Strike Industries AR15 Enhanced Castle Nut & Extended End Plate
The TRIBUS is next iteration of our previous AR-ECN&EEP. New features include two addition QD mounting points added to the left & right side of the extended end plate. Totaling in 3 QD mounting points. Another BIG improvement is the added anti-rotation castle nut feature. Once installed, use the set screw to prevent the castle nut from backing out during weapon usage. The TRIBUS is available in our anodized color line.
Introducing another innovation from Strike Industries, an improvement on the ergonomics and function of the already Enhanced Castle Nut and Extended End Plate system. The revolutionary Tribus includes a genius mechanism that allows the castle nut to have full anti-walk capabilities. The days of the castlenut unthreading itself from the buffer tube are over. Also, with the threaded set screw design, there will never be a need to stake through the endplate and buffer tube, permanently ruining your endplate. The new design includes the steel castle nut that has been lengthened to match the extended end plate, supporting more of the receiver extension’s threaded area, and improving aesthetics. The extended end plate features a Quick Detach sling swivel mount, pushed back away from the webbing of the primary hand. An additional two mounting points have been added on either side, allowing true user preference in terms of mobility and dexterity when it comes to sling position. This allows weapons manipulations in tight spaces and under stress, without the startling pain that can result from a pinched hand when using a sling attached to a standard, flat QD end plate.
Required Tools: The castle nut was meant to be installed using an adjustable or fixed spanner wrench. A traditional Ar multitool or wrench can work but may cause damage to the castle nut.
