    Interesting. I don't remember ever seeing anyone else comment that the green spring essentially produces more felt recoil. I don't think I've ever used the stock spring.

    I can see why they would say that, but I still use it. I do have a Tubbs spring in one of my builds.

    YMMV but try it out. Love to know what your results are.

    Thank you. So the BCM ships with the H0 buffer. Would there be a better one for a 14.5 BCM middy upper? What about Springs? Iíve heard talk of Sprinco green on here.

    Yeah theyíre weird about that. Iíve been using an A5-3 and Springco green on my BCMs for a few years. I donít know if itís the best solution, but it hasnít given me any issues in either gun.

    It does. Why? It takes more energy to compress. It's like a stiffer suspension on a car lets you feel bumps more keenly.

    I have no science behind this but Iím thinking the lighter spring but a heavier buffer is probably better but I donít know.
