Pictures of the GB in question?
i'm just going to test it out and see how she runs with it, if not, i will buy the stamp 10" vented GB... i was also reading that the BBL port needs to be open up once you go vented
Has a buffer ever worn out—should I look for a spare for the long term?
Also, I’ve heard of guns running a little hot and beating up the buffer, causing the plastic end to “mushroom.” If that happens do I replace the whole buffer, or just the plastic tip? If the latter, is a Colt plastic tip ok, or is there special HK magic in the tip requiring a factory part?
Guys with experience: HK416 10.4" Non-Vented upper, wearing a Surefire SOCOM RC2 can.
Is pairing a heavier buffer, such as the Surefire H9 with the HK action spring a mechanically safe, viable option for cutting down on the overgassing and excessive bolt speed? Are there any negatives to it, such as additional wear on components?
Take a look a the Vltor A5 buffer system. That might help you out.
