The Crosshair Hydraulic Recoil Buffer takes the place of the receiver extension tube, converting the AR-15 telescoping stock into a recoil-buffered stock assembly without further modification. Recoil-buffered versions are available for both LEO® and High-tube® telescoping stock systems, or the recoil buffer can be purchased separately. The recoil buffer accepts mil-spec dimensioned buttstocks. The Crosshair Hydraulic Recoil Buffer is CNC machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and meets the stringent standards of military and law enforcement users. Our basic kits include the adapter and all necessary installation hardware. No gunsmithing is required for installation.
The Crosshair hydraulic recoil buffer is built to perfection and to perform at the highest level. The Crosshair buffer tube reduces felt recoil by up to 70% while improving accuracy. This advance in performance is achieved by increasing the recoil event impulse time through the use of adaptive hydraulic technology. Decreased felt recoil allows for follow up shots to be aimed quickly and precisely.
As agencies continue to appreciate the value of the tactical shotgun in their operations, and issue greater numbers of these weapon platforms, it is important they provide their officers with a stock system that delivers extreme durability with proper fit and superior recoil management. Mesa Tactical is a pioneer in recoil management and the development of telescoping stocks for tactical shotguns. Telescoping stocks are necessary for operators wearing body armor, or for smaller statured shooters; a telescoping stock provides the length of pull the situation demands.
Any Mesa Tactical telescoping stock kit can be upgraded with a Crosshair hydraulic recoil buffer which replaces the receiver extension tube in our stock kits and reduces felt recoil by up to 70%. Purchase either a complete replacement M4 SOPMOD recoil buttstock assembly, or the “drop in” hydraulic buffer alone which includes a stock nut.
