Are recoil buffers for Romanian SAR-1s a good investment? I have heard that they are good but that they can do some bad, like mess with the action of the gun. You'll have to excuse me, I'm still new to AKs. Thanks.

I've had the Recoil Buffer from Ken_Red_Star_Arms in my SAR 1 for almost a year now, and I have yet to have a problem with it.

They certainly won't to any harm, but there is no real need for them.

It will not make your rifle last much longer than good maintinence.

I have no answer to weather its snake oil or not.I do have one in a SAR 2 for a trial . I scoped the rifle and just seeing if it took away alittle recoil felt for quicker follow ups. I pretty good CHEAP buffer is sold by BlackJack buffers.I believe its like two for $20 . He is a sponcer over on AK47.net . I see no harm in them if your rifle function with them in.WarDawg

I have no personal knowledge about these buffers but read 'somewhere' that there are two - maybe red and black (??) - and one harder and the other softer. Anyway, whatever I was reading recommended getting the 'softer' of the two buffers.

I have the Blackjack black one on my conveted Saiga. I noticed a reduction of recoil on the first shot. Well worth having.

Another vote for the BlackJack. Have a green(soft) one in my SAR-2.

I had a RSA buffer in my first SAR1 and it did cut down on the felt recoil a little bit. It also reduced the metal on metal impact.I'm not sure if it makes the rifle last any longer or not, but it sounded different. The action was shortened a little too much I thought. When bumping I had a few problems. I'm gonna take my new SAR1 to the range with a thinner blackjack buffer in a few days. I think the thinner buffer should help.

Are there any websites where I can get a Blackjack buffer? Thanks!
