Default Swapping uppers on a lower ok?

I've done it without ever having a problem.

But as I think about it you could POSSIBLY have a cycling problem..

For instance if you're running a 20" rifle length upper with a really lightweight buffer..
And then you switch to a 14.5" carbine length system, you might find you're cycling too fast..

In this case you could keep a heavier buffer around..

This is just an example and may not be what you're doing...just saying that it's possibel
