MSRP $129.00? Thinking its not worth it for a semi-auto used for hunting and plinking. How long does a recoil spring last anyway? Maybe better for full auto, don't have one so can't say. Best guess, another unnecessary product to separate a fool from his money.

It may be worth it just to get rid of the annoying "spoing" sound my spring makes.

I coated my recoil spring with terta grease. No more "boooininginginging" it now goes "slurp!"

I agree. A fix for a problem that doesn’t exist.

Why? I see no point to it. Works in all temperatures, gee, doesn't the regular one do that?

That spoing noise is sweet music, not anoying. Grease it down a bit that will take the 'spoing' out a little

My Colt has never "sproioioioinggged". It just kind of goes "kuh-shwink". My buddies Bushy sproings so bad I though it was either going to fall apart or there was a slinky caught in his buffer tube. Are they different materials? Wierd. CS

My Bushy made a twangy sproing sound 'till I greased the tube, spring, and buffer with Mobil 1 red synthetic grease... It's slipperier than snot on a greased pig now... Really made a BIG difference... SMOOOOOTH & SLIPPERY !!! No need to waste $129 on a new buffer... $129 will buy me 1000 rounds of .223 ammo.-->$129.87 Delivered to my door (Century Int. Arms)

Interesting, and completely irrelevant ( at least for a semi auto AR)! What problem is this $129 gizmo solving? Besides, it looks like it weighs a ton. [>:/]
