All my rifles are MOD2.
Some lowers do have a BAD lever installed- I may remove those. I just find it odd that with standard buffers and regular old crappy 4 dollar mil-spec springs, they function beautifully with the BAD installed. Any time I get fancy with different springs, I have issues.
And again....they function fine, right up until I really square up and lean into it, or fire with the stock braced against a solid object- which if anything, I feel would aid in locking back.
Rifles are clean and lubed properly.
I definitely think you should remove the BAD lever.
If you have the rifle against a solid object, it is more likely to cause the BHO lever to 'bounce around' and cause it to not contact the BCG properly, especially with the BAD mounted.
Kind of similar to how there will be more carrier bounce if you have a HBAR barrel, when compared to a LW barrel, as the carrier has to impact a more massive stationary/inert object.
The massive and heavy object would not want to move as easily as a LW barrel/object, and which the BCG will have a greater 'rebound' upon impacting the opposing object.
Forgot to mention, I did have a bunch of failure to BHO if I have a H3 buffer, Okay 20rd USGI mag w/ black follower, dirty & dry gun, when I strap it down on a rifle sled.
However, if I take it off the sled, the failure to BHO disappears.
On the sled, with same setup, same dirty & dry gun, with Okay 30rd USGI w/ Magpul follower, no problem with BHO.
