Howdy from GA (flat wire??)


Recommended Posts

Morning all. New member from GA. Jumped into large frame AR's feet first a couple of years ago, and ended up frustrated with an assortment of parts (and a couple of rifles) that don't work well, if at all. Time to get scientific.

Just to start off, I have seen the topic of flat wire buffer springs mentioned in a couple of threads, specifically how they are not recommended. However I have (so far) not been able to locate any further discussion on the reasons for this. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I believe you that they can be problematic, I'd just like to understand how so. What experiences have y'all had that caused you to replace a flat wire spring?

Thanks, and look forward to learning from you all.

Used them and never had a problem, seen them used to fix a problem, not my advice or first choice but I don't worry about the ones I have.

And welcome from Iowa!
