Will I be fine with a carbine buffer tube, carbine flat wire spring & carbine buffer on it?
I didn't think a rifle length spring would work with a carbine tube
Don't play with buffer weights, put the correct heavier buffer in first. A "rifle gas" system is also spec for a 20" barrel - is that what is being used?
18" barrel with rifle gas system. Plan is to go with a carbine buffer tube & run the Luth-AR MBA 3 stock. The rifle length stock has too long LOP for the prism scope & my comfort
The Vltor A5 buffer tube is slightly longer than a standard carbine buffer tube.
I caught that,VLTOR A5 is an odd duck length, why I never got one as I like "standard" things .
Then H3 buffer should do it?
It's a good place to start.
I'm not sure about using a rifle length spring. The problem isn't the distance the buffer travels (that always remains the same) but spring compression around the buffer. Compressing a rifle spring around a carbine buffers compresses the spring tighter increasing wear. If the coils impact, it can damage the spring.
