Well so much for that. I wanted to soften the recoil a little so the kids could shoot it more comfortably. Guess it's a standard rifle length buffer for me.
Unless someone has a better idea?
Like maybe the Enidine Hydraulic Recoil Buffer - .308 AR - fixed stock.
I use the Enidine in my Ruger SR-556C and it's fantastic. I used to have it in my Daniel Defense M4V4, but when I got my new Ruger I wanted to put all the nice goodies (JP Ent. spring as well) on it during the initial break in period. After tossing the stock Ruger's spring/buffer in my DD and shooting them both back to back, even though my DD has the PWS 5.56 brake on it and the Ruger the A2 flash hider, the Ruger's recoil seems more mild and you don't have that god awful springy sound with a cheap spring/buffer.
Actually thanks for reminding me, I need to order another spring + Enidine buffer for my other rifle :)
