    Black or white buffer

    When cleaning my 60 the other day I noticed a hairline crack in the buffer. I don't know how long it's been there. I just got new glasses and added more lighting to my work area. Can only see it with both.

    It's a new style sn starts with 00. So which is better or doesn't it matter?

    Thanks

    From what I have read, there is no difference except the hole size, which is not a concern. It is either a little loose or tighter but doesn't affect the purpose of the buffer. I found Midway has the best price. Buy two, one to replace and an extra. Might think about the recoil spring too.

    We all have it coming, kid.
    As the riders loped on by him, he heard one call his name
    "If you want to save your soul from hell a' ridin' on our range"
    "Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride"
    "A-tryin' to catch the Devil's herd across these endless skies."

    Not familiar with the materials. I suspect something from the urethane family. I know in rubber compounds carbon black is added for strength and durability. (think:tires) Durometer (the measure of hardness) is a critical factor. Perhaps someone with more knowledge then myself will cement this question.

    I have on my list a spare recoil spring and one each of the 2 different size circlips. Just in case I booger up or lose one. Guess I'll add a second buffer.
    Thanks

    Well I decided black is beautiful.
    I ordered from Numrich even though Midway was cheaper because Midway didn't have something in stock I needed for another gun.

    Time to start studying videos on the procedure.
