Installation Instructions:

Firstly you will need to remove your stock and original buffer tube by simply unscrewing it from the rear of the receiver. Thread the new buffer tube into the back of the receiver being VERY careful to get it right the first time, do not tighten the buffer tube if you are not sure you have threaded it right. (Pro tip #187: when threading the buffer tube, turn it the wrong way until you hear a click and feel the threads meet, then turn it the correct way). You will then need to salvage the end cap from your old buffer tube to use for the new tube. Reinstall the stock and away you go! Bear in mind that depending on the type of battery you try to install, you may need to put the battery inside the buffer tube before screwing it into the receiver, and fold the tamiya connector away into the back of the receiver.
