What's the difference and which one is better? Thanks.

Anybody? I need to know soon because I want to buy a collapsable stock today and need to know which one to go with.

Using the "H" buffer won't hurt anything, so you might as well get it.

Come to think about it, I could just get both

Get the 9mm buffer, weighs the same/similar to the std rifle buffer. Std CAR and "H" weigh less.

I use the "H" buffer in my M4's I can feel a slight difference with them over the regular CAR buffer. IMO, The "H" buffer helped lighten the felt recoil a little, It feels like there is a little less "shock" on my cheek bone against the colapsable stock when firing, but mine are 14.5" SBR's. With a 16" AR I never felt the need for a "H" buffer.

Will an H or 9mm buffer lessen recoil on a 16'? Any reliability issues?

I use a 9mm buffer in my 16". I feel a great deal of reduced recoil. My GUESS is that it that it may improve reliablility slightly. Would make sense if it did; the increased weight would equal more momentum when slamming the B/C back into position. Can someone confirm this hypothesis?

I would say yes as thats why I got a "H" buffer to begin with.So the extra weight of the 9mm buffer would be a benefit if not then there wouldnt be buffers like the H2 or even heavier foir .223

Colt LEO carbines come with the H even though they're semi-auto. I'm sure if the 9mm buffers were much better and as reliable, they would probably be the standard.
