    Just received my 10.4 back from nitriding. Same results with HK buffer spring / H2 combo / SDN-6 / M193. Will try H3 and report results.

    welded 14.5 gas block + H3 +stock buffer + SDN6 + M193 ran like a top supp and unsupp

    My son just came back for leave and his MR556 Upper had came back from Marvin Pitts of Nefarious Arms where it was chopped to 10.4, re-profiled, nitrided and a Surefire Warcomp added. Well unfortunately test firings of 24 rounds didn’t go well. The bolt carrier is short cycling. It extracts the round @ about 3 o’clock, but doesn’t go back far enough to pick up the next round in the magazine, or lock back on an empty magazine. I came home and compared it to my 10.5 inch M-16 and found that the MR 556 buffer weighs 5.1 ounces compared to my H2 buffer that weighed 4.6 ounces. The HKMR556 buffer spring was approximately a quarter inch shorter in length then my M-16 buffer spring. However the HK MR 556 Spring feels stiffer. I don’t feel that the ammunition is the issue. We were using federal 62 grain green tips. I have a hard time believing that it would be a gas port issue as everything I have read shows that the MR 556 rifle‘s are supposed to be over gassed... any ideas? The rifle was brand new before sending it off ...

    Use a M4 carbine spring for an immediate fix.

    Thanks for the reply. Is the MR556 spring heavier? It does feel a bit stiffer despite being slightly shorter.

    Yes, it is, for “reliability”, read round stripping power when dirty.

    Well, did some testing. W/ a Larue aka springco red carbine buffer spring, still a no go w/ standard buffer, H2 buffer and HK 5.1 ounce buffer, extraction at 3 o’clocK. With an LMT mil-spec buffer spring Hk buffer and h2 buffer, the gun cycles fine and extracted at 4 o’cloc As it should, BUT, it won’t lock back on an empty magazine....LMT mil-spec spring and standard buffer, it cycles, extracts 4 o’clock and locks on empty magazines... I’m saying Marvin should have opened the gas port.... seems under gassed at 10.4
