Round wire springs grow in size as they are compressed. Why do you hear the "sprong" every time an AR cycles? The spring is contacting the buffer tube.
The buffer also contacts the buffer tube in two positions as well.
The rear of the buffer contacts the inside of the coils of the spring during compression of the buffer spring.
As I indicated earlier, a LIGHT coating of a full synthetic lube, that stays put, can be used with great success.
Try STOS....you just might like it.
