thanks Mike, I remember seeing this pitcher when I first looked at the RA site a coupel mo. ago. But I would like to find more detail, like receiver break down, and where in the world is the recoil buffer?
If you have the manual look at the top of page 30.
There is a rubber pad at the back of the lower receiver that is about 1/2" thick.
It is labeled "Receiver Buffer".
The only other buffer mentioned is the firing pin buffer inside the bolt.
Buying a new firing pin and bolt assembly really is not necessary. You old ones will function just fine. All the new guns do ship out with the new styles, but don't panic. If your old style breaks, gets stolen, or whatever, we keep enough in stock to replace any. The recoil buffer is the one placed at the back of the inside of your lower. Whatever the manual may call it, it's a recoil buffer.
