    Why do you need to get the buffer tube out?

    Long pliers perhaps, or you could hammer (with the screwdriver) a new grip to the end.

    But did it fit in snug or was it able to wobble slightly, and have you tried pliers?

    Ask questions relevant thread please. Try to angle the screwdriver and make sure it is large

    Those questions are all relevant, long nosed pliers can work too if the screw is completely stripped, I know because I have used them for this same issue with my little bro's M4.

    I did this once...
    I ended up taking a sawzall to the buffer tube and cuttitng it as close to the screw as I could. Then drilled out a hole about 3/4 the size of the screw and about 1/4-1/2 in deep. After that, I used a screw removal bit with my drill at the lowest speed setting and tourqued into the hole I created and then put the drill in reverse and slowly took the screw out using the drill. Don't go too fast or you will rip the bit out. You could also try using a dremel with a cutting wheel attachment an turning the head of the screw into al flat head.
