Linear Alignment Recoil Buffer (L.A.R.B.):
The Most Advanced Recoil Buffer Available. Ever.
Our Linear Alignment Recoil Buffer is an American made, Patent-Pending recoil buffer that runs in both direct impingement and piston driven AR15, M4, and M16 carbine weapon systems – regardless of whether or not you’re running rifle or pistol calibers.
Armament, founded in 2010, is a small FFL/SOT based in Albuquerque, NM. We specialize in title 2/NFA weapons, accessories, R&D/T&E, CeraKote refinishing, custom builds, gunsmithing and training. We’ve worked with various companies and businesses within the firearm community regarding product development and testing. My personal background is Mechanical, an Associates of Applied Science in Metals Technology and Manual/CNC machining. Personally, I am also an avid shooter with countless rounds down range and an overall trigger pulling gun nut.
Mil-spec Recoil Buffer -vs- L.A.R.B. Recoil Buffer
These accelerometer graphs represent a visual reference to what the L.A.R.B. does during firing. It also verifies what the shooter feels during firing. In simple terms, running a mil spec H buffer created sharp, steep spikes during recoil, as represented in the top graph. Running the L.A.R.B in the same set up resulted in softer, rounder and less steep recoil spikes. As represented in the bottom graph. All testing was conducted using an unsuppresed, 10.5″ LMT MRP, from the standing position, factory new Federal M855 ammo, same number of rounds per test. Tests were conducted in both semi auto and full auto fire. Data acquisition using 2016 VibeSensor version 2.0.0 by Now Instruments and Software, mounted just forward of upper receiver during firing on January 17, 2017.
