It's about 1/2 oz heavier than the H buffer and 1/2 oz lighter than an H2. I'd rather go with the H or H2 which has sliding weights not tungsten powder.

If your gun is functioning well why change the buffer? Most people want to improve the trigger.

It has already been improved along with most of the Major Parts inside the rifle such as BCG, LPK.

But the reason for upgrading the buffer is that i believe my rifle to be over gassed, im just trying to tame it a little bit, I was directed toward a heavy buffer to slow down the BCG and its not an expensive upgrade so might as well get it done

It's not that easy. Describe your rifle. Barrel length, gas length, action spring, current buffer, ammo you plan to use, etc.

The rifle is a cheapo DPMS Oracle with a 16in barrel 1/9, carbine length gas, standard carbine buffer from DPMS, Stock Buffer Spring DPMS, PSA Full auto BCG, ALG Combat Trigger, and for ammo anything from 50gr to 62gr mostly brass but will shoot steel Tula cause its decent range ammo but really just what can be found

Id get an H buffer, and if you want to add a little more resistance you can buy a new spring from there. T2 might be a little heavy for 50gr 223.

Normally the H2 functions well with 16" and carbine gas. Definitely hang on to the standard buffer which may be needed for weaker Tula. If you have to drop to an H you can swap a tungsten weight for a steel one in the H2 and standard and end up with two H buffers.
