If I put an A2 buttstock on a 16", do I still use a carbine buffer and spring?

NO----- You use the applicable parts for the stock used. So use all rifle parts with the rifle stock.

That doesn't seem right. The gas system is the same, only changing the stock. If that were true why don't carbine and rifle use the same spring and buffer?

The standard buffer tube is about twice as long as the carbine buffer tube.
So it will need the longer buffer and spring.

If you try to use the short buffer and short spring you may damage your receiver.

I understand some of the POST BAN guns used a carbine stock on a full size buffer tube,
in that case I think you would be OK.

You can use an VLTOR carbine collapsable buttstock kit, then slip off the adjustable stock and slip an VLTOR A1 or A2 buttstock over the carbine receiver extension, it locks on with a pin.
