My Colt SP1 still has it's original.Been shooting it since 84.
Did you expect people to start taking them out because you did?
Maybe you should re-read my original post. I am looking to see if anyone else does this and if it is safe and not harmful to my gun. For some reason many of you think that its unnecessary. For those of you that think so, please exit out of this thread. I am looking for specific information on if its a safe practice. Thank you to those who have at least read my posts and responded back on topic.
lol. I've said this before and I'll say it again, Post count and the year joined doesn't mean dick TO ME.
BUT, with a question like this, and the responses you are getting, what more do you want?
If you have "googled" it and found nothing, if you have asked it here and havent "got the response you were looking for", what do you want?
Guys that have been around longer ON HERE than you, (not saying they have more experience than you because I don't believe post counts makes the man), are saying that either way it shouldn't matter, what more do you want?
There might be one instance or two or half a dozen where a buffer detent broke and made a rifle not function, but there are also instances where triggers broke, gas keys broke, hell there are pictures on the net somewhere of one thing or another breaking at one time or another, is that going to make me take it out? or replace everything with super-duper high quality milspec out the ass aircraft grade space shuttle worthy parts? nah, all my stuff works great the way it is, until it breaks, i won't worry about it.
Maybe thats ignorant to you shtf people, but every weapon platform has weaknesses. you have to be mentally prepared to fix them when the time comes and have confidence in your rifle. Shooting a weapon with no confidence, worrying it will break with every squeeze of the trigger, is ineffective and will cause you to shoot less acccurate because your focus will be on the weapon, not the threat/target.
Sorry if this isn't the answer you were looking for but this is my opinion, if you can't take opinions without getting you're feelings hurt, maybe you should just read and not post.
:i am not LEO/"operator"/contractor/military/triple-blackwater-delta-tau-delta. I am just a regular civie trying to learn as much as I can without getting sidetracked on buffer detent springs
