They'll sell in 5 minutes at $100, or in a few days at $150.

It's basically a device that when put on and removed, guarantees you will need to get the gun refinished to remove the deep scratches. :)

But its intended function is to give a softer cusion for the empty shell casings when it is ejected. Without one, the brass gets one or two fairly deep dents in the side, making the casings (almost) unuseable for reloading. The port buffer is intended to stop that damage.

Port Buffers

I have port buffers on a 91 and a 51. I have them to keep ejected brass from beating the crap out of the receiver directly behind the ejection port, in addition to not denting the brass for re-use.

With the buffer you get one wide and shallow indentation on the case instead of the two sharp scary looking dents.
Also the brass will "only" fly to the next county, not the next state.

They also may help to save the finish on your rifle, except they may also badly scratch the rifle when putting on and taking off the buffer.
Apparently there is a secret "correct" method of how to put it on and take it off without f***ing up the finish but I am not privy to the details of this apparently alchemistic process.

PB prices just went nuts this year, sware last year they were $50-60

heard someone mention using a thin sheet of plastic when installing, but didn't quite get the whole process.

I think so. Some people used a cutout section of a milk carton to prevent scratching. I'm sure there's a way to not scratch it if you ever remove it, but the general consensus is that once you put it on, you never take it off. So the scratches are not visible.
