I'm sure most of the guys here might not have heard of Reed Hanson and his orange buffers. They were the best IMO. I use Tuffers now exclusively, next best of everything out there these days.

Why would you even risk using a metal piece when buffers are so cheap?

I ordered this TRIO and have used only 1 of them:

I have KIDD buffers, and frankly, I do not even see a difference.

Agreed on this all the way. Simple and to the point.

At least two guns of my or my cousin's still sport orange Weaponcraft buffers that I bought from Hawktech at least 12+ years ago. The others have Kidds that I bought just mainly because they are easy to get in and out and are inexpensive. The old Weaponcraft ones have no issues after all this time. One of the Kidd's with the viton does show some wear, but seriously, its probably 2-3yrs old with 12K on it. Weaponcrafts were in scoped guns with a much lower round count than the steel guns with red-dots that sport the Kidd buffers.

Honestly, I'm not too worried about it. In my opinion, and based on my experience with mechanical parts, there would be a bigger problem if the pin was loose and using HV ammo. A solid pin in the hole won't have the impact problems a loose pin would. And its a factory part, this gun has been around for a long time.

But end the end, I will likely make a softer bolt stop/buffer when I suppress it. I really want to see for myself how much difference in sound it will make. But that is a ways off for now.

I bought two of the "Shock Block" polyurethane buffers from TandemKross a few years ago. The factory receiver hole and steel buffer pin are exactly 1/4" (0.250") in diameter. The TandemKross buffers could not be fitted without way too much force and my micrometer showed they were 0.258" in diameter.

I chucked them in my drill press and sanded them down to 0.252 using 80 grit sand paper which made them a firm press fit. These things are tough and my first attempts using 120 grit did nearly nothing.

Somebody mentioned a wooden dowel..
I've thought of that.
Why wouldn't that work just fine ?

Heard it said decades ago that pound for pound (good) wood is stronger than steel. Those hardwood store dowels are probably plenty for this application, plus iffn ya get stranded ya can make a fuzz stick to start a fire.

Home Depot....

.long shank nylon bolt, 2 pack, yields 4 buffers for less than a buck. If you have a Dremel takes about 5 minutes, hacksaw takes about 6 minutes. Cut off the head of the bolt and the threads, then cut the remaining piece in half....2 buffers.

I put a nylon buffer in mine a long time ago, can't remember the name. A few months back, I took my rifle to the range and shot some old czech ammo from the 70's thru it. I took it apart for a thorough cleaning when I got home from the range and found that the nylon buffer that would slide in and out easily was pretty "bruised" and would not come out easily. I then bought the 3-pack of Viton buffers with the steel pin and installed one of them.

Haven't had the rifle out with the czech ammo, but have fired some CCI SV thru it and you can hardly hear it cycle with the new buffer; very smooth...................
