    No buffer or spring required. Got me to thinking, I have the buffer and spring in mine, I could take them out and shave more weight! Duh! At least I don't believe its needed. I'll look when I get home.

    Thanks dew. The safe has been buried under a mountain of stuff while my wife's closet and the bedroom have been insulated and sheetrocked. Haven't been able to get to it through the shoes and outfits. Can't find my cammies either.

    I handled(fondled) one of the 22 specific polymer AR's at my last gun purchase. I was looking based on the price. The receiver and buffer tube were molded into a one piece unit. The STG 22 on the other hand felt about right but to heavy and expensive just because it came in the crate. And BTW and FWIW I did buy and install the largest approved post office approved mail box. Just for Sarco, Modulus Arms, Akmed the carrier and whoever else.

    I installed a bigger mailbox myself. My mail lady was so pleased!
    Anyhow, I stated earlier that my 22 ar weighed 4.6 lbs. That's not so. It's actually 5lbs, 8 oz. Without the buffer and spring its 5 lbs, 2 oz. Still pretty light.

    What kind of sights on the 22 dew? Did you go flat top with glass? I'm thinking 1-3 on a flat top. Did not know a polymer upper existed. Been checking it out.

    Flat top with standard front gas block sight base that I drilled holes in to lighten it up. A-2 type rear clamp-on, carved on to reduce weight. I could have went with a plastic set like a Magpul and come out lighter, but I had these in my parts bin so I used them to save some $.

    The parts bin/drawers and my impending future to house and lawn work has me in this predicament guys. Finally got the CMMG conversion out of the safe, You got it mtndew. It rests on the lower receiver and has nothing to do with the buffer. DOH! Perfectly fine H buffer I can use in another build. Somewhere in the clutter is an East German side folder I might add too. My predicament is the wifes retirement in 20 more days. I might be living in Astor FL. Kidding. Looking forward to the wife telling me what to do.

    Got a few pieces of plastic ordered. Supposedly the gen2 are better paper weights than the earlier ones. Hope I beat the rush or ban.
