Default Mid length, carbine question

I have a del-ton mid length rifle. I ordered a lightweight 16" carbine upper yesterday. Will I be able to just switch uppers when I want to? Do they require different recoil springs and buffers?

Carbine uppers tend to run a bit more reliably with an H1 or H2 buffer.

If you've got a fixed stock with a standard A1/A2 tube and buffer, you're totally fine. If you have a collapsible or entry stock with a standard carbine buffer you will probably be fine, but might be better off with the H1 or H2 heavier buffers.

Thanks for the info. My middy has an A2 stock and a monsterman grip. I'm going to build a collapsible stock bullet button lower for the lightweight carbine upper. I just wanted to switch back and forth if I could. Mark

I have a midlength gas system 16in barrel with a collapsible stock and standard buffer/spring from an RRA parts kits, so far after 400 rounds no non-magazine related failures.
