I was over at a friends house and he
found a 50 caliber can full of A2 parts
from a former life. In the bottom were
a half dozen or so rifle buffers. He's
going to cut a couple down to carbine
length for spares and add tungsten
buffer weights to make a "bubba" H3
buffer.

I told him the spring flange on a rifle
buffer would not allow a carbine to
cycle properly. Maybe with a gas block
that's adjustable but not with a otherwise
stock gun.

SO my question is, will this work or is
CheapS**t Charlie wasting his time and
ruining 2 rifle buffers.

I have a Windham carbine with an A2 stock on it. It runs just fine on a rifle buffer.

Must have just bought a band saw or something that he needs to justify to the house boss. Buffers are dirt cheap for the most part. Why even risk screwing up a gun.
