recoil buffers

Recommended Posts

I won't say no one uses them, but I don't. I tried using one on my .308 Saiga when I had a Tech Sight installed, because the Tech Sight did not have the mechanical buffer the .308's recoil spring assembly did. It started sticking up the works when the weather changed though.

 

That said, the addition of the buffer was for functional purposes rather than ergonomic ones. On a .308, the difference between using the buffer and not using it was imperceptible. Maybe it would have a greater relative effect on the light-kicking .223 Saiga.

Have had a Blackjack buffer in mine from day one. Don't know if it helps or not but it hasn't done any harm either.

I have used and have not used. I cannot say that it makes a difference. I thought it might have been causing issues, but I do not think it was the cause. I am going to leave mine in there until I decide to take it out again.

I have a Blackjack buffer on my Saiga .223 since day one . After 400 rds , no problems at all . It is insurance that no damage will be done to the carrier or the trunnion , so I am keeping it installed . I have another Blackjack buffer on my PSL 7.62x54R for the same reasons ... also no problems .

A buffer would not reduce recoil at all . It is designed to prevent the carrier hitting the trunnion . It is a cushion device . In many rifles , it happens ... in others not , but many people (me included) prefer the insurance of having the buffer installed if there is no interference , just in case.

My point exactly - cheap insurance at sub-$20.

I used a buffer tech I think it was called. Its purpose is purely to prevent metal to metal contact. Thy are usually good for 1k rounds. My mini 30 has about 1k through it and it still has life. The one on my Saiga may last 700.
