I have found over the years that it doesn’t really pay to skimp on AR-15 recoil springs. Cheap springs seem to lose length quickly and the use of a premium spring can improve how the AR-15 behaves under recoil. It has also been my experience that most AR-15s will see a marked improvement in cycling and recoil control with the use of a heavier buffer. These are obviously generalities but suffice it to say, a good spring and a heavier buffer can have a great positive effect on an AR-15.
Geissele is now offering a new spring and buffer combo, the Super 42 Braided Wire Buffer Spring and Buffer Combo, that seems to be a fairly solid value compared to other known quality buffers and premium springs on the market.
Here is what they have to say about the combo:
The Geissele Super 42 Spring was designed to improve the function and reliability of your AR-15 pattern rifle. Its unique spring design uses three independent strands of wire, just like the German MG42 Machine Gun. This concept acts as a harmonic damper and energy absorber by allowing the springs to flex separately from each other. This flex helps displace excess energy which decreases the chance of spring failure and assists with making your AR-15 more reliable.
Compared to the stock spring, The Geissele Super 42 Spring has a decreased tendency to lose length and force over a given round count. As an added bonus, it removes the annoying spring reverberations (twang) heard and felt by the shooter through the buttstock. The Super 42 Spring has a 15% stronger average return force than the standard buffer spring. This will assist in stripping rounds out of the magazine when operating with a dirty weapon or when using steel-case ammo.
Additionally, you can purchase tungsten weights separately that will allow you to convert the H1 to an H2 or H3 buffer simply by swapping the steel weights with tungsten weights. Most AR-15 buffers have three weights inside the body of the buffer. An H1 buffer has 2 steel weights and 1 tungsten. H2 has 1 steel weight and two tungsten. H3 has 3 tungsten weights.
Don’t miss the Geissele Automatics booth (#15162) at SHOT Show 2016. They will be showing off their new line of scope mounts and charging handle.
You might even get the chance to be locked in a glass box with a tornado so people can watch you flail around like you are in a swarm of bees. It sounds terrible but, if you do well, you might just come out with some really nice gear.
Come by the Geissele booth and check out our Giveaway Booth! Each day we will be giving out our VIP card for the attendees of the show. This year we will be doing 35% off SSA’s and SSA-E’s, and 30% off everything else. Each VIP card also doubles as a raffle ticket that can be used to enter for a chance to jump in the Geissele Giveaway Booth. Winners are selected at 10AM and 4PM each day. In addition to triggers, rails, and tools that can be won in the booth, we will also have a Golden Ticket for a chance to win a custom rifle built by us with the help from Cross Machine Tool (CMT) and Leatherwood/Hi-Lux Optics.
Geissele Automatics will be showing off their new Super Charging Handle at SHOT Show 2016. The new ambidextrous AR-15 charging handle is machined from 7075-T6 aluminum and hard anodized in Black or DDC (brown). These are expected to retail for $89 in Black and $99 in DDC but those prices may change. Keep an eye out for AR308 versions in the future.
Don’t the Geissele Automatics booth at SHOT Show 2016. They will be rolling out several new products including an Aimpoint Micro Mount and ambidextrous charging handle that they teased on social media recently.
In addition, they will have more information on the scope mounts that they have been manufacturing for a DOD customer since the Spring of this year. Those mounts will be shown at the show and available in 2016. They will also be showing a new scope mount designed specifically for 50BMG rifles.
The Geissele Automatics Trigger Fitting Pin is one of those tools that I could live without but I am glad I don’t have to. I have several decent sets of punches but I still fin myself reaching for the Trigger Fitting Pin frequently.
Most punches have squared edges on the pushing end and a barrel shaped handle. They are mostly designed for use with a hammer to drive pins. The Trigger Fitting Pin is different in that it has a chamfered end which helps it fit and align easily. It has a plastic ball grip rather than a barrel shaped grip. The ball grip allows you to hold it a number of ways but the magic happens when you palm the grip to really put some force into pushing pins.
The Trigger Fitting Pin is sized to fit AR-15 trigger pins precisely. It can be used to push the hammer pin past a stubborn j-spring or as a slave pin for when you are assembling your fire control group. I also use it to push pins on Glock, 1911s, 10-22s, and more. It is sturdy enough to hold up to a light tap or two from a mallet but I have generally avoided anything more than that to prevent the end from mushrooming.
This sits in the top compartment of my tool cart because I am constantly reaching for it. Check out the Geissele Automatics Trigger Fitting Pin.
