Hey guys,
I been reading about the Spikes Ar15 pistol buffer assemblies and they seem to be good and i guess they have more thread so it looks shorter than a basic carbine buffer but is actually the same length?? And i also read that ACe pistol buffers work great too!! Which one would you gusy reccomend, i am looking for the most reliable buffer assembly for an Ar pistol??

They both seem to use the standard carbine buffer and spring. That's a good thing. That means they are both going to be reliable. Choose the one that you like. I think I have the Ace tube. It's perfect with my standard carbine buffer and spring. Cycles fine.

People (yes, on the internet) say those buffer tubes are iffy. Please let us know how yours does.

My buddy says they work fine for him. I picked up the old model, they have a new and improved one now too.
