.the blue is the right shade ..this has been a problem in the past... .the set screw for the takedown pin dent is freakin brilliant.I would deffinatley recomend anything with the strike industries name on it.

This fits perfectly with a P.O.F. anti-tilt buffer system. Adds a nice look to the gun as well as functionality with the QD location. I used it on a .308 build with an Aero Precision lower and upper. It doesn't require staking apparently since there's no mention of it in the installation instructions. Just torque to 40 in. lbs.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I ordered this. I was mostly looking for something to match the build (in red). What caught my eye was that it also had the sling holding ability. My expectations were greatly surpassed. The quality and finish are excellent. This made a great addition to my build.

I shoot off of the left shoulder most of the time and have two other MSR's with end plates that have a Quick release receptacle on either side. I really like the one receptacle in the center much better. First it is a lighter design and the extension moves the swivel on the sling out of the way. The contrasting color helps make the rifle easy to pick out in the safe. the quality is apparent and covering the threads on the buffer tube make for a neat package. All future builds will have this end plate installed.

This castle nit is pretty cool looking and seems to work really well. I used it with a viper micro stock and stroke industries turn and it all works well together. Pretty light weight as well if you are looking to save weight

This is a well made AR end plate and castle nut. However, this is not the new Tribus model that comes with a set screw to lock in the castle nut. Buyer beware. If you are looking for just an upgrade to stock castle nut end plate with QD attachments, this will work. I think the new Tribus model is a bit better engineered with the set screw. Tribus will cost about $6 dollars more.
