Thanks for the good info because I am trying to improve recoil, reliability, and accuracy.

You'll start to feel it get sluggish when the buffer is to heavy. When that happens go w/ one size lighter.

Probably not, how long is it? About 11"? +/- 1/2" If so, might as well go out and shoot different kinds of ammo and see how she does.

i agree with Q,

I don't see the need to change your timing. How does you rifle shoot as it is? Have you tried out low power and high power ammo through it? How does it cycle?

Not trying to hijack this thread but it runs in the same vein. I now have a problem I haven't had before this is going to pertain to Rock River .223 in a 16 inch barrel. I put a HD Sprinco spring Blue, HD 2 buffer and a FA BCG in at the same time. I went to the range and now I have a great single shot AR. Not totally unexpected, so I try all combinations to rectify this.
HD2 + std.spring
Std buffer + Blue Springco
Std. Spring + Std. Buffer
The only thing left to try is putting back the Stock BCG which is only marginally lighter than the FA, but I did not have it with me to try.
So here it is, are the RR that precise in the gassing that it won't allow any modifications? I know that RR are not over gassed but this seems a little extreme to me. Second guess could be that something has happened to the gas block, shifted or something similar that has restricted the gas flow. Is anyone running RR with mods of these types?
Thanks in advance for any FB...
Lou

Forgot to mention that all brass is ejecting but BCG is not picking up the next round.
