I'm sure the site is fine to shop from.

But the bigger debate is with MILLIONS of Full-auto AK's
all around the world running fine without them for years and years,
do you really think your semi auto gun needs one??
IMHO there are better things (like ammo, RSA Trigger, etc...) to put your money towards.

Let the great debate begin!!

I don't think he said he wanted to buy a buffer there. He just asked if it was a good place to buy from. Blackjack sells more than buffers...

Just to add I do have his buffers and I have never had an problem out of any of my rifle with them. Several thousands of rounds. I'm not saying there needed. But they sure didn't hurt anything at $8 a piece when I bought them. WarDawg

There pretty good people. Been using their buffers on all my AKM/AKS rifles that I shoot. I get about 5-6K rounds out of each one. They sort of help with ware and tare on the bolt carrier and rear trunnion. I use them in my 1911's and AR's as well. I guess when I run out of $, I may stop using them.

As to the buffers, there was a thread just last week in which Templar said that he has seen "increased wear and slight damage to the cocking handle slamming into the front end of the rifle" caused by the buffers returning the bolt forward faster than it's designed for.

As far as I can tell, he speaks of only one rifle. I would suspect the heat treat of that carrier since the cocking handle is machined flush with the carrier face that comes into contact with the front trunnion.

Buffers in AK's really have no right or wrong answer in my opinion. I currently own 25+ AK's and probably have owned close to 50+ over the years. I have found buffers in my rifle to only be a problem if there is already other problems with the rifle prevalent. In other words, a properly built rifle with a fresh recoil spring and a buffer installed, has never caused me any problems and this is using nothing but BlackJack buffers. The thicker Buffertech buffers have caused me problem even in rifles that I know for certain are in top running form.

I really think buffers have to be taken on a case by case basis with each individual shooter trying at least one and make a judgment call. There is valid pro's and con's on both sides of the argument and any neutral observer would probably call them a wash in the debate.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

I have placed my order, but I did not (nor was I planning to) buy a recoil buffer.

I wanted to buy a flash hider, a G2 trigger set, and a retainer plate.
