    AR pistol build question

    Just looking for input on what buffer weight to use and what spring. I have a stripped Spikes lower, 7.5" upper in 5.56, a NIB BCG from AIM and I just ordered a kit from PSA that includes a polished nickel trigger, Magpul grip, SB Tactical PDW brace and all the other bits and pieces. It comes with a carbine weight buffer but I'm pretty sure I'll need something heavier to slow it down and run right.
    I plan on suppressing it as well and expect that would also effect the buffer choice. Thanks for the help!

    Personally, I suggest a standard weight buffer and an adjustable gas block.

    Otherwise, I think I'm running an H3 in mine
