The extra weight for the buffer system in my Maxim CQB stock was definitely needed when it came to tuning my 8" 300 BLK. With the added weight I was able to make it run reliably with subsonics/suppressed, supers/suppressed, and supers/unsuppressed without over-gassing the system in any of those situations. Ejecting at 3-4 o'clock in every instance without having to adjust the gas block between ammo types or can utilization. If you're buying the Maxim CQB or similar stock with the JP-SCS-XS for a similar build, either buy the "heavy" version or buy this. You won't be sorry. I'm a huge tinkerer so I'm actually happy to have "standard" and "heavy" capabilities for whatever builds may come.

Although it may not be important, I personally don't like hearing the AR "SPROING". The JPSC not only gets rid of that noise, it makes for a better recoil impulse and simply feels great. There's also an easy way to install this without removing the buffer tube and castle nut. Cut a small thin piece of aluminum that fits under the JPSC about 2" long. Keep that piece of aluminum between the JPSC and the detent, otherwise the detent will end up in between the weights (Which will be a pain in the >>) Slowly slide the JPSC while keeping the aluminum in place. I've done this a dozen times and takes about 60 seconds to install.

So first of all, I was extremely reluctant to buy this item for the longest time because of the price..... However, I am now glad I did. This thing is amazing. It changes the action of the AR so drastically, for the better. It will make the action so silky smooth. I absolutely love this product. Buy one! You will love it.

Great upgrade for my AR. Helped with the recoil, even though it already has very minimal recoil as it is. No more spring pinging anymore as well. The only thing is the single spacer washer wasn’t enough for me. It may be fine for the stock buffer tube, but I have a Strike Industries buffer tube so I had to add another washer to make it fit perfectly. Overall though I highly recommend it.

Ever charge your AR/M4 and hear that grating, sandy sound? No matter how much lube you put into it, no matter how many cleaning cloths you jam in and twist out, no matter how hard you try to clean it, it always has that sound. I'm weird and take pride in a clean weapon (on the inside), because that usually means it cycles and pews longer than everyone else. Like self-contained drop-in triggers, this is a self-contained buffer system. You pull out your spring and buffer, throw this in there and it's ready to go. You can even take the time to remove the retaining pin if you're bored enough. It's about as easy an installation as you can possibly get. Now as far as functionality, how can I put this... It's buttery smooth. If you've ever seen a cutaway of a car engine, watching the piston move in and out of such a tight space because it was made to be there, sexual stuff aside, this is about as close as you can get. You might be thinking it's a bit unnecessary or a solution in search of a problem. After all, what do you need besides a buffer and a spring? You'll think very differently after trying this. Put simply, it just makes cycling better. It's not perfectly silent, but it's quiet, very quiet, because the spring doesn't press up or move against the inside of the buffer tube. And the weights are held in line. While traditional buffer systems kind of flex and bend as they go through cycling, this moves in a straight line. It smooths out cycling and makes it very quiet. Grante... Read More...

The flexibility of the multiple spring choices is very good. It was easy to install. Having the spacer in the back, not to get the right length seems second class. Also, not using a retaining pin to keep it in the butt stock is a hassle during disassembly of the weapon. The firing experience is good and functionality is fine.

I have an FN Herstal FN-15 in 300 BO. All stock with Mack Brothers suppressor from Dakota Silencer. I shoot the Hornady Subsonic 190 gr Sub-X bullet, sub-moa with this setup at 100 yards. Problem is, this ammo seems to leave a lot of scorched powder in the action. Looks like brown beads. Won't cycle correctly after 10 rounds or less when starting with a clean action. Ordered the H2 with 5 spring pack. Go ahead and take the retaining pin and spring out, will make it much easier to swap out and experiment with different springs. I needed no shimmimg or trimming, perfect fit. Found the white spring worked best for me of the 5, it is the weakest one. Ran 4 mags through the rifle, 20 rounds each. Cycled the action perfectly on all 80 rounds and locked the bolt open 3 of 4 times on empty mag. Rifle was still dirty but much, much cleaner than before. From what I understand the heavier buffer holds the bolt in place longer (dwell time) and reduces fouling. Noise level is noticeably quieter from this spring also when shooting suppressed. Price is kinda high but so is the quality, plus this thing worked really well for me. I liked it well enough to order a second one for another rifle.

The silent capture spring isn't the least expensive piece on the market, but it works, and it works very well! Nicely machined and built to last, this will smooth out the BCG recoil and quiet the annoying rasp. Keep an eye out for sales and free shipping, this is a part worth investing in.

Few products truly change much about the AR platform. This buffer system, while very pricey, is one of those parts that is a real advancement to the platform. When advising upgrades to an AR, my first suggestion is to get a good muzzle device (can be had for $40+). Second would be a good trigger ($100+). After those two I would honestly say this is the third most important upgrade to my rifles. Eliminates the scraping of the buffer spring, smooths operation and recoil impulse, basically all-around improves the feel of the rifle's action. Easy to install, no buffer detent necessary. Modular, high quality, and simple. Personally I think this product should be more like $50 considering a buffer and spring is like $15, but since it's the only option on the market JP is smart and makes us cough up the gouda for real performance. If it were cheaper it'd be an easy 5-star, but I believe all AR-15s should have had this design in the first place so I have to wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who can afford it. Considering a cheap AK has a captured recoil spring, the AR should have its design upgraded to include a captured recoil spring. I think this product does a lot to help with people feeling like the AR feels too much like a toy. I personally never get that feeling but I have friends who prefer AK's and the like who really criticize the feeling of the buffer tube/spring scraping. Go figure.

I just purchased my 5th JP Enterprises Silent Captured Buffer Spring System. It is worth the expense for the results obtained with the AR platform. It really works extra well combined with an adjustable gas block and light weight BCG to get the lightest recoil possible.

Works great and takes the thwaannngg out of the stock! It's a little pricy but if you are looking for a premium build go no further. Get the H2 because you can convert it to an h1 by taking one of the steel weights off. If you get the H1 then you'll have to buy separate tungsten weights. 1 tungsten equals 2 steel.

Fixes vibration and twang and allows the rifle to operate more smooth. Works as advertised. Amazingly simple to install and you don't have to mess with the buffer retainer detent, you can just remove it. I would highly recommend this for any AR!

Totally changes your shooting experience if you have a noisy AR. Just awesome. Military has documented hearing loss just from the spring vibrations on ARs when your face is pressed up against the stock. Shot it right away and performed flawless. Seems like less felt recoil also. The pin at the buffer tube is no longer needed so it is really easy to swap 1 spring between builds.

Needed this system to help get a 300 BLK suppressed rifle to cycle reliably with subsonic ammo. Tried a couple different springs and got it dialed in perfectly. Would definitely by again in the future for other projects.

This product is fantastic in my 6.5 creedmoor AR10. The gun cycles very smoothly now and no longer slams the bolt carrier group in the buffer tube when combined with an adjustable gas block which helps eliminate some felt recoil. Combine this system with a good quality muzzle brake and you will end up with a light recoiling system.

I bought the JP Silent Captured Buffer Spring System for both the quieter action, and the ability to swap springs (and buffers, purchased separately), or use in either a carbine-length, or rifle-length system. I personally will always choose flexibility over a product that can only do one thing. Out of the box, this will perform well in my 16" and 20" AR's. JP recommends using the heavier H2 buffer (again, not included) with SBR's or suppressed. Once purchased, this product can run the gamut of your ammo in all scenarios. It is expensive, but otherwise you would have to purchase multiple buffers and springs, and find the right combo for your application. Or, I could use a heavier spring in a pinch if I needed in my SBR's (AR Pistols) currently, without the H2 buffer. Maybe not recommended for long-term use, but in a pinch it is a solution. I won't knock the JP System on it's high price as a negative, because quality costs money. It will serve you well for the price. This system allows total customization, which is what I prefer. I will find the combo that works both today, tomorrow and in the future. Not just for one AR, but all of them. For me, I can't go wrong with a system that is this flexible, especially to suit the needs of what I have built and what I choose to shoot out of each. If I have trouble with one AR, chances are that I can put the JP in and make it work, as well as using the other buffer system in another application I have and keep everything r... Read More...

You don't notice how loud and how ratcheting your standard buffer is until you get one of these. I bit the bullet on the hard to swallow price and man I didn't regret it. I know have them in 3 guns because once you have it in one, you will only shot that one.

bought the gen 2 heavy buffer for ar10 dpms classis with 22 inch barrel. have not used it suppressed yet. throws brass into a little pile 3 feet from the port. amazing. it doesn't reduce recoil, but it shortens the impulse so it is easier to manage.

I installed this in my lr308 24in bull barre.308 win./7.62x51 nato.Best lil tune up around. fully adjustable worthwhile investment . Minimize felt recoil impulse and once you find its sweetspot it minimizes bolt bounce and sends spent cases much more uniformly in a single spot. Be diligent and work with the option at hand to tune it in and this will be an amazing asset. By itself you will improve your longevity of the bolt carrier group due to less bolt bounce and less stress from lower bolt return my opinion this item will ultimately lead to faster more accurate follow up shots in addition to greater longevity of the bolt carrier group . To date ive run it w surplus military 147gr ball 150 gr factory 165 grn factory and 180 gr factory ammo with out a single failure.

The makers at JP Enterprises have put a lot of great care in their products. I have started with these silent capture springs since a friend recommended them to me and never went back! They are very easy to install and they are extremely reliable. So far I have not had one issue yet with their performance. I use these in all of my ar 15 and ar 10 firearms. These have interchangeable weights also and that helps depending on what triggers I use or if I am using a suppressor. I highly recommend using these buffer springs for anyone who uses and ar 15 or ar 10. They are great!

I was a bit hesitant but after doing exhaustive research and watching reviews after reviews, I sprung at it. I have to say, this thing is awesome! It cycles the gun so quietly, no more noise when the action cycles. It’s a great quality of life upgrade. Not necessary but if done, makes a world of difference. One more thing, most people say to remove the detent but I didn’t. Just use a flat head screw driver to push it down then slide the spring right out.

Very well built and much quieter than the typical spring system. Still makes noise though. Easy to disassemble for cleaning or to adjust the weights in case you needed to add another tungsten one. Cons are the price but you really do get what you pay for. The other con is the price of the weights sperate from the unit. It is nice to be have the ability to adjust the weight but that will yack in $$$ with a quickness.

On initial receipt of the JP Silent Captured Buffer Spring, I can tell you it feels good in the hand. Feels solid and appears to be very well thought out. All the research I did prior to purchasing paid off. I wanted to get rid of the "twangy-ness" in my ear when shooting (especially suppressed) on my 300 Blackout build and this definitely did the trick. A more smooth and soft recoil was a welcome bonus. Even my girlfriend commented on how smooth the gun felt. Ultimately it's not cheap but I can't imagine you'll buy it and regret it.

I purchased my first ar15 with mil-spec parts and very satisfied with the rifle. I got the bug to assemble a second rifle with parts I selected. I decided to try the JP Silent Spring after seeing reviews on forums and Youtube. So glad I did. You won't believe how much smoother your rifle will shoot without the standard buffer spring "sprong". I am happy I made the purchase and actually ordered another for my first rifle. You've gotta try one.

Installs easily, eliminates spring noise and functions reliably as H2 carbine buffer system. Helps overgassed carbine gas systems, and since it does not need the buffer retainer detent, is easily interchanged between lowers.

This sucker is expensive but if you can get over that the performance you will gain is well worth it. Your rifle will cycle smoother and quieter. As we all know one of the not so great designs for an AR are the buffer and spring. With this device all of that goes away!

Wow!!! The entire rifle feels different, smooth and quiet for the ear against the stock. No more of the cheap tinty sproinging sound. It feels like my DPMS rifle is now a $2000 high end AR-15. I fired another AR-15 right after with the standard buffer system, and it confirmed that this is the thing to purchase for anybody that owns and shoots regularly such a rifle.

Run this in a suppressed ddmk18. At first impression not sure it made a difference. Until until I visited the range this weekend. A gentleman ask me if I knew what was wrong with his AR. Upon talking with him he complained about a (Thong) sound when fired. I giggled a bit and said yup!! Here shoot mine. He was impressed! As was I. Iam not sure if it has anything to do with any other added performance. However it does in fact greatly reduce that all well to known (Thong) sound from your spring. I will purchase it again.

When I began building my first AR I heard a lot about the grinding noise of the regular spring/buffer system. I'd only bought my first AR a couple years prior and didn't really think about it that much. Well, that was until I bought a JP Silent Captured Spring system for my first build. On it's first range trip I took both rifles and when one would heat up a little I would swap them. It was at that time I began to realize how loud the regular system really is. There is a considerable, dramatic decrease in the noise level with the JP. I have since built another AR and equipped it with the JP. So that makes two. I'm building a 300 Blackout AR pistol and it will also be equipped with one as well as the AR that made so much noise before. I can't imagine I'll ever have another AR type rifle without a JP Silent Captured Buffer Spring System in it.

I had installed a JP Enterprise Silent Capture Buffer in my ar-10, 308 build. I used their standard weight setup per their website. First time I went to the range, failure to extract issues. I called up JP Enterprises and they said to run two heavier tungsten weights and the standard weight was for use with a low mass bolt carrier. So after putting two tungsten weights on the buffer in place of the lighter weight steel ones, no more extraction problems. Overall, it cost about the same buying two addition tungsten weights compared to buying the heavy weight version of the silent buffer from the get go. So long story short, the tungsten weights worked great and JP Enterprise needs to clarify on which buffer for which build.

Purchased a JP SCS to get rid of the “sproing” noise when firing suppressed shots... 100% fixed the noise... Then I put one in my 3gun AR, using the White spring from their kit, and WOW! It completely kills the recoil impulse when paired with a low-mass carrier. 5.56 has very minimal recoil as-is, but when using a JPSCS, it is non-existent; making doubles super fast and accurate.

This is not a cheap part/upgrade by any means and may seem extremely unnecessary to some people... However, if you want your rifle to reach it's maximum performance potential, you can't pass on this buffer spring system. There is nothing like it.

Shoots great, no pogo stick noises from my rifle. I deducted 1 star for two reasons: 1: I had to do some fiddling to get the overall length correct in my rifle length buffer tube. This involved about 45mins of hand sanding on the plastic spacer to get the overall length correct. 2: Price - They're billing a massive premium. There's just not much to this thing.

This is such a nice addition. Makes the weapon run smoother and more efficiently. Absolutely LOVE it! Installs in a breeze. Make sure you read the directions, I SUGGEST you remove the detent spring as suggested for easier removal of the Buffer. It is not necessary, but advisable

I already had a hydraulic buffer in this gun, but silent captured buffer makes it feel (and sound) like a entirely new gun. The gun also charges much smoother. It's a stiffer pull, but smooth and even. No longer does my AR sound or feel like a toy gun when charged or the bolt is released As soon as I can afford to upgrade my other guns I plan on doing so!

Wrote a review earlier about putting this in all my AR-15 builds. It's also in my DPMS LAR-308 (AR-10). It works like nothing you've heard before! Seriously, the JP SCS works on every platform I own and have built: A2 (20" Barrel), M4, Carbine, Varmint (24" Barrel), Beowolf, and AR-10. You will not be disappointed. I will not build an AR again without it. Currently building a Beowolf pistol, and have ordered one for it as well.

Seriously this buffer system is the best addition to every ar15 I currently own. Extremely smooth/quiet operation and in my personal experience I've had zero failure to eject since using this system. Yes it is expensive but for me it is very worth it. I only wish I could use this on my agency issued patrol rifle.

This product is awesome. I put this into an AR i built for someone with a small frame. Really takes some of the recoil out of it. Easy to Install, took me about 2 minutes. Well worth the cost. Will be buying one for all of my ARs.

Great product accidentally ordered the heavy weight with 2x tungsten but it went together really easily and the tuneabillity is really very far reaching so many combos can be ACHIEVED WITH THIS!! But mainly i can hear in the racking of the action how much smoother and quieter it is cant wait to take it to range and test it out hopefully it will perform as well as the reviews say it will... happy shooting

Always a fan of primary arms, they have shipping down to a T. But the product is just amazing. IT DOES EVERYTHING IT ADVERTISES. This is a key and really made my 30p blackout shoot alot better. I k how longer hear that racketimg from the spring bouncing around.

Bought this thinking it would eliminate the sproing and it did. It's probably not worth the money but I absolutely would buy it again. Also appears to be well made and well packaged, install was literally the simplest it could be

It's a nice product but you shouldn't have to put anything down the Buffer tube to make it fit snug. For what it cost it should fit any milspec carbine buffer tube. I have 2 of these and they are both the same way. They work as they should and definitely get rid of that twang. It would have taken 2 quarters but I ended up finding an O-ring that worked well.

Super easy install and the perfect upgrade for my 300b/o. Prior to install, it wouldn’t run all Ammo. After install I can run whatever I want in it. A low cost upgrade that made my gun run 1000x’s better. Highly recommend and will be going in all my AR’s

As a former door kicker in the Army I can say this is hands down one of the best investments you can make. I have put many many rounds down range in the military and hated the stock mil spec set up. Old school works, but this new stuff is ballin. Just buy it.

If you are looking to have the smoothest cycling AR you can get then look no further. These silent captured spring assemblies I use and every one of my guns. They are completely worth the money and make your AR cycle like butter. Highly recommended and you definitely will not be disappointed.

The jp enterprise product is a nice upgrade. It noticeably reduces the noise, however, another big benefit is not needing the buffer retainer any longer as the silent capture system does not require it (actually causes issues). I am happy with the product and service I received from optics planet. I will end though with saying this is definitely a luxury item and not a necessity for any personal builds if you are deciding on purchasing. That is why I gave it 4 stars but great product for what it does.

Put SCS in M&P lower with A2 stock and RR predator pursuit upper and wow did it smooth things out. Only noise is report and the bolt. All spring noise is gone. All vibration in stock from cycling is gone. Rifle runs very smooth. All brass is nice little pile about five feet away. Highly recommended this setup. Delivery was very fast. Installation was simple. Great product!

Like everything else designed and manufactured by JP, the silent captured spring is functional perfection. Put the H2 heavy system in my Knights CQB Mod 2. Runs perfectly with all ammo I have put through it from 42gr frangible to 77gr SMKs both suppressed and unsuppressed. No more internal "sprong" from bolt reciprocation and the recoil impulse is vastly tamed, though, with the MAMS brake, recoil was negligible to begin with. It is more a question of the feel; a soft push vs a sudden impulse.

Jp make some awesome parts. There scs is a must have for all AR15 ! The bcg moved so smooth and quite. The gen 2 unit is also so lite! The felt recoil is also reduced you can actually tell a difference. I like there scs so much I change all my standard buffer and spring to JP scs!

I have been shooting my AR for about three years now and it's always been "ok". I have slowly been upgrading with a better trigger, barrel, hand guard and some other extras. I have always enjoyed it and more so with the aftermarket parts but something was always bugging me whenever I shot it. I finally realized it was the dang buffer spring shaking my jaw bone and having to listen to it slide right by my ear. I found this buffer system and I finally truly love shooting my rifle. It feels a lot more solid on recoil much more like a bolt gun. I would recommend this to anyone even if the buffer spring noise doesn't bother you. It just makes the rifle feel so much solid.

This is all I put in my AR builds anymore. It's about $100 more expensive than the standard buffer and spring, but I can usually save that money somewhere else in the build or in my optics selection. Being able to easily and quickly tune the buffer spring rates and buffer weights with interchangeable parts in all of my AR rifles is a nice place to be. More importantly the rick-rack grinding noise is gone from my buffer tube when I shoot now. This noise is just a distraction and I do get used to it after I shoot a bit, but it's an annoying distraction that is out of my life now. That's worth more than $100 to me.

Very easy to nstall and eliminated the cheese grater sound of my buffer spring on my 300 blackout with a suppressor. I was very impressed with how much it made a difference only sound I hear noe is the bolt cycling.

I put together my first ar this past year and have been in love with the platform ever since. I went a little over budget on the gun but ended up with an extremely accurate and reliable gun. I put in the papers for my suppressor and while I was doing research on which I wanted i came across the JP Silent Capture buffer. When I started to look into it I thought there was no way that it would make a difference. I decided to give it a try despite my doubts and once I got it in I could immediately tell a difference. The standard buffer and buffer spring that is put into most wars is noisy and doesn't have a high quality feel in my opinion. This silent capture buffer was both quite and gave the gun a nice high quality feel when charging it. I have to receive my tax stamp for the suppressor but even shooting unsuppressed I could tell a huge difference not only in sound but also the feel. So I can only imagine what it will be like suppressed. I would definitely recommend putting this in your build (suppressed or unsuppressed) and the adjustment for buffer weights is as easy as changing the weights out. Not to mention the make one for CQB stocks and pistol braces.

Works as advertised. My 10.5 sbr is so much quieter it’s worth the money. Installation is a breeze. Cycling so far is 100 percent. I went with the H2 weight spring which is recommended for sbr so far so great.

I just receive this spring for a new build, it has not been installed yet. I have heard such great things about this system, I am looking forward to trying it. I was a little concerned about the weight when I ordered this system. Although it is heavier than the standard spring the weight is not bad. The quality of the product looks great. I will update once my build is complete.

I did a side by side comparison of a standard buffer spring and this product and was impressed beyond belief. I tested it as well as a friend. He noticed significant reduction in spring noise. I noticed reduction in recoil, which isn't much for 223, which aided in quick shot acquisition. Great product.

Saw these about 5 years ago, and thought about trying one. The price was a bit higher, and it was a hard buy due to the price. I really didn't like the sound of the buffer and spring against the buffer tube, and finally caved in and bought one. MAN OH MAN WHAT A DIFFERENCE! After the first round I was sold! I've built over a dozen AR-15's (A2's, carbines, and M4's) for myself and for friends, and I won't build one without the JP Enterprises Silent Capture Spring system. Several friends who already own AR-15's converted over as well after one round out of mine. This is even installed on an Alexander Arms Beowolf. I also like the fact that you can buy the spring pack, and change out for different recoil spring weights to dial it in for your personal preference. The silent capture spring system is the best upgrade you can do to your weapon, hands down.

The JP Silent Captured Buffer Spring System is great. Installed it in my AR-10 and it runs without issue. Very quiet, easy to install, and no more annoying sound from the original buffer spring when shooting. Extremely quiet when shooting suppressed! Highly recommend it!

I like this spring system very much. It makes shooting AR-15 so much more pleasant by getting rid of spring noise away ! Works well with any caliber. But effect it much more pronounced with quieter setups like 300 Blackout or 22LR.

So far it is good. You can tell the difference from the factory spring. Hadn't had any problems. Very easy to install. I didn't even have to take the pin out on my DPMS, just pushed the pin down and slide it right in.

Works as advertised. The JP Enterprises Dilent Capture Buffer Spring system is a fantastic drop in replacement for your standard buffer and spring. I threw one down the pipe of my VLTOR stock. The size was off some, so as the directions specified I trimmed the plastic filler down a bit and added a coin to make the fitment perfect and BAM. No noise.

It certainly installed easily. I recommend removing the buffer retention spring before installing and greasing the scs before installing. I don’t know why I expected complete silence when compressing, but it definitely gets rid of the springy twang and sounds more solid. I notice it most when charging the rifle. Unfortunately, I haven’t shot it yet but I expect to be impressed. I will update later. My only real complaint was how long it took to receive the component—3 weeks..

The JP Silent capture spring was installed in my lantac .223 wyld 7.5 barrel build. Limits recoil with very smooth function and cycle. No FTF or jams expended 400 rounds .223 Hornady Tap 55 grain. Best buffer on the market worth the extra money.

Ones you experience a jp scs buffer you will not go back to a regular buffer and spring setup! The jp setup is as good as it get. You will tell less felt recoil and your bcg will run like butter! No more springy noise, no more buffer moving. Setup cost a little more but it well worth it! I like it so must I put them all in my ar and furture Build.

Well worth the expense. Quiet, self contained, simple. I like the option to use different springs to customize the system for the optimum action. I also like the design that eliminates the need for the retainer in the buffer tube. I've purchased two so far.

I recently added the JP Enterprises silent captured spring to my AR15. I have been adding various upgrades to help minimize normal wear and tear on the rifle. The design of the silent captured spring eliminates the wear caused by the steel spring against the aluminum buffer tube. This spring system also allows easily changing the mass of the buffer as part of my efforts to reduce the mass of the bcg and reduce recoil.

This was a great product fit great into a CAV-15 MKII stock. No issues with instal or operation. I would recommend to anyone. Installed a KE Arms trigger and ambidextrous selector. Quite operation and good reliability. I will try it next with a .224 Valkyrie to see the operation.

I have the basic spring installed on my .223 and i like it. So far it's been very reliable with over 500 rds shot. Install was easy, although I don't like the ideal of not having the buffer detent in place, i can still install old buffer and spring as a backup. The recoil is smooth with crisp return. No more twang noise, yay..

No more clang of a spring. Better buffering for my subsonic.300 blackout. We liked it so much we ended up buying them for our other rifles as well. I wear ear plugs only when not shooting subsonic and could always hear that clingy noise, not anymore.

I put this in my gen 2 DDISR and its a pretty nice improvement over the stock buffer and spring which were pretty loud shooting subs. I will get at least one more of these and I don't think there's any better recommendation than that. Also I eliminated the buffer detent and spring which can allegedly break though I've never seen it.

Great upgrade for my AR builds. Helped with the recoil and no more spring twang noise anymore. This fit the carbine length buffer tube without any extra spacers needed (V Seven Buffer tube). Cleaning is super easy and just a solid feel. Overall, I highly recommend it.

Installed the H2 on a PSA PA10 Gen III lower. Have used both the Gen III .308 & 6.5 creedmoor uppers. Both uppers cycle so much more smoothly now, also noticeable reduction in felt recoil. And silence from the buffer tube.. Can not recommend this product enough! Will definitely be purchasing for other ARs.

This review is for the JP silent capture spring that I will be using in my AR-15 carbine. Shipping took I little longer than I was hopping and the other half took even longer to receive. I haven't had a chance to get out to the range yet to feel the difference, but I can hear the difference right away. Not as loud as before, so far so good.

Easy to install, I immediately noticed the lack of the spring noise usually heard through the stock and my hearing protection. Rifle shoots well and seems to be an improved ability to stay on target for multiple shots. It appears well made, machined and executed! I also like that it came with the spacer for a full stock application - so right out of the box it should fit without having to order extra parts.

For your USPSA PCC build, this is by far the best recoil system. Even compared to spring configurations with hydraulic buffers, the JP system is better. It makes the recoil cycle smoother, thereby completely changing the feel. Plus the weight placement is moved behind the bolt rather than in the bolt. I was hesitant till I tried, but now this is my first choice. I've been hit or miss with parts in my PCC (Pistol Caliber Carbine). Basically what fixed it was going to the JP Barrel, Bolt, and Gen2 Captured Buffer Spring System. Not only is it flat and solid dot stability, but it actually runs 100%.

I researched the silent captured spring for the AR system and thought I would give it a shot.... I was absolutely stunned at the feel inside my AR! I haven’t fired it yet, as I’m still working on this build (need money to start my upper receiver) however I attached another upper receiver to my now completed lower and pulled the charging handle and the feel inside my buffer tube is phenomenal, to say the least. Such a smooth and remotely silent action that I’m excited to feel it during live fire when my rifle is completed! It does feel slightly more stiff than a normal buffer and spring would feel, but I don’t believe it is a drawback in any way. A little pricey, but I can also feel the quality that goes into the craftsmanship of this piece. The directions for install will give you the option to remove the buffer retaining pin from your lower, which is a really easy process. However, I chose to reinstall it to keep the buffer in my lower. Prior to pressing the silent buffer into your buffer tube if you have NOT removed the retaining pin and spring, ensure you have a small punch or something to keep the retaining pin pressed or it will wedge between the weights and will be difficult to press later. I personally put the silent buffer in the tube while it was loose and then put in the spring and retaining pin before tightening the castellated nut. This will need to be done for cleaning or as mentioned earlier, if you have a small punch that will hold the pin down while removing a... Read More...

I bought this to upgrade my buffer on my Smith & Wesson M&P10 Sport. This product is well worth the money. It's a quality of life thing. I don't know how else to describe it. The noise reduction is amazing and very different from a normal spring. The sound of this thing is just so buttery smooth when you pull that charging handle. The noise reduction when shooting is honestly surprising the first time you shoot. No twang leftover at all. Everyone I have shown this to has been in awe of the quality and function. I would add this buffer to any AR, and recommend it to everyone who's wants to reduce noise, and friction in their rifles.
