I bought one a few years back and no matter what I do to modify it the brass bounces back off the netting. It is better than showering my neighbor with brass but not much better.
Wish I knew a better alternative .................without having to carry more heavy gear to the range.
I don't know if you shoot from the bench or not but this works pretty good for me. I carry all my stuff to shooting bench in it and then it doubles as my brass catcher. I hate the mesh bag things
That is incredible. Have you tried the adjustable gas key compared to having an adjustable gas block? I've been curious about adjustable blocks but didn't want to go that route for a few reasons, cost one of them.
IF, you wanted to try something... maybe consider a Tubbs 5.56 Flatwire recoil spring.
And you could limit gas flow with a Black River Tactical gas tube... they constrict the gas flow at the gas tubes opening.
after the gas tube. It’ll slow down the carrier speed but doesn’t do anything to reduce the schmootz dumped into the action after tube and key separate.
I have measured the gas bushings in a few Mini-14's and they were 0.080" to 0.100" which is way too big. There is a cottage industry that make smaller bushings for the Mini. I find mine works well with a 0.046" bushing.
The 6.8 oz. buffer is with an adjustable stock, not the longer tube fixed stock. And yes, I use the 6.8 in rifle length gas systems 18" and 20" guns, with adjustable stocks.
It wasn’t intentional, but the combination I made of a PSA standard carbine lower (not exactly sure which buffer they used) with a 20” upper works perfectly and also ejects brass very softly right at 3 o’clock.
Similarly, I have a 22 inch barrel (30RAR) with rifle length gas system that works just find with a carbine receiver extension, buffer, and spring.
It's not buffer vs buffer. It's buffer+BCG vs buffer+BCG.
Bah! Takes maybe $60 and 20 min. for a novice to install an AGB. Last one took me 5 shots to dial in, also a JP. Worth every dollar and then some.
I’m pretty sure I have the heavier bolt carrier. I’ll double check to be sure.
