    I'm assuming it's Armalite style receiver extension and spring/buffer combo.

    From what I used and read it should be the most reliable and smoothest buffer system for a 308 carbine.

    Yep, it's an AR10 extension and buffer, ect.

    It may have just needed more lube. I'll be hitting the range again here soon. Probably not this weekend but the weekend after.

    Sounds overgassed to me, too. You want an A5 length receiver extension (which it sounds like you have), rifle length spring, and most likely an H3 buffer.

    Just double checked exactly what I have. It's a standard AR tube and spring with a CAR-10 buffer.

    I ran that setup initially, as well, and it wasn't anywhere near enough. The A5 helped a little, but was still a band-aid fix.

    Sorry for continuing to be a Debbie-Downer, I know you need to go shoot it some more before diagnosing anything. For me, I'm generally interested if I got a lemon or if yours indicates that's just how they're built.

    Well good to know. I doubt I'll make the range this week or weekend.

    Maybe next week. I have a shoot with some friends coming up again at the beginning of next month so I have that coming up at least.

    A car10 buffer is an H3 cut down in length and drops a tungsten weight, so it's lighter than an H2. Way too light for a 308, unless it's one of Slash's.

    I would definitely switch out the extension to an A5 length and use an H3 (not A5H3) with an armalite ea1095 spring. The one photo of ejection shows the bolt going forward before the case has barely cleared the port. It's cycling way too fast.

    Slippers, which A5 receiver do you recommend. I was going to go with a Vltor branded one but there's two different ones the re-10A5-SR and the just plain A5 receiver extension. Or do you have another recommendation?

    I have a couple made by Vltor but now prefer the BCM A5 extensions because they are machined much nicer, without any sharp edges.

    And they're available, so get the BCM A5 with the Armalite Spring (part #EA1095) and an H3 buffer... Or I've seen Springco red spring... Or would you recommend Slashs buffer? Sorry trying to compile all info in one post. I researched and couldnt find a simple, well informed post with everything

    I've used the slash XH but didn't notice any difference whatsoever in my LMT MWS. I sold it and stick to the H3. The Slash buffer is also criminally expensive. I don't like sprinco springs.

    BCM A5 extension, H3 buffer and a $6 EA1095 spring will do it.

    Guess, I'll make the change as well

    So much searching and research and this thread is all I ever needed. Thank you, I hope others can benefit from this information too...
