Im in middle of changing Carbine to Rifle Length buffer

currently I'm running carbine heavy buffer system which is 5.6oz & rifle length gas system .

factory rifle length buffer indicates 5.4 oz ..

my question is , do you think there will much changes in gas operation ? might have to adjust through gas block ?

not sure it'll slow the cycle down a bit ..
If you have an adjustable gas block why not take full advantage of it and make the adjustment regardless? It might function well enough with the new buffer and tube but why not get the most out of your setup?
