Well, now you’ve done it. Your AR jammed and you decided to break it down because this one was serious. When you separated the upper and lower this crazy buffer came flying up at you. You don’t need to start praying now, what you need is a new AR-15 buffer retainer spring kit by V Seven.
Don’t waste your day blaming yourself. Those little buffer retainers that come factory installed are notoriously made of low-grade steel. What you have to do is replace that cheap stuff with a Titanium buffer retainer from V Seven. Oh yes, if you have a habit of banging your Buttstock on the ground to clear a jam, stop it, that could be the reason it broke. But, if you're not running a Titanium buffer retainer it could happen through regular use.
Can I Do It?
Can you replace an AR-15 buffer retainer pin & spring? While this is not rocket science it’s not really a job for just anybody. Installing a new AR-15 buffer retainer spring kit honestly should take about 10 minutes, but they’re much that can go wrong. I would suggest that you err on the side of safety and schedule a visit to your friendly local gunsmith. If you have any doubts or not the right tools, don’t try it. Installing a new V Seven AR-15 buffer retainer pin & spring will put a stop to inconvenient pin breakage and jamming. Whether you decide to go it alone or go to a professional please don’t buy just any old junk out there, go with the best, get a V Seven Titanium buffer retainer.

I got this one because, why not? Titanium can be tougher in shear applications than steel and the price isn't that expensive. This part is obviously well made and does what it's supposed to. I doubt you can feel the fractional ounce of weight that you save, but titanium parts are always worth extra cool points.
Titanium = The metal of the Gods.

It's amazing how light and strong Titanium metal is. Buffer retainers are known to break, the craftsmanship and quality of these buffer retainers are impeccable. If there is one upgrade I'd recommend is this item. For the price, you can't beat it. At least until a stronger more affordable metal is created. I've seen standard buffer retainers fail, and well your firearm is down... Try one, it's good insurance, you never know when you might need it.
Wing Tactical; sells quality parts and are packaged very well, with very reasonable prices.
