I have a hahn heavy pistol buffer that I got in a trade. It has about a half inch of over travel and its causing some problems. I think that spikes makes something that will fix it, and i have seen that RRA has some kind of plastic insert too, I was just wondering what is the best option.

thanks for your help.

The Spike's unit is great. Fair price, quality material and it is a drop in and go system. I ended up making my own out of Delrin to cut down on weight but I would recommend getting one from Spike's as they are just great folks to deal with!

Since I have added a spacer, there are no more broken 9mm bolt catches! Worth the $15 for sure. Here's a link for you!

Get one and you'll notice shorter time between shots, less felt recoil and many other advantages. Have fun!

Thanks for the input, I mainly just wanted some feetback before I got it. Maybe Ill order a 22 upper while Im at it, it will save me 5 bucks on shipping, sounds like a good idea to me

Why pay a vendor for a fix when you can easily put $1.75 cents in quarters down the buffer tube. This spare change fits perfectly and allows about 1/8" overtravel is works quite well.

Try it, you will like it.

Try it, you will like it. No need for special parts and shipping.

You sound like my wife. "Look honey, I just bought these clothes/shoes/purses/etc. and got a 10% discount if I spent over $1000. I saved you money!!"

This.

I tried it today and it worked great, besides it can be an emergency snack fund if needed.

I use the quarters and its worked well so far. I wanted to try Spike's spacer, but couldn't swallow the $11 shipping for a $15 part.

I cut a circle out of a 3/4" piece of plastic and stuck it in the tube, works well
