The SKS Recoil Buffer™ fits in the rear of the top assembly and is made to the exacting tolerances to insure a tight fit. An indentation in the Recoil Buffer™ itself provides a secure resting spot for the recoil spring guide, making assembly much simpler. The SKS Recoil Buffer™ will fit all variations of Russian and Chinese SKSs. As with the rest of the Recoil Buffer™ line, installation is a snap and requires no special tools
Much like the Kalashnikov action, the SKS action is super-reliable, but that reliability has a cost. Each time you shoot an SKS the bolt carrier impacts the inside of the top cove. This operation takes its toll on the working mechanism. While not important to a foreign super power that has an arsenal of replacement weapons, it is to you!
By installing an SKS Recoil Buffer™ you totally eliminate the metal to metal impact of the bolt carrier to the receiver, thereby eliminating the shock to the receiver. The Recoil Buffer™ also prevents any shock from reaching a scope if you have one installed.
