    Okay, need some opinions

    So, the honeymoon phase has finally passed and my suppressor introduced me to recoil spring noise that I was previously ear-blind to because of said infatuation with the silent bang only a 300 Blk can make. This noise has components of me ole '72 Penton's girling shocks combined with an asthmatic goose wheezing on a hot, muggy summer day. Sort of a "SKEEE-WONK!!" It's bad. It's bad and it's gotta GO!

    So gentlemen, I ask what do you do about the pronounced recoil spring noise? I am hoping to save the JP captured solution for last as it's also likely to be the heaviest, and this is my woods bummin'/creek stompin' gun. Not entirely sure, but I'm pretty confident that a Super 42 will not do a damn bit of good, putting me squarely into the JP solution. I tried white lithium grease per the spec, but it works for a few shots until it cakes into the center of the coils. What do you swear by?

    Enjoy at my expense, but please discuss.

    I donít think anything will stop it other than the JP. Itís truly awful only with .300BLK subs. But I get used to it.

    I used to think that starving children in Africa was bad. Or puppy mills where poor puppies don't even have enough room to turn around in their cage. But then I fired my suppressed .300BLK with subs and now I know the true calling that needs to be addressed.

    A little grease on the buffer spring and a few thousand cycles will take care of it.

    Same noise. To satisfy my curiosity I tried a chrome silicon spring from Damage Industries. No grease... no noise.

    Has anyone tried the Geissele spring shooting suppressed?
    The best way to survive a violent encounter is to be the one inflicting the most violence.

    I'm a fan of the JP SCS. Smooth.

    I may be wrong but I seem to remember Geissele specifically stating that the Super 42 was not intended for use with suppressed 300 blk. This was put out when the product was originally released and I don't know if things have changed since then.

    Just saw a video recently and Bill himself was saying that.

    White lithium grease and approx. 2,700 rounds through it. Like I said, I didn't recognize it so much while the full-on freedom boner was diverting blood from my ears.

    I have something similar (JP polished, precision ground, same metal) in my RECCE and it sounds like a dry spring in a metal tube. Not quite sure it'll be as quiet as I want.
