Buffer Tech it is good call. Shooting range is too far away to go play; maybe this weekend. I will check into the Blackjack version.That looks like the buffer-tech buffer. I swear by blackjack buffers myself, but Buffertech ones haven't done me wrong either.
Do you have a recomendation on where to buy a Blckjack buffer?Keeping in mind I own a buffer company (yellow Jacket) and have spent a LOT of money doing scientific polyresin research. I only sell buffers for 10/22's .17m2's and the like, so I can't really be biased one way or another (I don't make SKS buffers).
From what I have tried myself, the absolute hands down best brand out there for the SKS is the BlackJack brand. A LOT more goes into a buffer than most folks think. If you don't use just the right poly formula, it will fail early, crack, shear, screw up your bolt timing, and other problems. BlackJacks formula is dead on for use in an SKS.
It is the only buffer of the 4 SKS & AK brands I have tried, that I myself continue to use in my sks's.
