    I was able, while away, to shoot several hundred rounds through it with the heavier (H2) buffer and that certainly seems to have fixed it up. Rounds are ejecting at around 2-2:30 position, no more jams, and softer 'kick' like I'm used to with AR's. Gonna try out the H3 buffer next time I get to the range, just to see what effect that has (already have it, so might as well...)

    I'm very glad (and skeptical) that everything worked out for you.
    I almost feel bad for future readers that find this thread via search engine.
