Previously I asked about the difference in feel of the spring strength and got no bites...


I've swapped the 6-pos stock on my Bushy M4 with an A2 stock and can feel the A2 buffer spring is softer than my original Carbine's spring. Will this present any reliability problems? I've shot about 200 rounds thru the rifle with the A2 stock without issues but wondered if there's anything to look out for?

The weaker spring doesn't alter the bolt's unlocking does it? Is this why the A2's buffer is larger?


So I'll ask another way...

Do the rifle and carbine buffer set ups run the same?
Does the bolt operate at the same speed?
Does the bolt stay "Locked up" the same time with either set up?

Is it my imagination or is the rifle buffer set up slower, "sproingier", and easier to pull the charging handle back?

TIA,
Jeff

you are putting too much emphasis on the buffer system... the function is more in the pressure and timing of the gas system, but yes you are correct that the rifle system is *softer* than the carbine, it does not need to fight the higher bolt velocities of the carbine...

I follow what you've just said Gunzilla, but I guess my question should have been "Is there no long term problems running the softer rifle recoil system in a carbine gas system?"

Thanks for the response


eklikwhoa, thanks for the links... those will keep me busy for awhile
