Just got done shooting my new Beowulf. The way I'm running it now is with a standard carbine spring and a Spike's ST-T2 buffer. Recoil is a bit intense. Would adding a Sprinco Red or blue extra power spring do anything for me?

Carbine or rifle buttstock? I use a .308 hydraulic buffer in my carbine. Recoil is better. Also takes some of the pressure off the optics. Just a thought. My recoil went from similar to a 12ga. To more like 20ga. Maybe less.

On my Beowulf, I am using a A2 buttstock with a Limbsaver recoil pad. The pad helps but it still rattles your teeth

I 've built more of an M-4 with a magpul ACS, Nothing but the rubber pad that it comes with. I did go with a .308 hydro buffer. It does seem to tame it a bit. Might be worth investigating the rifle version. How about a muzzle brake? I also went with the A.A. factory muzzle brake. Without a brake you would also feel more of the recoil.

It has a Pepperpot Muzzle Brake on it but I ordered a King Armory Muzzle Brake that arrived today.

It is running a collapsible stock with a Magpul CTR with the enhanced buttpad. Inside the buffer tube is a Spikes T2 buffer and a standard carbine spring.

I might just live with it. If it works then why worry about it?

This is how she looks at this point in time. I should have all the parts I ordered installed by next weekend.



This is a video of my not so great attempt at a 10rd magazine dump. I know there is no optic on the rifle I was just running it to make sure it worked.

Edit: In the video I should like crap because I'm trying to fight off a sinus cold. LoL!

Very nice. Yeh you might have a point in having to live with it. Sounds like a pretty nice setup at any rate.

Thanks a bunch. Wait till you see what I have ordered for her. I should have it all on within, at most, a month,

I use a Wolf +10% spring and an MGI RRB buffer in mine. It does make a noticeable improvement in perceived recoil. A muzzle brake is a waste of money on a Beowulf IMHO. With only around 40 grains of powder and around 400 grain bullets and a half inch bore even the best muzzle brake will only be maybe 5% effective.

What is the weight of that buffer?

I think I am going to try one of those Wolff extra power springs. , For $12.99 @ Midway, it's worth a try, Customer reviews are encouraging. I am using a A2 rifle stock with the already big and heavy buffer

Spike has the ST-T3 buffer @ 154g/5.4oz too

Additionally, the spring loaded buffer bumper lessens the hard stop at the rearmost point of travel on the buffer/carrier.

I have the MGI buffer thought it helped. I will try the new wolf spring too.

Yeppers. Wait time was pretty long to get it.

I ordered all three types of Sprinco buffer spring. I ordered the White(standard), Blue(stronger), and the Red(strongest) to try them all out. I really like the Spikes T2 buffer because it uses poweder and the weights don't bounce around and cause all that noise.

Lets talk about this buffer here. Fill me in on the details. Why would someone in my shoes choose this over one of your HSS Buffers?
