To remove the stock pull down on the stock latch until the latch pin clears the channel in the tube, then pull the stock off.
No unscrewing necessary.
Hope that helps.
Don't buy a new one, file the old one.
You want the tube long enough such that it retains the pin & spring but short enough such that it won't prevent the upper from being attached to the lower. A few judicious strokes with a file and after reattaching, everything fitted. That's what I did with one tube.
The stock Bushmaster tube does not, and looks like what you are describing.
Should work either way, if you are not happy with standard parts you might try ADCO firearms and see if they have the LMT tube.
I would go shoot it first and see if there are any problems.
