the one thing the jp system does is it eliminates the ar15 sproing. since i think the sproing is one of the neatest features of the ar15 series i didnt like the jp recoil system since it removes one of the cool idiosynchrosies of the gun.

If you won't be able to take advantage of the faster lock time then I'd just go with a quality M16 BCG like BCMs. It'll be cheaper and probably better overall. Since you have a BCM already why not try that BCG temporarily and see how it works. I'd skip the "cool" factor, just buy quality that truly works for you.

And by the way the heavier carrier should be smoother than a lightweight. Also longer lock time is a good thing, it's only milliseconds anyway.

Both good points thanks! I'll try the BCM BCG first. It's a ways off though as I'm just starting the build and this is my first one with stripped upper and lower. I'm looking forward to picking each part carefully and building the whole thing myself.
