PISTOL CALIBER AR15 CARBINES COMING TOGETHER

It’s taken a few months but these two pistol caliber 9mm and .45acp AR15 rifles are nearing completion. The 9mm AR15 shown directly below is was built from a CMMG factory dedicated 9mm upper, PWA lower, Magpul Foliage Green Furniture, Colt 9mm Magazine, Geissele Trigger, Hahn Precision 9mm Conversion Block , KNS Anti Rotation Pins, Colt H2 Buffer, Armalite M15 Buffer Spring, YHM QD Flash Hider for a YHM 9mm Wraith Silencer. Not shown is the Silencer and a Magpul Foliage Green MBUS 2 Rear Sight.

The .45acp AR15 directly below shares a some similarities to the 9mm AR15 above in that it too uses nearly identical Magpul furniture. The difference being Flat Dark Earth (FDE). The lower is an old Olympic Arms “Stop Sign” Lower  Receiver matched with a new Olympic Arms dedicated .45acp Upper Receiver. This project also utilizes a Geissele Trigger and a YHM QD Flash Hider for a YHM .45acp Wraith Silencer. Notable differences are Battle Arms Development FDE Ambi Safety, Heavy Buffers .45 Buffer

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.
