Thanks for the heads up. I've been using the Buffer Technologies buffer, in conjunction with the Tubbs/Superior Shooting Systems chrome silicon springs. And this combo leaves my empty brass about 18" away in a nice little pile, with every rifle.

I had similar results (not so good) using Advanced Tech buffers through my M14 types, and quit using them altogether, but it appears that all buffers are not built alike. I may give them a try.

M14sRock...... Where did you purchase your springs from? How do they hold up compared to GI springs?

A USGI recoil spring is rated for 5,000 cycles. The Superior Shooting Syst chrome sil springs are rated for 500,000 cycles.

All of my rifles now wear chrome silicon springs.

My LRB M25 has about 1,000 rds through it since adding the shok buff. No signs of wear or damage to the buffer at all.

Late response. Oops. Wolf springs are excellent, but the Tubbs will last longer.

Probably excellent springs. Were they new, or used? If used, you won't know how many rds went through them.

The Numrich site will test anyone's patience.

it said in the description they where unissued new usgi m14 op.rod spring...no picture...i took a chance?...

they came in a clear ziplock like baggie....kinda wondering myself if they are original because there is no traces of grease or oils on the springs...

i thought most any type of original parts would be coated with something?

i havent had time to try one out...but i must say it feels alot better (more tension) then the one in my polytech...
