JP silent capture spring?

I saw this and figured I'd give it a try....it's something new. I already have a polished spring and buffer tube so it's already smooth as butter, but it was something new I'd never seen before so I thought I'd try it out. Received it this morning.

Once I got it in the gun, it was an improvement.... There's no "spoon over cheese grater" noise, now there's this annoying squeaky/screeching noise. I'm a bit skeptical right now so I'm taking it out in the morning to give it a try. If it's not a massive improvement It's going off into the classifieds. No sense in trying to fix what isn't broke....

Here it is.

Has anyone else tried it yet? Thoughts?

Oh, the website said it's out of stock, it isn't. I ordered it 3 days ago and it just came in.

My thought exactly - especially at that price.

Ok.... I admit it. This thing really surprised me. It squeaks when you operate it manually but when you're shooting it there's nothing. It's even smoother and quieter than my old system. I'll be getting another one of these to put in my new rifle length AR I just started.

No more noise under your face when you shoot and the reciprocating mass feeling is gone. (The rifle feeling like it's pulling forward from the buffer and bolt riding home). Running an ACOG TA11F-G and a battlecomp 1.0.

First shots were on random steel at 100yds. Went up to an 18" plate at 200 then on to an 8" plate. Last three shots were just.....the last three....

Turn your volume up so you can hear the steel. Did miss a few though on the small one.

Looks great and I love JP products but that is a pretty steep price tag. On my first AR biuld I purchased an enedyne hydraulic buffer and a tubbs spring. The rifle is set up with a 28 inch heavy krieger barrel with the gas port moved forward 2 inches sitting at 14.5 inches. I don't think the gas prt location had anything to do with it but the rifle did nothing but short stroke until I put standard issue stuff in it. Even after using the buffer enedyne took it back, I was surprised that they did that. I am glad it works nice, does it improve anything other than eliminating the noise?

Uhh.... It made my rifle worth just that much more? And I can say I now have some JP parts in it?

That's about it......

Many of us have been getting the "twang" out by simply applying white lithium grease to the buffer spring.

Smooth, quiet and comfortable.

I have thought about the JP affair, but my carbines run too well to mess with success!

JP is quite the innovator and everything he makes is first quality. I would imagine this offering is no different.

It is interesting, but I can't see the point to this product. The sproing doesn't bother me in the least, it uses a proprietary spring, it uses a shorter spring even when used in a rifle, it is expensive, etc.. The only reason I see for it is if you are in competitions and it helps you a tiny bit. For defense use it is just one less known reliable part in your rifle. There is nothing wrong with an H, H2, rifle, or even Vltor A5 buffer and standard.

Maybe I'm finniky, I just like my stuff to be different. Even painted my XD40 neon green.

If my rifle looked and felt like every other rifle out there, it really wouldn't be "mine" would it?

And it works juuuuust fine.
