Was out shooting my Colt H-Bar this weekend and noticed a definite change in the buffer spring noise, it got much louder and more noticable.. Any help quieting it appreciated. Thanks.

I may be way off base here, but were you wearing ear muffs at the time? Whenever I use ear muffs which rest up against the buttstock instead of just ear plugs, the BOIIINNNNNNNGGGG is much more noticable. Just a thought.

That's one I like about the shorter collapsible stock tubes is that the "SPROIINNNGG!!" is alot less pronounced.

My pre-ban carbine makes more of a "BONK!" noise.

Tetra gun grease in the buffer tube always works and has never caused a malfunction.

Buy a Gas Shock buffer assy from Oly Arms and sproing will be all gone.

Those hydralic buffer is pretty useless in my opinion(but other's milage may vary). it really don't do anything for you except for maybe quiet your spring noise.
