Building a 11.5" barrel AR & not sure what buffer & spring to go with in your standard adj 6 pos buffer tube.

Also, plan to build a 7.5" barrel AR as well. Anyone have suggestions on what to go with there?

If you already have a standard carbine buffer tube run a H2 buffer and a sprinco spring. sprinco has a guide on choosing.


I ran an H2 and a white Sprinco in my 10.5 carbine before I changed over to Vltor parts.

go with Vltor if you don't yet have a buffer tube. Sprinco green rifle length spring and H2 Vltor buffer.

I run a red Sprinco with a H2 in a 4.5" and 6.5" 556 and both run great with that combo.  I think having barrel/gas-block from the same mfg that are meant to be run together makes a big difference.  I've run both of these uppers with std spring and buffer, and all kinds of combinations of weights (spring and buffer) and they have always run fine.  I just like the recoil impulse and the ejection pattern with the heavier weights better.

The standard milspec spring BCM sells, all mine run the same with an H / H2 / H3 buffer… but I haven’t fucked with the gas at all.

Gassy? Definitely. Reliable? Completely.

I too am a fan of the SpringCo Blue and H2 buffer setup.  I also use SpringCo Red and White with Carbine, H, and H1 buffers depending on how gassy the rifle is.

H2 and Sprinco White.  Tamed my seriously overgassed 10.5 down nicely.
