AR15 Carbine Buffer vs AR15 45acp Buffer

AR15 Carbine Buffer vs AR15 45acp Buffer – I like to be very visual in my explanations. One picture truly is worth a thousand words. In the picture above a standard AR15 Carbine Buffer is compared to a Heavy Buffers .45acp buffer. There is probably nobody that understands the AR15, AR10 and 308AR recoil system better than Slash at Heavy Buffers. The Heavy Buffers .45acp buffer at eight and a half ounces is a half ounce heavier than the eight ounce Hahn AR15 Pistol Caliber Carbine Buffer.  Slash also recommends a Wolff Spring #16501 for maximum reliability. Visit Heavy Buffers for more information.

Note: Slash dimensions are proprietary. That is why they are not listed.

I felt is might be useful for some to see the difference in the 45acp AR15 HEAVY BUFFER compared to a standard ARMALITE AR15 CARBINE BUFFER. In the picture below the mass of the AR 45 buffer is pretty obvious. The 45 AR Buffer also weighs in at 5 ounces more than a standard AR15 buffer. The weight difference comes not only from the size but from the material used. The AR15 Buffer is aluminum and the AR 45 Buffer is made from very dense and heavy stainless steel. Make sure you buy the right buffer for your 45 caliber AR15 carbine, pistol or rifle.

Decided to photograph my Slash’s .45acp AR15 HEAVY BUFFER. It’s quite a substantial buffer and beautifully machined.  There is a raised surface that lets the BUFFER SPRING attach quite securely. The end of the buffer is stamped “45” although I am not sure what it could be confused with. This is the buffer that will be utilized with a WOLFF EXTRA POWER BUFFER SPRING in our .45acp AR15 project. A Heavy Buffer like this MUST BE USED on all 45 caliber chambered AR 15 Rifles. Do your research before you buy.
