BEST BUFFER WEIGHT?

Post by 3IfByAir » Tue Jan 12, 2021 9:29 pm

Hey guys and gals. I'm currently building my first AR15 (I already own an off-the-shelf one). Here's what it's got:

-9" barrel
-pistol length gas system
-NiB bcg
-will run suppressed maybe 80% of the time?
-mostly subs
-if I'm missing any needed info let me know

I want to make this thing as quiet as possible, while balancing other requirements...so it'll most likely be a JPSCS buffer system. I understand almost everyone says go with an H2, but on JPs website it says go with a standard H if it's specifically .300blk subs. So does anyone have any real world experience with either or both? I'll probably end up ordering the 5 pack of springs too... Thanks in advance!

Are you going to be using an adjustable gas block?

You could get an adjustable weight buffer and if it needed changing you already have the solution in hand.

Any idea what size the gas port is?

I am working on an 8" build and I am seeing ranges from 0.099 to 0.110. Mos Tek is supposed to be making my barrel this week and calling me to go over port size.

I got a standard carbine buffer to start out with but my suppressor is in jail for quite sometime still so I won't be able to do any meaningful function testing for months.
