Does anybody have any comment on this buffer? I am toying with the idea of puting one in my "home brew" AR with a featherweight bbl. I would get the fixed one.
Do they really decrease the muzzle flip?
Any comments will be appreciated.
These will work ONLY with rifle length buffer tubes (per e-mails from Oly). No plans to create a carbine version. I have also heard that charging becomes very stiff with this buffer.
I'm currently running an MGI Reduced Rate Buffer (mechnical, not hydraulic). I love it. I did couple it with a 2x power spring as well. The downside is that they are heavy at just about 7oz (normal buffer is 4oz. I think). "twl" sells these (good guy).
The other option which I have no experience with, is an Endine hydraulic buffer.
I decided to go with the MGI as it was a super-low maintenence (i.e. none) option. No seals to break, etc. It's been working great in my 20" + carbine stock, and soon in my AR15.com SEBR (once broken in).
