I should know this, but I guess I'm brain locked this morning.

I have a heavy buffer for a short collapsible stock tube. I am going to change it back to the standard fixed stock, and I wonder, can I leave the heavy buffer in the longer tube?

Will it bottom out and screw up the tube/receiver?

I want to use the heavier tube, as I'm going to be shooting a friends Lightning Link, and so I want to keep the ROF down.

I would think I could run a shorty heavy buffer in either set up, but not the long buffer in the short tube.

Sorry, as I said I'm brain farted today.

Do not do that, the carbine buffer is too short (gas key will bottom out on rear of reciever and I think it would be ugly.) The only way this could possibly be done would be with a spacer of proper length installed in rec. extension. You should stick to the proper buffer designed for each stock. Just my $.02.

Always use the carbine buffer with a carbne buffer tube and a rifle buffer with a rifle buffer tube.
