Cool i use delrin

buffer...so far, so good...

they're easy enough, and affordable, to replace regularly if you're concerned.

I have original, rubber and nylon rod in deferent guns, the only difference was noise when rubber quietest nylon second metal noisiest, it made no other difference as far as I can tell.

Now I have installed a KIDD extended bolt handle because I kept hitting the turret on my scope with my knuckle with the factory handle. At the same time I swapped out the spring and guide rod and ended up running the 10 percent lower power spring for good function. I then reinstalled the rubber buffer and now it works like a champ. My rifle just didn't like the factory spring set up and the buffer together. Stay tuned for accuracy testing, it seems to be good offhand but was not able to print on paper as I ran out of time.

I can see how having a softer buffer instead of the steel bolt stop pin might alter the cyclic rate a tad. That could be good or bad.

I had one 10/22 with the stock recoil spring/charging handle assembly that choked on Federal Auto-Match regularly that did much better with the same ammo after I swapped the steel pin for a Tuffer Buffer.

Certainly, if you have issues after installing a buffer it is worth the time and trouble to swap the steel pin back and see if things improve. But I doubt very much that installing a buffer will create troubles on a regular basis.
