The buffer I have from RRA has an H on it. I did not order a heavy buffer. When I called, the response was it was a normal buffer but they recieved some with the H on them. What should a normal CAR buffer weigh? I think I read the heavies were 5.5 ounces.

Is felt recoil different between the different buffers? Sorry, if this has been answered before, I didn't find much on it in a search.hug.gif

I just received a RRA M4 stock from Eagle Firearms the other day. My buffer doesn't have any marking on it at all. I wonder what the H is for.

Run to the post office and weigh it. The clerk will do it for you.

"H" should run approx 3.8, std CAR is approx 2.7/2.9

9mm buffer is typically 5.5ox, thats fine, it slight more than std rifle at 5.2oz

You should not be able to detect any recoil difference, only the rifle itself will when running full-auto does buffer weight come into play as to cycle rate.

Thank you. Will try it today.

If its a real H buffer, then you should feel lucky since many believe it to be a worthwhile upgrade to carbines. It helps to slow down the action a little, which helps with recoil/muzzle climb and reduces wear&tear on the rifle.

I run "H" buffers in all my carbines.

Here is some buffer info.

Ditto. Have 'em in my carbines.
