I've seen these things several places. Are they REALLY useful or is this all just some marketing hype?

Thanks,

I like them to reduce the sound. I figure that they're cheap enough that even a hypothetical benfit is worth getting them.

I've heard that they ease the wear on your reciever. If this is true or not, don't know.

What I do know is that I noticed a difference as soon as I fired mine w/ the buffer. The "clack" sound sorta goes away, and it just feels WAY smoother. For the $7 or so that it cost me, it was WELL worth it.

I have a WeaponKraft buffer by the way, I highly recommend them.

i think that like all metals if slammed into each other for a great period of time there will be some damage done.

also doing away with the "clack" is also a plus


cheap insurance imo.


weaponkraft is what i use

+1 on weaponcraft...really cheap insurane for your 10/22.

Waste of money. But hey, go for it if you think it helps.

I've been shootiong 10/22's for over 20 years...just bought the "yellow Jacket" version, Hornet gave me a free sample, but I have not tried theirs yet.

Not having the "clack" is the first measurable difference...it also reduces recoil (noticable with a 20x scope).

Do I like 'em? If I had thirty 10/22's all of them would have a buffer.

Don't think so, both of my custom jobs have them. Its a cheap mod and will save your aluminum receiver.

Any info on how long they last? I've seen them in packs of 3 or 5. That's what got me thinking. If they gotta sell 'em in packs the buffers must not last long.

I have heard of receivers cracking there. I think it is a good insurance policy. I have a volq. buffer in now. It is rubber covered steel. When I need one again which will be quite a while at the rate I am going. I will get a Weaponkraft.

i have about 10k through mine and with a shot of brake cleaner it looks like it just came out of the packaging

weaponkraft use's polyuritane for its buffers.. *yes anouther plug for weaponkraft, great guy and free shipping* if Poly. can stand up to the Abbuse that its put through when used as an automotive bushing it will surely stand up to a 10/22 bolt for 10's of thousends of rounds... hell probably hundrads...

and if by some small chance in the firey depths of hede's you do manage to wear it out he'll replace it for free..

cheap, reliable, insurance.. the removel of the clank is nice too..

for the 5 dollers they cost its well worth the money..
