    Default want to make an "H" buffer..

    What you guys using in your stacks? No I don't have any tungsten around but I wanna play with the weight since I can't find any Colt ones lately. I remember when I worked for a c3 dealer in the 80's they were into removing weight to increase cyclic rate. I'm looking to slow unlocking on my semi's to find the sweet spot on port pressure and bolt wear. Any thoughts since the h buffers aren't available locally and I just like to think?

    Tungsten powder is one way to do it. Take out the roll pin, remove the guts, fill with tungsten powder till you get the correct weight. I don't know the correct weight right off the top of my head, but this should be enough for 2, so go in half with someone else for the cheap route! http://www.amazon.com/Dynacraft-Tung.../dp/B00LU0W5CA If someone knows where to get the correct weights please post.

    And yes we could just buy a heavy buffer but where's the fun in that?

    Exactly dew! LOL! A bunch of folks just throw money. Some folks like us enjoy thinking about it. Port diameter,gas tube length,carrier weight,buffer weight,spring tension...

    Makes us think. If you think about it thinking is good. Till you over think and you just end up thinking and not doing.

    BTW. Where you get tungsten powder? I thought the whole idea was the spacers slapping at lock up. I get the mass ratio but every thing I've studied for the centerfires needed that last bit of oomph. Not the 9mils. Different animals.

    I was thinking of ordering some from Amazon. The way I understand it is that the tungsten powder doesn't fill up the cavity all the way and it moves back and forth like the weights. I have no personal experience so I could be wrong. but Spikes tactical H2 works this way. Lower Parts - Spike's ST-T2 Heavy Buffer [SLA00T2] - $37.95 : Spikes Tactical If I order some I'll send you what I don't use.

    That would be cool! And thank you for the offer. Was thinking about hardened drill rods cut to length with nylon spacers too.
