Geissele Automatics Super 42 Braided Wire Buffer Spring and Buffer Combo
The Geissele Super 42 Spring is inspired by the German MG42 Machine Gun. Using three independant strands of wire, the Super 42 acts as a harmonic damper and energy absorber by allowing the springs to flex independently; creating a displacement of excess energy said to decrease the change of spring failure and assists with making your AR-15 more reliable. The Super 42 exerts 15% stronger average return force over a mil-spec action spring.
Compared to mil-spec springs, the Geissele Super 42 has a decreased tendency to lose length and force over its service life. Additionally, and most notably, the reverberating twang often heard and felt shooting AR-15s is gone when using the Super 42.

Worth buying but not without issues

I needed a replacement buffer spring and figured even with it being pricier than a flat wire spring I would give it a try because of its reviews. Not having the annoying spring sound with every shot was a definite plus.
So far I am very happy with the springs performance but here are the disappointments I have found with it.
Information I read about the spring said it came with its own buffer because the springs mouth was narrower and would not accept mil spec buffers. This is not true, as other buffers I have work fine with it. I suppose its to encourage you to by buffer weights from the company but including the buffer adds to the cost of the spring.
The braided spring did eliminate the scrunching sound I have hated since I entered in the military in 1976. That sound however was replaced with a high pitched tuning fork "ping" sound. The ping is blocked by hearing protection and isn't really an issue.
Bottom line is its a great option for your rifle to replace or upgrade your buffer spring.
