How do I take apart the recoil spring to add recoil buffer on my S12?

Recommended Posts

I cant figure it out and dont want to break it. I also put one on my 308 in front of the hinged piece of metal, but it looks totally different than my 545 and 762. Is this ok?

Why are you putting a buffer in your S12? Is the carrier slamming into the rear trunnion?

 

Generally, they're frowned upon in S12's due to the possibility of short stroking (check out Tony's disclaimer on the Tromix website).

I take back what I said, I was thinking of my 7.62x39. Just pull the front spring off, followed by the metal dust sheild thing and then slip it over the rear spring.

 

Never had any problems using a buffer in S12, but others might, results may vary.

But the 308 has a limiter on the spring assembly and the buffer I am using I got from amazon and doesnt fit over the spring of the s12 so I have to find a way to take it apart

Can you post a pic of your buffer and recoil spring assembly? It souldn't be any different from any other S12 setup. You may just need to use more force to get it onto the spring. In the FAQ section of the Saiga 12 part of the forum, the very first thing is about installing the buffer.

 

Actually, it is in the Saiga Shotguns section on the main page.

Ah, I see now. I've not seen that buffer before. The ones I normally see look like this one.

 

What you can do to your buffer is just bore the hole out a little wider until it looks a little closer to this one. It shouldn't harm it at all.

I tried to use this buffer on my Vepr-12, as a result a lot of bolt carrier jams :( after that presented to friend for his Saiga-223. IMHO useless stuff on Saiga-12. AR-style buffer with spring is much better, works without jam.

Wow, there is an Idea that doesnt suck. Very nice PapaZorro. I did come here just to tell the OP that he should avoid the buffer at all costs, but I like that AR tube idea.

I got one of those types (a buffer Dillon Precision used to sell, right?) on my Saiga-12, so I do know it does fit in the gun somehow. :up:

 

I do get jams with it using my 1st Gen. Saiga-12 magazines when first loading up a shell into the chamber from the magazine (requiring a finger assist :lol: ), the newer style magazines (with just the feed lips on them) seem to load up just fine with the buffer in place though.

 

Someone correct me here, the Saiga-12 buffer spring assembly does at least come apart in the midde somehow, right? (it's been awhile since I actually did it). :lol:

 

If I remember, that's what you have to do first to get that type of buffer on it easiest.

Pull the spring off the front and the shutter. slide the buffer on. Slide the parts back on.

I have never had any luck with those buffers.

usually jams or short cycles.
