I just received a Model 1 Sales 16" Pre-ban kit, and I have been reading in all sorts of magazines about parts. In one magazine it said to invest in a good spring, because this is where most jams generate from. My questions is how good is the spring in this kit? Should I order a better one, and how long will this one last me? If so, who should I get one from? I am planning on doing a lot of shooting once I get my RRA lower in and put together. Thanks.

I have seen cheap CAR stocks with crappy springs. Weak spring will cause problems.

I like Armalite's springs, cheap, and they seem to work well. But have gotten springs as good from other places.

Yours will probably be good.

In my experience it's crappy aftermarket magazines.
Never had a buffer or buffer spring related malf yet.

Have encountered Ammo related Malfs, Mag Related Malfs, and a Broken Disconnector but never have I encountered anything related to the Buffer or spring, I did see an improperly installed Buffer Detent that escaped and caused a malf.....

One of my LEO friends was always over with his CAR15, lots of problems with doubles. I changed out this, I changed that, etc. I had noticed the junky plastic buffer. I said, man, get a real buffer.

Finally I just gave him a new metal buffer. He called me back, he swapped back and forth, his rifle worked perfectly with the metal buffer, was doubling with the plastic one. It was repeatable, proven by swapping the buffers back and forth.
