Yes I have one of the Silent Captured Springs. And yes I absolutely love it! I bought it for my Rock River .223 that rungs a semi auto BCG. Runs like a champ in there really smooth and really quite when you pull the charging handle back. The noise out the front really cancels out the sound from the rear, so can't say I can tell a difference there. But it is so smooth you almost think you are firing a single shot, ie you don't feel the bolt operation. It does reduce felt recoil. Now the JP spring setup has a new home.....
It now resides in my 300 Blackout. And it runs awesome in it as well! This rifle sports a heavier full auto BCG, so I'd say that the "You need a low mass BCG" is a myth. I've read that on another site as well, but have found it to be disproven. It has functioned flawlessly in two of my AR's. I've now got to order another so I can put one back in my Rock River.
