Shooting the AR family reminds me of repeatedly slamming shut the screen door at my grandparents’ lake cabin. That was one of the old school metal screen doors with the big ole’ spring on it.

That's a really good analogy - it is a lot like a screen door spring, just sped up a bit.

There's a silent "captured" spring & buffer assembly out there (by JP Rifles) that uses a smaller diameter spring, and therefore keeps it from sliding along the wall of the buffer tube where you can hear it. Pricey bit of hardware, but some people really hate that noise.

Good suggestion on the JP spring.

I’d start with a $5 Twangbuster first, to see if that was satisfactory.
