I just put a 1" extension on my AR with the RRA LE stock and noticed that the CAR buffer rattles. I never noticed my A2 buffer doing this. Does thing have a loose counterweight to help reduce recoil?

For those interested, here is a picture. The RRA stock is much better with the 1" extension. [img]http://webpages.charter.net/jeff.hoeft/pics/Shorty.jpg[/img]

I have two CAR buffers here at my desk and they both rattle. One has a plastic body and it sounds like it's got bird-shot in it. The other had an aluminum body and it sounds like it's got two or three slugs in it. It also feels a little heavier than the other one. LL

Thanks LL, Mines aluminum and it feels like there are 1 or 2 "weights" in it.

Yes they rattle. The cheaper CAR buffers are filled with bird shot. The originals, and the high quality versions use thick, heavy washer-like parts.

Strange, my RRA "Improved Telestock" buffer is silent. I dunno.
