Well, now you’ve done it! Your AR jammed, and you decided to break it down because this situation was serious. But when you separated the upper and lower receiver, an AR-15 buffer retainer came flying up at you. If that sounds familiar, you need a new AR-15 buffer retainer spring kit like this one.


Don’t waste your day blaming yourself for what happened to your AR-15. The average factory-installed AR-15 buffer retainer is made of low-grade steel and is not designed to last as long as you would like. Rather than crying over spilled milk, replace this cheap part with a titanium buffer retainer for your AR-15 from V Seven. You should also get out of the habit of banging your buttstock on the ground to clear a jam if you suspect that might be why your original buffer retainer broke. But even if that were the case, take solace in the fact that regular use can wear down a buffer retainer that isn’t constructed out of titanium and cause it to break.


Can you replace an AR-15 buffer retainer pin and spring? While it isn’t exactly rocket science, it also isn’t a job that just anybody can do. Installing firearm parts like a new AR-15 buffer retainer spring kit should only take about 10 minutes, but so many things can go wrong while you’re doing it. For this reason, you may want to err on the side of caution and schedule a trip to your friendly local gunsmith to get help. They’ll be able to install a new V Seven Titanium AR-15 Buffer Retainer Spring Kit quickly with the right tools to put an end to your inconvenient issues with pin breakage and jamming.
