welcome bro. this buffer is actually to short to run in my rra .308. i had bcg bashing but didnt know it for a few hundred rounds and then learned about it here. i reinstalled the original buffer and spring. no more bashing. rifle runs fine. i havent shot the beast in over 2 years and thought i might sell it. but who does that!?

id be curious if this length is the same from when i bought it in 2014?  i have to measure my tube next.. silly rra?

 

tube is 8"

og buffer is 3-1/8"

weight is 61.35 g. or 2.164 oz

Anybody gonna ask why Sketch only had a scale that handles grams?

That receiver extension length (internal depth) had to change at some point brother.  I'm betting they had something WAY shorter on those guns before, and changed because something wasn't working right. Probably the only reason you could GET them working right before was because of a Slash buffer - and they changed something in that extension...

Hey now, mine measures grams, or ounces.  I choose to present the ounces, because of you bastards...   :laffs::banana:

@Armed Eye Doc, don't shoot your RRA again until the Fall Shoot.  Bring that thing with you, and I'll have a buffer for you, too. I wanna look at that gun... :thumbup:

It'll work better once I up the weight and get the length at what you need.  I've got the numbers, now.  This isn't gonna be difficult. :thumbup:

I'll get a picture of those bastards in the light, in the morning.  I don't know if I have a box big enough for them!  PM me your shipping addy - I have two for you, I think. I don't know...

EDIT  - Oh, I have 5 or 6 new ones I can cut, too...   :laffs:
