Opinion about the Noveski switchblock?
it's pointless unless you're running the m16 carrier group/buffer
if you're running that, you'll benefit from less gas for certain situations
Which buffer are you talking about? An M16 buffer would be a rifle style buffer setup. Are you talking about the CAR buffer?
Umm, it's cool, but precludes the use of some barrel length combinations/rails/etcetcetc
I run a chrome silicon spring with an H2 buffer and an LMT Enhanced BCG (normal bolt though). You basically wanna run the heaviest buffer that the gun will still cycle reliably on. I have an LMT Mk18 upper so it has a pretty small gas hole.
I run suppressed 100% of the time though.
What's the difference between the standard and enhanced LMT BCG's
Retimed cam slot
Enhanced BCG has more mass for a longer dwell time
Of course, this all might not matter on your gun - I have a 10.5" barrel so my gas is especially violent and finicky
Actually they redid the cam slot for a longer dwell time. If you look at your cam hole vsa regular one you will see its longer on the bottom
I personally don't think it's worth it.
One of my buddies got it on a 16" N4 barrel, and while it might theoretically improve reliability, i don't think most people shoot enough to see such a gain. Unfortunately, i didn't have the foresight to do a mag dump to see if my eyes wouldn't water when it was switched to the correct position, haha. Later when I went suppressed at a carbine class, I was choking/passing out when shooting in urban prone, since the gas buster shot the gas onto the grass and right back into my face.
The main reason i don't think it's worth it is because of the price. $185 only gets you the clamp on model, you gotta really be lucky, and really pay to get the good switch block combos.
