I want to get a recoil kit but I want to upgrade all the internals first.

Yeah there are no good recoil kits on the market, yet.

Boobie- Do you know if anyone has validated BBA's claim that their kit increases WE AR's gas efficiency? If is true then there might be hope for a good kit (just not from BBA).
Ive heard mixed stories..I dont think they tested enough to make such a claim .

Just run it stock..bottom line..

This is my plan. I do hope more aftermarket starts to pour in.

That was my suspicion. Did they give any theory on why their system was heavier but still gave better efficiency? It really sounds to me like they just got lucky (maybe only on one test).

I had no problems running about 2500 rounds through mine with the ratech kit. Only reason I took it out was cause I'm fine with the stock recoil.
You have to make sure all the spacers go in and lay flat.

Did you have problem with the bolt not catching when the mag is empty after installing the ra tech kit?

Not after I did the bolt catch mod. I can throw it back in and run a few mags through to see though.
