At breaking stuff. :laughing: So I got my lower the other day, and last night I tore it down and rebuilt it to get more familiar with it. There was a rattle in the buffer tube that appeared either Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning, so I looked closely at the buffer when I had it out. I somehow managed to break the buffer. :eek: I'm about to tear it down to check it out, pics to follow. And a HUGE thanks to Pete, I placed my order today for an upper and after asking him about the buffer, he said he would toss one in when he shipped my order. ANY ONE LOOKING FOR GUN STUFF, TALK TO ALOHAROVER! I'll post the pics once I get this thing apart.

Nope, that would be Rock River Arms. I noticed that rattle/shake but I couldn't remember if my other one did it or not. Unless it was different from what I recall. And I don't remember breaking anything except that stupid roll pin

:laughing: It's in the buffer itself, not a big deal. I've gotta find my drill to get this pin out, its wedged in a way such that I can't drive it out. Pics to come. :flipoff2:

Ummm..the weight in the buffer is supposed to rattle a bit when you shake it.

I shook it next to the phone for Pete to listen to. He said it wasn't normal. :laughing: This is more noise than normal. Way more.

Innovation. See above. :flipoff2:

I've been around ARs enough to know this isn't normal. This thing is like a small morocca (WTF on spelling, you see mexicans shaking them at fiestas. :flipoff2: ).

It sounded like a couple steel bearings loose inside a steel tube.

That's my story and I am sticking to it :D
