Hi

do you run the SCS2 without the buffer retainer pin, a little bit of pain to install and reinstall. thanks

Just remove the retaining pin. That's it. I've been meaning to remove mine. It runs fine with or without the pin.

I left mine on, but only because I couldn't get my castle nut to budge...  Works just fine though.  Takes an extra 10 seconds to wiggle it out, but that's the only difference you'll see.

I pulled the pin out of all my lowers that use the SCS.  Makes no difference really if its in or out but it does make removal a bit easier.  I'd say if you are going to stick with that setup (the scs) and take it out regularly to inspect/clean I'd go ahead and remove the buffer retainer.

My castle nut is badly staked so its hard to take it out, will Dremel do the trick? Grind the pin, lol

Sounds like you're better off leaving it.  There is no disadvantage to leaving it.

just a follow up , I can't seem to find info regarding the main spring of the SCS,  are there any after market springs I can use, like the present set up of my SCS ( standard spring used). tried contacting JP, so far no response, my concern is where in the future to get replacement spring, Oring and bumper. I'm in Canada so Jp might not ship,

btw, how often do you replace the spring. thanks

There's a spring kit you can buy.  The stock spring is the 85%, the kit comes with an 80, 90, 95, and 100 i believe.  I put the 80 on because I have an adjustable gas lock and light weight carrier.  You don't need it, the stock one is just fine.

thanks, i just want to buy the stock( std) weight, no need for the kit, can’t buy direct from JP since they don’t ship to Canada, want to try the standard and the 80% too.

You can leave the pin.  I did.  Also, if your castle nut is stuck, and you ever want to use a different system, you'll be screwed if you damage the pin.  Just leave it, it's fine.

 

It comes with the 85, and if you want any other springs you'll need to buy the kit, or possibly check ebay.
