Chemical sophistication.........hum? Guess I ain't that smart, I just spit on 'em!! Works great and it's free! BTW, since you are so sophisticated, is there a difference between 'then' and 'than'? Just wondering..........later.
Yeah, "then" is a sophisti-typo you get when typing in a hurry without proofreading before you post it. LMAO.

Original post has been corrected. Thanks.

I made one from a 1/4 in plastic bolt from lowes. 70cents. It's quieter than the steel one from ruger and it doesn't cost 8 bucks from a fancy named company. Works just fine

I have only used the Tuffer Buffer that comes from Canada!

My guess is that the pure plastic/silicone is better at absorbing impact than with one with a metal insert. Though i could be very wrong.

+1! Tough yet flexible - won't shatter, provides a softer impact for the bolt so less felt recoil (minimal, I know, but every little bit helps for follow-through).

The most durable one that I have found to use is the one that you can get when you purchase a Ruger 10/22. They don't tell you it's there, but it is.

That being said, I have a couple Tuffer Buffers and a couple Kidd bolt buffers in some of my 10/22s.

None of them shoot any differently. The soft ones may be a little more quiet, and stop a little vibration, but not much, especially since I always shoot with hearing protection. If I shot a silenced 10/22, I'm sure it would make a bit more difference.

As they say, and as I have been with regards to this... a fool and his money are soon parted.

Iowa Fox // Years ago the VQ buffer was a steel pin with a rubber sleeve. It was the first that I tried....
Same here. I installed it over ten years ago in my 2003 Stainless carbine with black synthetic stock and the buffer still looks like new and is very easy to remove and insert.
The main reason I replaced the original steel bolt was because it was undersized and would always fall out too easily when reassembling.

I've been using a Yellow Jacket for several years with no problems. Good product and I would use them again.

1/8" fuel line + 1" x 1/8" roll pin inside. 15k+ rounds; looks the same as on day one.

2 piece buffer is easy to install and remove too (pin comes out first and goes in last after the tubing).

I am using Black Acetal / Delrin rod 1/4" dia - 2 ft Bushing from ebay ( actually it's 2 x 1 foot rod , $6.25 shipped). At least on my 10/22, it's a bit thicker requiring you to use a hammer to drive it through, so I sanded it down a bit and works great.

3K rounds on it and still no sign of any wear.

Yup! A steel factory provided pin will certainly arrest the rearward travel of the 10/22 bolt...............no doubt. For the cost of a "buffer" a more caring owner of the Ruger 10/22 rifle may gain a bit more comfort in knowing that the bolt will experience a "softer" encounter with the bolt stop pin.

If the entry ends of the buffer are getting a bit ragged from inserting into the receiver, use a finger to smear a little oil on the entry end of the neoprene buffer. I think I even read a post at one time here, how well "Preparation 'H' " works for inserting items of that diameter.

I tapered my tuffer buffer on one end because It can be difficult to push on my new 10/22, but on my older one it was easy.
