Bolt action rifle??? [;)] Seriously, it's a part of the AR experience, the sound of a healthy happy AR, it wouldn't be the same without it... Think of it as Stoner's built in magazine change indicator... In short order it'll seem like music to your ears...

This ought to be tacked up at the top since it gets asked at least once a week.

I hear (no pun intended) that ACE stocks are supposed to dampen it...Please no more tacks! we have too many as it is... Try using search instead

Try using ear plug type hearing protection. The muff type rest on the stock, and transmits the sound from stock to ear.

Or, get a mini-y comp. I've always used plugs, and I hear it, is it worse with muffs? I greased mine, and not a sproing since.

Get over it. Its what an AR does.
Link Posted: 9/23/2003 7:32:23 PM EDT
He he! I knew Lumpy would chime in here. Exactly! it's an AR.....part of the experience....Personally I would miss it!
Link Posted: 9/23/2003 8:30:23 PM EDT
The guys who shoot springer air rifles use a tar-like subsance on the springs to stop the sproing. I don't know if it would work with an AR, and I wouldn't really want to be the first to try, but I thought I should just put it out there.

I don't think there is a simpler answer than that.

My Ace ARFX is pretty quiet, a RRA with one that I shot was too. I think it's the pad that muffles it. It also makes for a comfy cheek weld. [:)]

How do I get rid of that annoying CHING sound when my M1 Garand ejects the empty enbloc clip?

Try shooting without hearing protection. After eight rounds of 06, I'm sure you won't hear that 'CHING!' (or anything else for that matter...) [;)]

There are some really great answers here... You need to get used to it, its the proper sound for your AR to make, and thats just hwo it is. In time you will learn to listen [b]for it[/b] instead of [b]to it[/b].

I believe that someone here said that Bushmaster had a limited production part that wasn't in the catalog. It was supposed to dampen the spring noise. Call them up and ask them about the part "de-boinger".

am i the only one who doesnt notice it when i shoot?

[:O]BLASPHEMY! I propose the notion that this member be banned from this site for all of eternity. No, really though after you become one with the rifle you won't even notice it. Instead what you will notice is the absence of it on the last shot telling you it's time for a reload. Never ever apply any grease to the buffer or the spring. You are inviting nothing but problems and your AR will be sad because you cannot accept it for who it is.

I LOVE that sound! I'm taking the afternoon off. i'll be at the range in an hour and a half after a mexican lunch. :) sprong!!! Creepin up on ya, Creep dog
Link Posted: 9/24/2003 8:27:20 AM EDT
I dont even notice it anymore
Link Posted: 9/24/2003 9:32:27 AM EDT
Ok since all the hardcore guys love the sound. Here is your answer, you cna by the David Tubb recoil spring or just buy the siliconspring from Brownells, I know someone that has an extra one for sale if you are interested
Link Posted: 9/24/2003 12:03:26 PM EDT
I appreciate your feedback....even yours lumpy. I can appreciate a nice twang... but mine seems awfully loud. My brothers Colt makes no such sound.
Link Posted: 9/24/2003 12:49:06 PM EDT
Grease up the spring and the noise will go away, simple as that.
Link Posted: 9/24/2003 2:07:01 PM EDT
good lord !!! GOD of AR-15s give me strength !! ANNOYING...?????? to a seasoned AR shooter that my dear fellow is a lullaby [:D]
Link Posted: 9/24/2003 7:46:09 PM EDT
the 'twang' makes it unique.
Link Posted: 9/25/2003 8:44:41 AM EDT
Buy a M1A. It will get rid of the annoying spring sound on the AR and the clip ejecting noise of the M1! [:)]
Link Posted: 9/25/2003 9:21:55 AM EDT
"SPRRRROING!" is the sound of a happy AR. Grease the buffer spring to make it nice and quiet. A little CLP will do.

I bought one of the speedlock springs for my SPR wanna-be, because I'm shooting heavier loads. But, yes indeed as a bonus, it does eliminate the spring noise.
Link Posted: 9/25/2003 12:46:41 PM EDT
Simple, just get rid of that spring and buffer. [:D] [img]http://www.hunt101.com/img/060457.jpg[/img]
