    Anything heavier than an H3 carbine buffer?

    Is there a carbine buffer that's heavier than an h3? For example something originally intended for 9 mil but might also work for 556?

    Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.

    THANKS! I had no idea! I had been told that the H3 was the heaviest.

    Thank you again!

    PWS makes a H4 with a steel body, and 3 tungsten weights.

    Why on God's earth would you want this? An H3 is already miserable. And screw heavybuffers.com. Those dolts make solid buffers that bounce like ping pongs. Anyone that clueless shouldn't be in the gun biz!

    If you need a buffer that heavy, you gun is overgassed.
    I make all my guns run on a H buffer.
    There are several products on the market that can enable you to acheive that.
    Putting in a heavier buffer is not the answer.

    Anything heavier than an H3 carbine buffer?

    Get a BRT gas tube sized appropriately. Fix the gas problem, don’t mask it with a 4 pound buffer.

    The only time, that I can think of, where a heavier buffer may be the solution, would be if you need to switch between subs and supers on a properly gassed 300 BO. You could have a lighter buffer for subs, and then swap in a heavier one for supers.

    I generally agree, but I left the door open for the possibility that the OP was doing some custom configuration or caliber.
