Same here. Have put around 2500 rounds through mine with those springs and zero paint has come off. We're now making solutions for problems that don't exist. Are we government? Haha

I do clean my lower receiver by spraying the lower outside/ inside with break free powder blast. And noticed the paint came off.
So that was why i shared my experience just in case IF any of you clean the lower receiver like i do.
I know lower receiver usually clean enough regardless you have shot few, 100 or 1000 rounds. But it's just me.

I just detail strip the lowers and run everything in a ultrasonic cleaner then spray it all with clp if it gets grungy enough a simple cleaning won't do.

To me yes it does. Try it.. it's an inexpensive $10-15 upgrade.

For ten bucks it's worth a try. Sure I can drop 100-300 on a high end trigger but that money can go else where. Like into a barrel or maybe a nice chrome bcg

It really does I put my springs on aftermarket ALG ACT Trigger dropped the pull on that by about 1.5-2lbs now my trigger pull is 3.5lbs instead of about 5.5lbs of the standard ALG ACT Trigger or my original mil spec trigger which was around 7-8lbs and gritty is now smooth, crisp, and light
