Not a pistol buffer tube. Yes it is short hence the buffer being built into the carrier. Have not compared, but I believe the spring itself is a carbine spring I'll have to check.

The buffer tube is shorter than pistol buffer tube.

Think about it. No way possible for a standard BCG and buffer to operate in that limited space.

How's the breakdown? Is it even possible to pivot the upper on the front take down pin? Or do you have to remove both td pins and slide the upper + bolt onto the lower?

No sir it will not pivot. You are correct in that you do have to pull both pins and slide it in that way. And even that way would not work with the American Gold trigger due to the housing shape. I won't even go into what I had to do to get it assembled with that trigger. Let's just suffice to say that disassembly to clean would be a huge PITA. So I took the WMD NiB-X trigger group out of my blackout and put the American Gold in it. Now I can disassemble and clean by pulling to takedown pins, which is what I do when I clean my AR's anyway.

Here's a pic of the butt end of the stock. How'd you like to catch this to the face or head?

Texasgunner, can you post some pics of the bolt carrier/recoil assembly? I understand they made a "few" changes to make it work, but their website doesn't show too clearly what was modified. Awesome looking rifle by the way! Let us know how the cheek weld is with this configuration...

How much did they hit you up for on import tax? The website said it had to be paid to delivery carrier but was vague on the amount?
