Default David Tubbs AR buffer springs?

Ive been searching for a David Tubbs buffer spring and I have found that some websites say there is ONE spring that fits both A2 and Carbine stock, some others have a choice between rifle and carbine stock. Which one is it ,or does the Davis Tubbs CS spring fit both?

I do know there are different springs for rifle and carbine but I have never heard of the Tubbs springs.

David Tubbs make these Flat, chrome silicone springs for the AR. I have heard nothing but good about them.

I have it on my AR. I've used the same spring with a rifle stock AND a carbine stock and both works and works well. No sproing sound like with a stock spring. I would recommend it.

I picked up the Superior Shooting Systems N/M trigger spring set. I have yet to test them out. I read good things about David Tubb CS springs, we'll see how these fare. The buffer spring is prob GTG

I dont care about the noise. I want reliability. I have seen my carbine spring start to shrink after a couple of thousand rounds.

The thing about tubb springs is that they are listed as extra power. You run the risk of short stroking with weak ammo using an extra power spring.

Ive been using these:

After my $5 carbine spring crapped out at 4k rounds I started looking for better options. Supposedly they run for the entire life cycle of the weapon before it needs replacing. I dont know about that claim but I havent had to replace one yet.

I don't understand the spring issue. I use reduced power and light weight buffers in my rifle for many years and I haven't had a problem. Are you guys experiencing problems or has something got you spooked.

Tubbs had a great reputation for his products, if he made it it must be good. I have a friend that has one of the early 70's era 20" Colt AR's and still has the orginial spring. The spring and rifle are older than perhaps most of people on this site and no problems.

Im running a 14.5in carbine ADDAX GPU with a H buffer and it functions FLAWLESSLY but after shooting a lot of rounds(thousands) I can see that the spring has shrunk. The life expectancy of a buffer spring is about 5k rounds! You guys who go to the range and shoot 100 rounds or so, you might not run into the same things I do.

Which are you using...the blue, red, or the new green?

The flat wire spring is too stiff, went back to the round wire one, and my loads are anything but weak...
