The new Gen 2 model Griffin Armament AR SOB carbine suppressor optimized buffer is similar to the A2 rifle length buffer. It is designed as a replacement for the M4 carbine series buffers in suppressed 5.56mm caliber rifles. The AR suppressor buffer can also be used in 308 caliber carbines as a replacement for either the H2 or H3 buffers when used with the AR10 Mil-Spec carbine buffer tube and an AR10 carbine buffer spring.

Improved Cycle Time

The Griffin Armament buffer is engineered with a staggered-impact hybrid design that works to increase chambering reliability. The buffer more precisely controls timing while improving dwell for smoother and more reliable cycling. A telescoping buffer head and the CNC machined weights work in unison to produce a more controlled motion that results in more accurate follow-up shots.

Superior Craftsmanship

The Griffin Armament AR SOB carbine suppressor buffer is constructed of heat-treated 17-4 stainless steel for superior strength. The brass weights increase corrosion resistance, and the protective nitride-treated finish adds durability. At just 3.27 inches in length and weighing in at just 4.9 ounces, the Griffin Armament carbine suppressor optimized buffer will keep your platform light and maneuverable.

No Gunsmithing Needed

The Griffin Armament buffer installs easily and does not require any special tools or gunsmithing knowledge.
