Battle Arms Development has developed a specialized receiver extension/buffer tube that they call the SaberTube. This SaberTube was designed to be functional, light weight, clean and elegant. This AR-15 component starts out life as a solid billet of 6061 aluminum. This aluminum is aircraft grade and known for it’s high tensile strength and low weight, making it the perfect material for the job. During the machining process, The external surface of the receiver extension tube is dimpled. This helps to remove excess weight will minimizing any rigidity loss. After the buffer tube is fully machined, it is then finished in a mil-spec type III class 2 hard coat anodizing. This finished process gives the SaberTube its black color and helps to increase corrosion resistance and wear resistance. The SaberTube is a few inches longer than a standard AR-15 carbine buffer tube but remains compatible with a mil-spec carbine buffer and buffer spring. The innovative design of the SaberTube also eliminates the need for a castle nut.
The AR-15 end plate included in this kit is another excellent Battle Arms Development product. The plate is machined from 7075-T6 aluminum and finished in the same hard coat anodizing as the SaberTube. This BAD end plate has a built in sling attachment point. The lower portion of the end plate and a center mounted QD sling swivel cup to allow you to clip in your QD compatible sling. This center mounting location will work equally well for left or right handed shooters and will also facilitate efficient should to shoulder transitions. To prevent your sling from becoming tangled, the integrated QD attachment point has a limited degree of rotation.
