they do it cuz its cheaper.
the weight of the buffer doesnt offset the gas beating on the bolt carrrier components. the gas goes into the key at higher pressure and slams the carrier open harder which can hurt the bolt lugs extractor and key more than needed.
the DI system is STILL a piston design but the bolt acts as the piston.
