How often do you change yours out?
In the area of 5k... although I don't track my round count very close.
OR... if I start getting unexplained malfs in the loading cycle and it's been a while since I changed it.
Buffer springs should be certain lengths
This is copied from the -23&P:
Check action spring (2) for kinks and
free length Free length should be
RIFLE: 11 3/4 Inches (29 85 cm)
minimum to 13 1./2 inches (34 29 cm)
CARBINE: 10 1/16 inches (25.56 cm)
minimum to 11 1/4 inches (28.58 cm)
maximum. Do not attempt to adjust
