    I just built a 20" and got around to shooting it today. Every time I shoot it I hear the buffer spring rattling around in the stock. It doesn't affect the functionality of the weapon but just more curious if it is because the hollow spot in the A2 stock that is making it more noticeable.

    I noticed the same thing the first time I fired a A2 with fixed stock, Now I have a AR10T
    and I have to focus to notice the (boing) in the tube. If you but a carbine buffer tube and stock on it will go away, Tell the wife you need to buy a UBR!! :)

    I like to use A2 stocks and I usually oil the springs with Remoil dry lube and I stuff a large cleaning rag in the stock where the cleaning kit is usually stored.

    It was a surprise to me when I shot my AR the first time, not what I was expecting but perfectly normal.

    First,... make sure you have a buffer tube that is smooth internally. All buffer tubes are not the same. Then try this:(http://www.jprifles.com/buy.php?item=JPS-OSR) with a light coating of Mobil 1 applied to the buffer tube and spring.


    You can try polishing your old spring.

    It is perfectly normal. However cheaper tubes can be louder as they're not as well finished on the inside. Either way, it is not going to hurt the function of your rifle.

    It can vary down to how much oil is on it, or the temp.


    Sometimes my M-4 makes a noise, sometimes it doesn't.
