Easy Upgrade 2
review-star review-star review-star review-star review-star
I was disappointed I did not get the upgraded spring. I thought it was part of the package. The do explain on their website the spring is no longer needed, but mine is worn already and I will be replacing it. With that I am still glad I purchased it and it has made a difference in how my carbine shoots. Thank you MCARBO. I will be back for further upgrades when I can convince the boss to let me spend the money without the LOOK.

I purchased this part and installed it in accordace with the video by the President of Mcarbo. Although it is very stylish don't let it fool you. It took me about a month to get out to the range after installation and right away problems. The bolt would not hold open on the last round and would only fire one round at a time while having to chamber every round.
I emailed and called Mcabro several times "NO ONE HAS REACHED OUT TO ME BY PHONE OR EMAIL". I took the gun to a gunsmith and was still having the same problem until I reinstalled the original stock buffer and it's all working as perfectly normal as before.
The take away from this is everything that looks good/stylish is "NOT".

Thanks Mcabro

I purchased the recoil reduction bundle, and right away problems. The bolt would not hold open on the last round. I thought maybe not enough lubrication on the bolt and spring. After adding more lube, the bolt still would not hold open on the last round. Frustrated, I bagged my carbine up and decided to shoot something else. All the way home from the range, all I could think of was the fact that my gun worked fine until I installed the spring and buffer.

Changed my recoil spring back to the original, and on my next range visit, it still would not hold open occasionally. This time I removed the buffer, and replaced the original. Now I'm back to square one. Now no more problems.
Contacted MCARBO, they told me the "Recoil Reduction Bundle" was no longer available, and I received a refund for the spring by way of a credit. However, when I tried to use the credit it would not allow me to. In addition to that, the recoil spring is now missing from my orders tab in my account folder, and subsequently, now the credit is also gone.

As I said previously, the reduction bundle is no longer in my PC, and the only reduction I've experienced is in my bank account.
A Shock Buffer that does...
review-star review-star review-star review-star review-star
The M*Carbo shock buffer does soften the bolt assembly actuation relative to the factory original. It, in all probability, will reduce wear and tear on both the firearm and the operator. Simple replacement process no more complex than a thorough cleaning of the firearm. In conjunction with the M*Carbo stainless steel buffer retention clip will lessen the likely hood of down time at an inconvenient moment.

I purchased the buffer and retention clip. My PC Carbine runs smoothly low with less noise a bit of recoil dampening. Definitely a worthwhile upgrade.
Great Company!

I purchased the Buffer and Recoil Spring Retainer. First of all...prompt ordering and shipping!! Then, using their installment videos, I made the change out. I was so glad I did. The original Spring Retainer was plastic and junk. The new one, built like a tank. Everything fit perfectly. For those of you who would be reluctant to make this type of change out, don't be. The video installations are top notch and "You can do it Waterboy". I'm 74 years old with neuropathy in my left hand. If I can do it, so can you!
Take care in ordering. The Company tells you things like "Spring not included", but if you aren't paying attention, you'll have to order several individual parts rather than taking care of everything in one order. So, do a head slap and focus. Understand what you need before you order.

sure thing! you can try using a wooden dowel to assist, sometimes added leverage will make something that normally requires strength and dexterity much easier..

Thank you for replying, YES, all the MCARBO upgrades I installed on my Ruger carbine work great. I would like to know why you changed the Carbine muzzle brake; the video showed a simpler install that most everyone could do. I installed the muzzle brake, and it works find, but I must tell you from a Senior Citizen viewpoint the original install video looked much, much easier. As for the sights on my Carbine I would suggest maybe your engineers/techs could find a solution to Ruger's problem with the sights on the Carbine, mine came way off as the rear sight is installed crooked and upon further inspection maybe the front sight is too. it's way too hard to remove them myself, I will not send this carbine back to Ruger and wait months to get it back and the way things are going in Washington I might never get it back. I installed a red dot sight and my groups improved 100 . I also installed a Magpul take down stock, a heads up for all you Senior Citizens with arthritis the Magpul G21 mag fits like a glove in the stock, so well I couldn't get it out with my hands being so bad, had to use a small screw driver ,suggest you stick to a G17 mag, or sand the stock ( a little at a time) to loosen the tension on the G21 mag now I can get it out ok . oh, another thing for a Senior Citizen to contend with is the take down itself, I have a real hard time pushing up on the lock to release the for end from the stock, I'm not going to mess with this, just live with it , if someone has found a fix for this please let me know, (a weaker spring maybe) . what do the experts at MCARBO suggest ?? thank you for listening , I feel us Seniors who still like to shoot sometimes get left out as we get older by the Gun industry , we still love shooting and I don't remember cancelling my Oath when I got out of the Military, it's still good till I die. keep up the good work Brothers .

Unfortunately, there were some factory changes made by Ruger that deemed our springs not effective, which is why they have been discontinued. The rest of our upgrades will fit and function properly with the factory springs!
