I thought I'd heard em all but coonfinger is a new one for me. Had to look it up lol.

Trout, if I were you I'd shoot the gun first. That way, when you replace the trigger, you'll appreciate it more.

If anyone is interested

Never Shot Spikes Tactical Spider Complete Lower. Factory lower except for the Daniel Defense Pistol Grip ( Installation is simplified by the fact the integral trigger guard doesn’t require a roll pin so there is a reduced chance of damaging the lower receiver) and stock. Yes I broke one of the Trigger Guard Pivot Pin Housings (Will not effect function of the lower) $200.00. Sights and Stripped Lower in picture are not available

I've got 5 Gen2 PMAGS for trade. I'm interested in 6.5 Creedmoor ammo, 9mm ammo, a 5/8-24 muzzle brake, or a reloading press.

True. That's why I added creed and not just 6.5. I fgured if anyone had the stuff I'm looking for, they'd know it was in a 10 platform rather than a 15.

Try the Flash Stealth muzzle break. It is 2 piece unit and if you use it a certain way you're able to shoot w/o ear plugs. Of course you can use it for cleaning your barrel too.

I don't have one but it says Colt Competition which is a totally different division from their LE/MIL division. The le/mil. Version will be much more robust.

I'm on the lookout for stuff I have discarded in the past. My next project on the bench is an A1 clone. At the present all I have is the lower. If anyone has an old-skool carry handle upper, complete or stripped, please let me know.

I have a smith and Wesson AR15 that I pulled all the "furniture" aka bolt ons off, and replaced them all with LaRue tactical stuff. Hand gaurd, adjustable stock, and hand grip are available... I believe the stock stuff is Magpull but not sure.

I'd like to try out an H or H2 buffer if anyone has one to sell/trade. I hate to buy them at $30 each knowing they may not work.

I'll have a charging handle to donate to someone when my BCM gunfighter shows up this week.

What problem are you trying to resolve with the heavier buffer? Are rounds cycling too quick or are you wanting to decrease the felt recoil? A heavier buffer will do both slow down the cycle rate and reduce felt recoil.

I run a H2 in the suppressed pistol and can rest the buffer tube on my nose and fire off a few rounds without it bothering me.

If you get one, be sure and go with a quality one and not some cheep piece of crap!

Gun is a 14.5" mid-length with a carbine buffer, it runs 100% with 5.56 and .223 ammo, but is ejecting brass at 2:00 and the recoil is more than I expected from hearing how soft 14.5 mids typically shoot. It has a pinned FSB which I'd like to keep for reliability sake rather than going to an adjustable gas block.

I wish companies that made them would send out a "test kit" of various buffers for a $10 rental fee, then you could purchase the one that runs best.
