  1. DIY Projects and Builds
    I am starting my first ar build and I wanted to make the rifle NY complaint. However, the new NY complaint stock uses a carbine buffer tube. Can you build a mid rifle set up with mid rifle buffer and buffer spring inside of a carbine buffer tube? I know most people say that you should only...
  2. The AR-15
    Did alot of searching and I cant find a definate answer,everyone seems to use them on pistol length.But I want to use a buffer tube with a foam cover on my rifle if its legal.
  3. The AR-15
    I'm trying to design a new buffer system for an AR. What are the lengths of the carbine and rifle length buffers?

  5. The AR-15
    Stock Pinning: Try To Remove Old Pin & Re-Pin New Or Just Get New Buffer Tube & Pin? So I got a new stock to replace my M4 stock on the M&P15. Some background: My current M4 stock is actually pinned and the castle nut is staked well. There is a little bit of a lip on the pin and I'm thinking...

  7. The AR-15
    I am 1 piece away from getting everything I need to build my first AR build. What buffer tube weight do I use? Not sure what is needed as far as info so I will tell you what I can. Here is a little about the build. 16 inch barrel, mid length gas system, spikes tactical BCG 5.56(nickle boron)...
  8. The AR-15
    when and why would you change buffer weight? i have seen rifle buffers(5 oz) in commercial tubes in a pinned carbine stock set ups and have seen 3 oz buffers in milspec tubes on carbine set ups,.................confused !!!
  9. The AR-15
    when you use a 7.62x39 upper on a std 5.56 carbine lower should you or do you need to use a heavier buffer because of the heavier charged load? i tried to put a 4 oz buffer in my .223 upper and it didn't feed right so i put the 3 oz weight back in and all was good so just wondering if the 4 oz...

  11. The AR-15
    I have a bushmaster xm 15, I went to put on a sling adapter (which does not fit) and after watching youtube for disassembly instructions I realized that my buffer tube does not have the same lock nut as many other I have seen (no need for a spanner wrench???) and that mine does not have the"rib"...

  13. The AR-15
    Has any one used these and have you had any issues with them. I used them in two rifles which wont cycle right now. One won't eject the rounds and the other jams the empty shell trying to discharge it. I put in a standard DPMS spring and didnt have the issue.
  14. The AR-15
    Sorry if this has been covered, I searched but didn't find exactly what I was looking for. I bought my first black rifle 3 weeks ago (an M&P 15 ORC) and have been on the customizing path. I ordered an Ace ARFX-E stock for it, is the existing buffer tube, buffer, and buffer spring compatible...
