I'm thinking my next build will be with one of these uppers. Does anyone have one? Is the recoil really bad? Do I need to modify my buffer spring or buffer? Any info on this setup or any of the others (.243 WSSM or .223 WSSM) would be greatly appreciated?

I doubt the recoil would be bad. It's a semi auto rifle that should produce pressures similar to a .22-250.

Otherwise, I don't know. You may find better luck getting answers at the Oly Arms Owner forums. www.oa2.org/forums/index.php

I've seen them up close, but I've never shot one.

The recoil is quite mild on all of them. I shoot a fair amount of factory 120 grain, .25 WSSM rounds for feed/function tests. They are leaving a 22" barrel at just under 3000 FPS and the recoil is quite mild.

There is no modification necessary for the lower receiver. You can switch between .223/5.56 and WSSM in 20 seconds.

The whole line of factory ammunition offered by Winchester for both .223 WSSM and .243 WSSM will fit in the magazine. From what I understand, (I say this because I have only had the 120 grain loads available to me) the rounds above 110 grain in the .25 WSSM are too long for the magazine. Like I said, I am using the 120 grain loads for feed/function tests, but I am seating the bullets back about .015". The accuracy and function has been good, without any signs of excess pressure.

I don't have a lot of experience with the .223 WSSM but the .243 and .25 have proven to be very accurate and feed and function on all of them has been excellent.
