The SKS Recoil Buffer fits perfectly to the back of upper assembly and is created to the exacting tolerances to ensure a tight fit. An indentation in the Recoil Buffer itself offers a protected resting point for the recoil spring guide, which makes the assembly considerably simpler. The many variations of Chinese and Russians’ SKS will fit perfectly to this recoil buffer. And the SKS Recoil Buffer requires no special tools with the rest of the Recoil Buffer line.
Just like the Kalashnikov action, the SKS action is super-dependable, but that dependability comes with a price. Whenever you fire the SKS, the bolt carrier affects the interior of the upper cove. This operation affects the functionality of the SKS with time. However, with the installation of the SKS Recoil Buffer, you can completely stop the metal to metal impact of the bolt carrier to the receiver, which eliminates the shock the receiver gets. When you install a Recoil Buffer, you can also prevent any shock from reaching a scope.
What a Recoil Buffer can do for your gun
A recoil buffer is made to reduce the shock your bolt and receiver gets every time you discharge a cartridge. Each buffer is designed from a polyurethane with special shock-absorbing properties and simply serves as a shock absorber. Without the buffer, the bolt is driven back to make direct violent contact with a another steel. In time, this beating takes its toll on the firearm, thereby minimizing it’s accuracy, as well as making the action become very loose.
