i run 2 blue WC 1911 buffers (not sanded, full thickness, in my mini 14 ranch rifle. everything works fine, no cycling probs, eeding issues etc.
but one thought came to my mind, hoe you can help me with that:
the rearward movement of the slide assembly (due to the added thickness of the WC buffer on the gas pipe) is a little less than without the buffer, so will the bolt unlock prematurely and is this dangerous?
the bolt locks completly into place and the slide assy has play, before rotating the bolt. but less play than before (due to the buffer).
i read that hundreds of users have 2 WC 1911 buffers installed in their minis, so i guess prematurely unlocking / opening of the bolt is no problem, but what would you say?
