    Default Port buffer question

    I have a ptr91 sc with a welded rail. Has anyone figured out a port buffer so my brass isn’t so dented? Thx

    Find one of those rubber stoppers that they put on the bottom of a walking stick/cane. Cut in half (top to bottom). Trim to match the side of the receiver. Attach with duct/duck tape vertically, right behind the port, with the bottom facing forward (toward the rear of the port). You'll have to replace the tape about every 120 rounds, if you're using the 3M stuff. The rubber part is good for 500-1000 rounds, depending on build material of the one you use.

    And if Red Green comes by, he will be so proud.

    I was worried about the bend in the body of the brass. So no problems with life of the brass?

    I make custom walking sticks on the side and have bags full of those things! They are neoprene. I think I'll find a way to attach one to a small rail mount. Here's one on a stick

    I reload mine 5 x and save them after that because they are probably good for 2 more reloads during the zombie apoc

    Keep in mind the the HK literally blows the cases out of the breech while other rifles like the m1a rip it out with the extractor. While they look a little uglier from the chamber groove marks and a dent here or there they haven't been stretched . NRA tested cases and reloaded 8 times without needing a trim.
