Does the length of the gas system (rifle,mid,carbine) have anything to do with what buffer weight or spring you use in the buffer tube?
Yes.Does the length of the gas system (rifle,mid,carbine) have anything to do with what buffer weight or spring you use in the buffer tube?
So what does this mean? I have a bunch of different buffer springs and a few weights but I can't mix and match? Is there a chart that gives some guidelines or something?Just don't go mixing components within your buffer tube assemblies with one another and you should be fine.
All of the above, and I think the general rule as far as buffer weight goes; use the heaviest buffer your particular gun will reliably cycle with the lowest powered ammunition you plan on using.Don't mix up rifle buffer components with carbine buffer components.
Ie don't put a rifle buffer or sprng into a carbine buffer tube.

Thats what I figured , anyone know the correct weights for each one ? I have a couple extra buffers and I wouldnt mind messing around with the melting pot and replacing some with lead weights and see how they run in the standard carbine . This wont be suppressed so i wont need to get up in the H2 or H3 weights but it would be good to know the differences for future reference
