    Default HK Steel Shell Deflector

    Has anyone used one of these weld-on deflectors on their HK91s? The clip on deflectors scratch the receiver's finish when you put them on and off, and I was wondering if these might be the way to go. I would like to reload my brass, so a deflector or brass catcher is definitely needed. Thoughts and comments, please!

    That deflector won't do anything to save the brass, it just keeps it from flying as far. If reducing brass damage is your primary goal, you want one of the rubber faced port buffers.

    That deflector will require refinishing after it's installed due to the welding, a port buffer will require refinishing if it's ever removed due to the scratches it makes when you remove it.

    Where are the rubber faced port buffers available? Are those made of metal or plastic? I saw Adam has a brass catcher made of plastic, as well as a metal clip-on deflector. I did not see anything about a rubber face on the clip-on metal deflector.

    This is the metal clip-on port buffer that Adam sells:

    It's a little hard to tell from the pic, but you can if you zoom the picture up - it does have a rubber pad in the front of it. It does help, and also will reduce the distance the cases are thrown. Or go to brasscatchers.com for an actual shell catcher. The only problem with them is that they fill up fast.

    But many people reload their beat up HK brass. Sure, they'll still have a ding in the side of them after being reloaded, but as long as they're resized properly it won't hurt anything.

    I know either stubbicat or tiger888 (I get my cats confused :) ) reload them.

    I just installed one of these: http://www.robertrtg.com/pofport_carry.html
    Ejected brass strikes a rubber pad instead of the edge of the ejection port. I don't think it scratched the receiver going on and I don't see any reason to remove it.

    Just be aware the port buffer REDUCES the damage to the brass... it doesn't eliminate the damage. Primary purpose is to keep the brass from taking 1/4 inch plugs of flesh outta the people around you, generally to the right. :D

    12' further? Wow, that is odd. I only had it on there until I got it refinished, but it reduced the distance mine were flying by about 6 or 8 feet.

    It doesn't really matter now, the range I use most frequently put up screens between shooting benches. Even better, the cases drop down the screen and slide into a bucket at the back of the bench.

    I have one of the weld on ones-got added when Ghillie Bear did my build- and it seems to save the brass some what. The dents aren't as bad. At least I can get a few more reloads out of them.

    Either the buffer is installed incorrectly or your PTR is under ejecting...


    When we sold the port buffers in Chantilly in the eighties we advised the customers that it was considered a permanent install. Once it is on, why ever take it off?

    We also told them that the buffer was not designed to limit brass damage, but to limit flight distance.

    If you are reloading, there is no problem using the brass from a 91 or 93 once full length resized. You may not get a dozen uses out of them however.
