View Full Version : Does the AR buffer spring ever go bad?
Or is their a advantage to replacing them after so many rounds or period of time if the AR is still functioning properly?
Yes they will wear out. As to how many rounds I don't know. I swap mine every 3-4k. However, I tend to run heavy'ish buffers and feel there is less margin for wear.
Yes, replace it when it no longer conforms to the dimensions below:
Here a link to the Army Manual for the M16/M4/AR15 down load a copy as it is the reference to all questions of the platform- with specs and replacement scheduals for parts! Every AR15 owner should have this reference. http://search.mywebsearch.com/mywebsearch/redirect.jhtml?qid=fbe307fa24fca0878f8d2b98f18f9de2&searchfor=TM9-1005-249-23P&action=pick&pn=1&ptb=7qaaQTpPFHy86t6JO7jgHw&ptnrS=ZKxdm173yyus&ss=&st=sb&cb=ZK&pg=GGmain&ord=2&tpr=&redirect=mPWsrdz9heamc8iHEhldEWF1JPyJ8nPY24qla1V4NT7Iulf3IbCapb%2F3wIrP12LZ3KToV%2BfTUxhM7A7X0%2BGQg 50HWaLan%2B%2BxUO89IooYAE3Axh2Z2tzrnhuLAsXF7lc8&ct=AR
