About 250 or so rounds ago I put in the black recoil buffer just to see if the ejection pattern of spent brass would ease up a bit.
The range snowflakes sitting to the right kept complaining about being hit in the face with my brass, lol, finally started throwing it back at me
People have no manners anymore....
I'm not sure the buffer actually did lessen the ejection force much

Now the black plastic buffer has cracked on top -which actually makes it easier to remove it but of course the rifle might continue to chew it up...
The black buffer didn't seem like the material is soft or strong enough
I also have the split blue buffer which comes with a screw and nut to keep it in place which I'm gonna try next
the material regretfully is about the same soft/hardness

Have you guys used any of the recoil buffers on the 54R or other veprs ?
which one, color/make have you used ?
did they last ?
which one would you recommend ?
or is it snake oil from your experience ?

share...

Had one in (blue I think) pulled it out as well. Short stroked with it in and gas set to 2. Had failures to eject.

Hahaha.

Technically I dont believe the buffer will slow down the ejection any, it only helps cushion after the bolt is already past the point of flinging the empty case out. Though I'm not real familiar with 54r, and unsure how far back your bolt goes before ejection happens. Off the top of my head, I would look into any overgassing.

Recoil buffer is not necessary. You won't hurt that rifle. It's built like a Panzer. As far as your neighbors, tell them to move. Ha haa.

yeah,
those folks were not reasonable, father and son too, maybe just jealous of the vepr ? :lol:
the buffer did nothing to ease the ejection which happens before the bolt reaches the end of its travel
however i think it helps quite a bit with handling the Hungarian 182grain steel core heavy ball (silver tip with yellow stripe)
and I think those rounds actually caused the buffer to crack too..
That ammo, designed for heavy machine guns, is particularly punishing with most recoil of any 54R I've shot :!:
it's pretty hard not to flinch with it which doesn't translate into great accuracy
a mod for the gas block to reduce the gas pressure is definitely in order but how ?...
I'm almost done with a can of that ammo anyway and not planning to open a new one until armor plated zombies come...

The only thing that will fix that is an adjustable gas block. Look in the for sale section.
