The Shrike/MCR spring is designed to work in a carbine-type stock, so if you want to use a full-length buffer tube, you need to use the spacer that ARES can sell you or go to a different spring.  The upper needs a very powerful spring to provide sufficient energy to drive cartridges out of the links, so the average AR-15 spring won't work.  Some people have had very good results with the driving spring from the MG-34, cut down to about 31 coils.

 

If you use the ARES spacer, you just drop in the regular spring and short buffer.  If you go with a different spring, you would use a full-length buffer.
