Default Preferred Buffer for UBR Gen2?

I didn't think about my rifle buffer not working when I made the switch.

I read another post saying the H3 works well.

Magpul says an A5 system is compatible, but I don't know anything about it.

All comments welcome.

I used the Vltor standard weight A5 buffer with the A2 spring. So far I have only used it with a 16" carbine upper. The brass came out with strong ejector smears, but was 100% reliable. If I get the chance I will try it with a 20" service rifle upper soon.

There are two heavier weight A5 buffers available from MidwayUSA. Since mine was for a carbine build, I won't be getting either of those.

FWIW........... when I switched out my wifes stock, I just threw in a carbine spring and buffer....................no issues.

But if it ain't broke, don't fix it...................
