I recently installed one on my M4 and when working the charging handle the spring noise seems excessive. I haven't had a chance to fire it yet...

Is this normal?

Probably because it is a shorter buffer tube you notice it more. So yes it is normal...after all spring expand and contract.

I noticed the spring noise and it sounded like an old screen door opening and closing. What I did was I COVERED the spring and buffer tube with gun grease and the noise has stopped. Jay

I was considering the grease option...

but was worried that it would cause a problem.

Would white lithium grease work?
