    Yeah....that shouldn't happen. What kind of stock is it? Will it lock into place like that? Are there other stops in the stock? Is the castle nut staked?

    Otherwise, it should be good to go to shoot. You might want to look at another stock...very easy to replace.

    it looks like the nut under the lever you pull to slide the stock back and forth may be screwed up too tight and allowing the pin to come out too far when you pull the lever up which allows the buttstock to slide past the stop,there should be a roll pin in the slot cutout in the bolt that keeps the nut locked in place,that buttstock should not go past the end of the buffer tube

    First , my buffer tube measures approx 7" overall with about 1 " of thread showing behind the castle nut. The stock you have pictured does not appear to be correct for the M-4 style is is made to look like. The buffer tube should not stick out when the stock is collapsed.
    A good source of info on AR's is here http://www.ar15.com/forums/active.html
    Personally I would find someone who has a bit of experience in AR's to help you out with correcting your issues. a good place to start is the hometown forum on arfcom.
    Finally what the heck is all over the handguards and pistol grip? tape?

    Simple the the buffer tube is too long for that rifle. It appears to be a rifle length tube with an M4 style AR rear adjustable stock.

    Yep. What he said. Either buy a new buffer tube or a full size rifle stock.

    Yes, that was a good price. It is less than I paid for my used XM-15-E2S.

    It may be a too long buffer tube. The price is good as long as the barrel is'nt shot out. I bought the same gun in 1999 for around $950. At that time, it was illegal to have the collapsable stock, so they were pinned in position. When the law sunsetted, I removed the pin and had the same problem as you do. I just bought a 6 postion replacement stock and in 5 min., problem solved.
