I'm building a 16" superlight A2 with 4 position CAR stock for the wife. I've read these light rifles have a snappier recoil and it is advised to replace the standard buffer with a 9mm buffer.
My question is, will the 9mm buffer be my best choice? How does it compare with a "heavy"buffer or even the MGI hydraulic buffer?
I need an education please. Thanks
there is no comparison between the 9mm(colt is what i have) to the mgi rrb.
the mgi has the plunger mechanism that, in my own words of description, "absorbs" the recoil. i have one in all of my rifles and its great. in my bushmaster superlight its great, with the lighter bbl. you tend to have more muzzle rise at least thats what i noticed but the mgi does the job and keeps you on target. a added plus is you get the mgi d-fender ring with the mgi buffer so all of my rifles have them installed as well.
twl is the mgi rep here and is a great guy to deal with.
heres a link comparing the mgi to the eindine.
