MAXIM buffer hard to manipulate? Maybe not.


Recommended Posts

Grabbed one of these to try in my Davinci DG-9. The recoil reduction with even hot factory pistol ammo was impressive. 
 

My findings were similar to everyone in the original post… crazy hard to charge the gun. Making unloaded starts or malfunction clearance difficult. 
 

Playing around with a solution that’s looking promising.

Grab a PRI Large handle gas buster and keep the stock seated on your shoulder while charging. Give it a fast tug. I added a delrin spacer on mine to reduce the stroke length on my PSA AR-V. I am actually looking to stiffen the recoil spring since it is throwing my brass pretty far with my suppressed loads. Hoping it keeps things closed longer for suppression. Large handled charging handles helps and keeping the gun braced for less give while charging helps a lot.

For recreational shooting… that’s all well and good.
 

My focus is competitive shooting; you don’t always have the luxury of a standing unloaded start and need to manipulate the charging handle without having it in your shoulder sometimes.

Where did you put the spacer?
