Rifle Buffer & Recoil Springs

Recoil is one ​of the indispensable aspects ​of a firearm that has a​ whole group of ​parts responsible for handling it. Buffer ​springs and recoil springs are the main representatives of ​this group. A buffer spring is a crucial ​part designed to absorb recoil and​ return the bolt carrier group ​to the ready position after firing. These springs are often made of high-strength steel and are designed to withstand repeated​ cycles of compression and expansion. ​The AR15 buffer springs play ​a pivotal role in managing​ the energy of the recoil, reducing​ wear on the rifle, and​ preventing any damage​ to the bolt carrier. The​ recoil spring is another term used for​ the same part. Recoil ​springs provide rifles with the necessary ​tension to operate smoothly​ and reliably. The recoil spring ​absorbs the shock from the rifle's ​discharge and helps reset ​the firearm for the next ​round.

Whether you're​ looking for AR buffer​ springs or AK recoil ​springs, Gritr Sports has ​got you covered. We work​ together with such​ brands as Armaspec, Anderson​ Manufacturing, CMMG and ​others to bring you the ​best products the market has to ​offer.

Can I use any buffer spring or recoil spring with my rifle?

No, not all buffer ​and recoil springs are interchangeable. Each ​rifle model has specific​ requirements for its parts, including springs. It's important to choose ​the correct type of spring for ​your rifle to ensure proper ​function and safety.
