    stock buffer pad

    I have about 110 rounds through my rifle now nd noticed my stock buffer pad is chewing up. 80 rounds have been on gas setting 4 and 30 rounds on setting 3 using brown bear 125gn sp. I am guessing i need to lower my gas setting and repllace the buffer pad. I am trying and use gas setting 4 per the manuaal during breakin but i wont have any buffer left if i do that.

    That's why I told you to pay attention to what the rifle is telling you in the other thread. The break in procedures are just to avoid headaches/heartaches of failures at the start.

    Your rifle just didn't need parts to wear together. Run it on the lowest gas setting that gets you proper ejection patterns (8+ feet at 2 o'clock). You'll probably also find that the recoil the rifle gives you is pretty soft.

    If a large chunk is missing, I'd replace the recoil buffer before shooting again. If it just has some marks, it's probably okay to shoot it until you replace it.

    I had to replace mine after about 150 rounds or so. After that, I figured that it was broken in, and I turned the gas down. It now runs like a dream on gas setting 1 with no really noticeable wear and tear on the buffer since I replaced it. (I always have a spare one with me though, just in case.)

    I believe some of the buffers were factory defective.I have over 12,000 rounds through one of my XCR's and the buffer is still going.

    War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse.... A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.----John Stuart Mill
