Yes they are! I made the switch from MidwayUSA because Midway's customer service is fading. Plus Brownells offers decent discounts if you register with a C&R license, the give you dealer pricing.
I order pretty much everything I can from Brownells, and I don't even mind paying the sales tax to do so although I do time my orders so that I can pick up stuff while passing through.

Been doing business with Brownells for over 45 years and everything they sell is professional quality. I can often order parts cheaper than I can direct from OEM (ie. recently Browning). I use Midway, but my shipping and handling is usually cheaper from Brownells and I get dealer discount from both. Good folks and good service
One of my duties as a Dept. of the Army Police Officer is to function as the department's senior armorer. We have used Brownell's for many projects. When we needed new cleaning gear for 3 shifts they were the right people to contact. When I need something for one of my personal guns they are the first source I check with after the gun's manufacturer. Even if I have a question about a part or other product they are more than willing to answer my questions. If you order the wrong item or happen to have any problem with the order they are very easy to work with, they will make it right. They value their customers.
Had my dealer order recoil spring and rod. Good price...good quality.
There is a pretty good assortment of them. I work on a lot of guns, and having them is one of the better things I ever did. Many times when a gun ceases to work correctly, replacing one or a few of the springs that in it is all that it takes to make it operate correctly.so are these just general springs that can be used in any firearm?
Having an assortment of commonly used springs makes life much easier.
Midway gets my vote. For stock (not custom) replacement parts, Numrich as well. And they have all the exploded diagrams too.
is there anywhere that sells just packages of springs for a specific firearm? i see on cheaperthandirt that DPMS sells a bag of all springs the gun uses in case you need a back up--i don't have a DPMS so i'm not interested but i'd like it if i could find that for other brands/models.
Unfortunatly no. You'll see the AR spring parts kits but thats about it.
