I have an AR15 and wanted to know; if I take it in freezing conditions can this cause the inertia mechanism in the buffer to condensate then freeze?

Cold

Not sure what you mean. There is nothing in the buffer that will act differently when frozen. If condensation were to build up in the upper receiver or buffer tube I do not think it could cause much of a problem. If you left water drip into the action as it froze you could get enough ice inside to impare proper function but, that would be beyond extreme.

Never had a problem here. Use the correct lubrication for the bolt and carrier. I have left mine out in 30 below zero temps, and then fired it without issue.
