Hey guys, I recently just replaced my original buffer and spring with the RA tech super recoil spring, and when I first took a shot, the Ra tech recoil buffer and spring got stuck in the back of the buffer tube, and it won't come out, even with me shaking it, or pushing it down with a screwdriver.
Can you guys give me any info?

Could possibly get a 1/16" punch and go through the buffer tube vent hole at the end.

The diameter of the tube gets smaller halfway down the tube..and I believe the buffer you put in is shorter then the LM4 buffer..which allowed the new buffer and bolt to go too far back into the tube..and getting stuck where the tube gets smaller in diameter..if you can't get it out you're gonna have to unscrew the tube from receiever and get it out that way..I had this happen to me when I used a rs carbine buffer..which is why I ended up getting an a2 buffer and cutting it down to same length as the LM4 buffer

I have unscrewed the the buffer from the body,
So what you are saying is i have to smash the buffer with a screwdriver on the face of the buffer?

i dont think you should smash anything..try tapping the buffer tube onto a block of wood or something like that to try to unjam the buffer.be careful not to mess up the threads.

I'm going to copy and paste a tip from Niko. Maybe his suggestions will work for your gun.

"In order to release the bolt:
1. Point the gun straight down on a flat table
2. While the dust cover is off take a flat head screw driver and push the nozzle or loading ramp toward the back of the gun. Gravity shod do the rest and release the bolt. The roller on the hammer is stuck between the bolt and the square gas inlet lip and the push should free it.
It may take several attempts but it should work."
