I was wondering if someone could explain the different Buttstock Buffer Springs and tubes. Some are extra power and lower power...What is wrong with the standard spring and tube...Thanks for the help guys

Nothing is wrong with the standard springs. But when you start getting into odd barrel lengths or attaching sound suppressors you may need a little different spring. And then there are people in competitions who want minimum power loadings for low recoil and they need a lower power spring for reliable function.

so for someone that is loading a little hotter round they would want the higher power spring so that the rifle will function? Thanks for the help

I would just get a little heavier buffer.

A little hotter, no. But if you are using an upper for something like .50 Beowulf or .458 SOCOM then an extra power spring helps.

Nothing wrong with milspec. Different springs/buffers just change the cycle rate. In my M4 I run a increased spring with a h3 buffer. Decreases muzzle jump and gets quicker more accurate follow ups. I run a milspec spring with h2 buffer in midrange tac rig.
