New from War Services & AOA! Based on the Mini & Micro Draco buffers that are vital to their function.
These cast rubber buffers were designed first as a replacement to the factory buffers required for function of Mini and Micro Draco AK pistols, which serve to keep the bolt carrier from jumping out of the rails due to their short gas piston.
In addition, we modified the design to allow these buffers to fit into almost any other AK variant, taking into consideration different needs of different designs. Part of this design incorporates the arms which hold onto the recoil spring, but without the need to squeeze the buffer over the whole recoil assembly like other buffers. Countless prototypes were tested and ran in rifles to reach this final design.
NEW: Short Red Buffer is about half the length of our other buffers, and with longer thicker arms. This buffer was designed to offer additional fitment options, and also to help apply pressure to the rear of loose dust covers and reduce or eliminate wobble and rattle. This buffer matches the Orange buffer hardness level.
We noticed a huge improvement on a new SAM7 UF with a loud rattling dust cover, and also variants using hinged dust covers become very sturdy.
NEW: Dust Cover Gasket - Based on the Galil ACE gasket, this prevents gas from leaking out through the recoil spring hole in the dust cover. The main use for this is when running a suppressor. Easily slips over the recoil spring button, then just close the dust cover over it.
Even if your AK does not require a buffer for function such as those with short pistons, these buffers will reduce wear and tear on your firearm, and also increase cycle rate, with the carrier having a shorter distance to travel.
We have tested fitment in: Draco variants, Mini Beryl, Beryl Rifle, Milled WBP and Arsenal, Maadi, Saiga, RPK, Yugo pistols, KUSA KP-9 Vityaz, and more.
*Will not fit the PSL due to completely different bolt carrier/rails, and do not recommend in shotguns as it will cause short stroke. Confirmed to impair function in a Vepr 12.
**New Short Red buffer may work in PSL but we do not have one on hand to confirm.
Each color has a different hardness level. These are what we recommend most suitable, but they are all interchangable:
Green: 9mm or other Pistol Calibers - the flexibility helps makes these an easy install in KUSA 9mm platforms.
Orange: 5.45, 5.56, 7.62x39
Blue: 7.62x39, .308, 7.62x54r
Red: All calibers
Installation is simple and quick:
Can’t put the recoil spring back in with the blue it’s to big
Not a drop in fit for my KR-103 but It should work, design seems alot nicer than those ones everyone used back in the day.
I had to trim the top down to fit my Draco, once I did that it fit just fine.
Rather than spending $200 on a dog leg to make a hinged top cover hold zero I tried the red gasket and red buffer. They go into place easily and hold the top cover tightly in place. Haven't tried it out yet but I assume it will cycle and hold zero, it's fairly solid and doesn't easily move when you try to move it. I think you could achieve this with the gasket alone btw.
Very happy and impressed with the product exceeding my expectations very easy to install as well....
This is by far the best buffer I've seen and used. It is a very thoughtful design. I've gone through others that wore out quickly but this one is great.
Way better than that black plastic one...Awsome product
This with a alg and a great comp and you have a laser beam.
I've always used those recoil buffers that stick at the end of your recoil spring and my bolt carrier tail always gets caught in it, I thought this product looked a little gimmicky but WOW I'm so glad I was wrong, this is a night and day difference for my 10.5" Darco, it feels so much more solid than I expected, I would recommend this over the traditional recoil buffers every time.
