As the others have said the best bet is getting one from a vendor. Once again getting the correct material (hardness) is where you end up wasting a fair amount of time and/or money. Do home made buffers work? .... sometimes, but when you can get one from Weaponkraft that works as well as they do for 6 bucks why jack with it. Hawk has a good buffer too called TEN22 Innovations but he also sells the Weaponkraft buffers.CaliforniaGuy said:Are recoil buffers simply a peice of polyurethane that fits over the recoil bolt? Something you can buy at a hardware store?
If so please enlighten me on any particulars..odes it need to be hard/soft, etc. what to buy?
Glad you are happy with yours. As for me, I wouldn't risk it. Not because I couldn't read a micrometer, because I can. Not because a "quality dealer" isn't close by, because one is. I wouldn't risk it because I haven't done any real research into which of the multitude of plastic rods, at which hardness, is appropriate for this particular installation - and I'll bet you neither your or my "quality dealer" has, either. Reed, at Weaponkraft, has.Macktheknife said:Recoil buffers are nothing but a piece of .250 thick plastic. For you people that can't read a micrometer, ask for 1/4". The catch comes in getting the right hardnes.Too soft it wears out,too hard & it breaks. Knowing all this I bought mine from quality dealer. Mack
