Hey all, thanks for looking at my question!
Ok, I have a DPMS LR 308, and the only modification I've done is to slap on a new buttstock. It's the CAA SRS Pictured below:
Since the install, the buffer inside the rifle has been too long for the bolt to catch with an empty mag. this is because the screw that holds the stock in place is too long and is extending too far into the inside of the buffer tube. I will be getting a new screw (if I can find one) that is shorter to take care of this problem.
My question is more about the buffer. Currently, I have a buffer that is 5.285 inches long. I am wanting to buy an Enidine Hydraulic buffer, but was wondering if there would be any problems if I put in a 3.25" or 2.5" buffer instead of the standard length 5.25" buffer.
Can I put a smaller buffer in the standard A2 buffer tube without causing any problems with bolt carrier? If any, what problems might arise from a shorter than standard buffer?
Thank you for your replies!
