Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Armaspec Captive Buffer Springs are Crap

I caught a YouTube post by the ’s least favorite internet gun guru Karl Kasarda on InRangeTV. It warned that Armaspec CBS were crap and will tear up your KP-15 lowers/GWACS/CavArmsII buffer tubes if you substitute them for the pricier JP Arms CBS.

I cheaped out and bought the Armaspec unit.

On reading the post I took out the Armaspec unit to replace it with the original buffer and spring and got a nasty surprise.

Since I got the unit I’ve hardly shot the rifle if at all. All its wear is from removing the chambered round for legal transport and chambering a fresh round when it was legal to do so. The Armaspec has a rubber ring on the front of the buffer and after less than a year of low speed cycling it has significant wear. This isn’t even the primary issue with these products.

The primary issue is they wear on the buffer tubes and break through on these synthetic stocks. Other commenters claimed all flat buffer springs excessively wear all buffer tubes. The (at the time) $130 JP captive buffer springs do not do this according to the discussion group. The (at the time) $80 Armaspec units are said to fall apart even in aluminum lowers.

Just an FYI. If your flat spring or Armaspec units work, I’m happy for you. For me I have a crap extra CBS until I get a JP unit.

If the acronyms are nonsense to you, the three lowers are three company’s polymer AR lowers beginning around 2000 with the Cavalry Arms lowers that were screwed together in Arizona. That company ran afoul of the ATF. GWACS in Tulsa obtained the rights to them and vibrationally welded the halves together. Their tooling wore out around the time InRangeTV used their lower for an ultralight weight AR project. Brownell is selling an updated version of InRangeTV’s version in complete rifle form, stripped lowers, lowers with GI parts or lowers with boutique parts. In either black or FDE. Every time the lower moves to another company it loses color options. The good news for most potential customers is the grip is now very much MagPul MOE like.
