With standard semi auto ARs, why are some of you adding heavier buffers and M16 bolt carriers?

Reduced recoil? (Um, have you shot your AR? It's very light recoil.) Sorry, I don't get it.

If I recall correctly the greater mass, keeps the bolt locked for longer, and this not only lessens the recoil, but the pounding forces on the guns internals. I always thought that if its not broke, dont fix it, but to each his own.

(The bolt, being locked longer, could also allow the pressure to drop a bit more, before opening up the bolt.)

1. The system was originally designed for the M16 carrier, so why not?

2. The H buffer slows down the weapon's cycling which can increase reliability. The H buffer isnt mandatory initialy. However, over time as the gas port erodes, it can help restore proper balance.
