Thanks for the info, this is all I really need.
As we know, the 9mm carbine has too much travel in the buffer tube.
On my Colt 9mm if I allow the bolt to slam home without a loaded mag the bolt catch will often break due to the very heavy bolt and the extra momentum from a buffer tube that is too long.
Hence the $1.25 in the buffer tube.
I was looking at a few different longer buffers made specifically for the 9mm to solve this problem.
That is where I had the idea of cutting down the longer rifle buffer to create a correct length 9mm buffer, but this looks like a simpler solution.
