Q: Is it safe to use with out adjustable gas block ? I ordered one of these and received it today ! It says it need to have an adjustable gas block to work or will it even work?

Asked by: David - 5/13/2023
A: The following is posted on the item description page from which you loaded the item into your shopping cart and purchased it:

"... Requires an adjustable gas system (either adjustable gas block or adjustable gas key/carrier)..."

We can't help it if you didn't see , read, or comprehend the information within the item's description. If the manufacturer says that an adjustable gas system is *required*, what would make you question if it safe to use without an adjustable gas system?

Q: What are the dimensions on this recoil buffer? It looks short with no rubber padding. I assume the design is to put so little gas into the system it doesn't actually need to buffer the recoil into the stock, just depress enough to return battery? Curious about OAL to use in Maxim PDW buffer.

Asked by: Joseph Wood - 12/9/2022
A: Each buffer is approximately 1.5 inch long. Thanks for the inquiry.

Q: What will happen if you use this buffer spring kit with a non adjustable gas block.

Asked by: Oscar - 2/6/2020
A: Since these buffers embody a mass reduction versus the normal buffer weight and since this buffer spring's strength is reduced versus a normal buffer spring, the unregulated gases will likely cause the buffers to slam into the end of the buffer tube. Probably not advisable. Thanks for the inquiry.

Q: I have an AR-15 with 16" barrel, carbine gas system, and a railed gas block. I cannot get it to cycle reliably with lower end .223. It will usually fire, eject, and reset the trigger, but will not strip the next round off of the magazine. Would The taccom lightweight spring and buffer help with this issue. I tried a heavy buffer and it seemed to make the problem worse. Thanks.
