CAR-10 Buffer - 5.6 ounces - $99
A CAR-10 buffer will allow you to use any AR15 collapsing stock (Magpul/LMT/VLTOR/Ace/etc) on your AR10, SR25, LMT, POF or DPMS-pattern .308 rifle. Standard carbine length stocks cannot be used on these rifles with regular carbine buffers. This is strictly a 'Drop-In' part, no gunsmithing or modifications are required.
This product is specifically recommended by Magpul for use with their carbine stocks on .308 ARs. (Call them!) CAR-10 buffers also work great with any other stock using a standard 7" carbine buffer tube.
CAR-10 buffers are shorter and heavier than standard carbine buffers. Constructed of 303 Stainless Steel with a sliding Tungsten anti-bounce counterweight. Heavy buffers reduce felt recoil for the shooter, and minimize wear and tear on the gun. Some users have reported that the CAR-10 buffer significantly increased the reliability of their firearms.
I recommend using .308 Carbine Buffer Springs with these buffers. I have these springs manufactured specifically for use with my buffers. OEM springs from other manufacturers or aftermarket springs may cause malfunctions. 'Flat-Wire' springs are not recommended for any application.
Note: Not compatible with .223 ARs. This buffer is designed for use in .308 ARs with a 7" receiver extension (buffer tube). If you have an ArmaLite/VLTOR extended length tube (7-3/4") please see the XH Carbine buffer on the AR15 Carbine Buffer page.
CAR-10 XH Buffer - 6.5 ounces - $125
Extra-Heavy model for suppressed weapons, or for maximum recoil reduction in non-suppressed guns.
Includes a Stainless Steel roll pin for a lifetime of trouble-free performance. The head is hand polished for an extra smooth finish that won't cause damage to your buffer tube.
I strongly recommend this buffer if any of the following conditions apply:
- If you will be shooting with a suppressor. (Your gun will still run fine unsuppressed with standard ammunition.)
- If you will be shooting hot handloads or very heavy bullets.
- If you want maximum recoil reduction.
Rock River Arms LAR-8 and Bushmaster .308 owners - Please note:
If your gun uses a FAL magazine you need the buffer listed below.
These guns require a slightly different buffer than all other .308 ARs. Please contact me via email prior to ordering if you have any doubts as to which product you need.
