    It all depends on ammo, velocity, suppressed vs unsuppressed, etc. You can run heavier buffers for reduced recoil, BUT, too heavy, and you start messing up the timing ie bolt not locking back, failure to load round from mag, etc. Too light of a buffer, then you get bolt bounce, etc. If you shoot suppressed, throw a heavier buffer in there to slow things down a bit, as it will be a bit gassier

    I have Sig 716 AR10 that has a stock adjustable buffer tube. In order to put a magpul PRS stock I have to convert to a fixed length buffer tube, so I will need to buy a new tube, buffer, and spring. The whole project was to be able to put my BT monopod on the gun. It just keeps getting deeper and deeper. I am trying to figure out if making these changes will effect the performance. I already have the PRS stock but could return if needed. For $500 I can buy a lot of rear bags..

    Well, all you need is the receiver extension. I JUST changed one from a rifle to carbine on a buddies AR10. Your spring and buffer will work.

    Remember I don't know shit about black guns. I was told by magpul that I would need a longer spring and longer buffer.

    I pulled the rifle buffer and spring out of his larue, pulled the A2 receiver extension off, put the carbine on, and put spring and buffer back in. Works fine, larue said to do it.

    Sugar if you decide to put the prs on, you are more than welcome to bring it over and I'll swap it for you. I have the vice block for ar10 lowers [stupid expensive]
