    Wouldn't want you to feel left out, I might have a commercial buffer tube available...really cheap.

So if you see both sizes understand where that comes from. FYI.
    Huh. How are there "smaller A5 tubes"? AFAIK, all A5 compatible receiver extensions are the same length and will give essentially the same LOP, the only differences are the number of stock positions they have.
    Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.

    It wasn't a matter of smoothness. RSilvers quantified the differences. Believe me, I don't go tearing off Carbine REs to switch to A5. The gist was that the rifle buffer system is optimal on a correctly gassed AR. The A5 system is effectively the rifle system. And the Carbine with H2 buffer was quantified as the closest set up to the rifle/A5.

    Got it, thanks. I had a Colt A4 that I had trouble reaching the pedals with so I managed to acquire an issue carbine conversion for it. It came with an H6 buffer but I remember using an H2 also. It had Colt 4 pos RE and carbine spring, and type II A waffle stock. I traded it to a good friend with normal length arms, along with all the original parts. He still hasn't changed it back lol. It was just as smooth and reliable as the rifle setup, and a damned accurate gun. Kinda wish I still had it, but it has a good home.

    I installed a Colt endplate (staked beautifully in 2 places) on mine today and chucked that Magpul abomination in the trash. I also installed a Colt ambi safety while I was at it. Mine is now returned to full Colt glory!

    Woah woah woah woah woah. You ain't gettin away without pictures of yours there bud.

    ETA: Good job on the removal btw....also, with as many LE as I "think" there are on here, you'd think one of them would recognize their department rifles with those distinctive magpul end plates and fill us in on their respective provenance.

    Although maybe they're just being quiet about it given none of us were very happy with them.

    I have tried and tried and tried to post pics on here. It never works. This is the only forum I have problems on. Is there some trick to it here?
