wanna know if it's safe to use both an m-16 bolt carrier and a 9mm buffer in an ar-15 for rapidfiring to reduce recoil?

at the last shoot I was at there was an LMT m4gery with two-stage trigger.


I was able to get the rifle to keep up with the cyclic rate of an UZI. I'm wondering if I can use this combination of 9mm buffer and m-16 carrier safely for rapidfire out of an ar-15 without risk of the timing being off and the gun blowing up in my face or whatnot.

any intelligent input is appreciated.

I plan on building an LMT mid-length rifle using a sabre defense barrel later on this year. It's going to get a good workout with doubletaps tripletaps and all out magazine burns.

I use an M16 bolt carrier and an MGI rate/recoil reducing buffer (same weight as the 9mm buffer) in my rifle with no problems.

I have CMT F/A Bolt Carrier Groups & Colt 9mm Buffers w/Wolff Springs in 2 of my AR's.
1x Carbine
1x Mid-length
No problems whatsoever. Thousand's of rounds between the 2. Smooth action, no recoil,
Hope this helps

I run an lmt m16 carrier with a rock river arms 9mm buffer.

Once I put on a vltor receiver extension and lightly polished all sliding surfaces, the rifle became smooth as silk to shoot. Have not had any problems.

very cool. Then I'll assume it's safe as you all are able to still correspond on the board and haven't had your guns blow up....

I run 9mm buffers in all 3 my carbines with enhanced carriers..no problem and full size rifle recoil and mootheness out of the carbine.
