When you think of Liberty Suppressors, you dont normally think of AR-15 parts, but we do offer a couple of things that apply to our suppressors and help our users get the most out of there guns. This buffer is one of those items.
When we set out to make our own buffer, it was from a need to have one that was heavier than stock but not overly complicated with a ton of interchangeable parts or things that can get lost easily. We also wanted it to be completely reliable as well. This meant that we could not make it to where it could be altered by the end user and needed to fit into the existing buffer footprint perfectly.
We also wanted it to have a sort of “signature” of our making, so we chose to make it out of stainless steel, the same that we have used is some of our silencers in fact, and it needed to look good to boot. We achieved both of these with room left over. This buffer comes in at 4 ounces which is about 50% heavier than stock and this slows down the action somewhat to reduce the effects of over gassing. We documented the results in video and it is noticeable in that the ejection angle is modified when the heavier buffer is used. This also smooths out the recoil cycle in the firearm making it easier to control and faster follow up shots and such…
This design is a simple drop in modification that simply requires the end user to remove the old buffer from the carbine and just insert the new one in its place. It is literally that simple. No muss or fuss, just drop it in and have better performance. What could be simpler?
The extra weight makes it easier on the user when it comes to excess gasses as well since it delays the unlocking of the rifle making more of the gasses go out the muzzle instead of the ejection port. There you have it, some simple reasons to add the Liberty Suppressors carbine buffer to your AR15 style rifle. Till next time, keep your powder dry!
