    Thats the thing, .5 oz for twice the cost? I'd like to think maybe the body is tungsten and the internal weights are normal

    Slash accomplishes the extra weight by making the body out of steel. I couldn’t tell you for sure, as I don’t know the exact composition of the H9. Some of it is, I’m sure, the natural “Surefire” brand markup, but some is likely the material costs as well, Surefire does mention the use of “heavy metal” (I assume they would simply say it was tungsten if it was, as tungsten is fairly common in heavy buffer) and tungsten is not cheap to begin with, at least relative to steel and aluminum, I wouldn’t be surprised if Surefire was using a more... exotic solution, as $250 for a buffer seems extreme, even for Surefire, but I couldn’t say for sure.

    The H9 is probably a tungsten alloy body with tungsten powder inside. Or tungsten sliding weights.

    Heavy metal (in the manufacturing sense) almost always refers to tungsten alloys. If it was tungsten carbide it would just be called carbide.

    I'd love to bring it back. Let's try it. Here's my contribution- a tan HK416D clone.

    I thought I would post this here. I think it is appropriate. Garand Thumb is an active duty USAF spec ops guy.

    I am rather puzzled that he speaks about 416 as if he has no access to current spec rifles, which he should have as active duty SF.
    Namely the fact that HK lowers are fully compatible to any pmag etc, while he suggests that HK lowers require emags etc.

    A bit puzzling to me, because of course he may have a civilian gun in the video, but he should have the firsthand knowledge of 2012 and later spec guns.

    The newer A5 and newer aren't that prolific in the states. And any that might be in use in the US aren't going to be showing up as YouTube fodder.

    We all aren't on the Euro-cutting edge as you make it appear to be.

    I am well aware they are not (possible) to be in legal civ possession as any former mil/le 416 that were moved to the civilian market are pre2012. But for Mil/LE users, said weapons are of course available since ~mid2013 in the US, so about 5 years. Thats not cutting edge and thats something one would expect an SF solider to have had time to play with. Of course he is not going to have that in his YT vid where he would use a civilian gun, but hence my question, it should be available in his line of work.
