Does a Mid Length use the same buffer has a Carbine?
#1
I switched out one of my carbines for a mid length do I need a different buffer?

I used a carbine buffer in a mid length build and it cycled 100%. YMMV

Other variables such as ammo (hot vs mild) and gas port size will affect cycling too....


....but unless the gun has cycling issues I wouldn't change it. Buffers are pretty cheap though if you need to slow or speed up the bolt.

Echoing what's already been said, not likely to be a problem. Test it out, if it cycles, keep it. If you normally shoot the high pressure stuff I'd say almost for certain that you will not have any problems.

Heaviest buffer that will reliably cycle the weakest ammo you run. ive had good luck with h2 in a 16" mid, h in 14.5" pretty soft shooting. experiment till you find what it likes, with an h3 and a standard carbine buffer you can make any weight by mixing/matching internal weights.
