So, I cleaned my FAS and found bits of the red buffer down in the frame and the buffer is completely perished and extruding out the bottom of the retaining clip.

In another thread I saw someone suggesting cutting a piece of rubber to create a replacement. Anyone have experience and any specific recommendations for what kind of material I should be looking for?

Greetings,

New buffers are available from FAS in Italy.

You might try a Urethane key fob the correct thickness. Carefully cut a replacement with a single edge razor blade.

If the buffer is ruined, you may wish to replace the recoil spring, as well. Springs fatigue, shorten, and loose their strength from the constant cycling.

Cheers,

Dave

I know. But they are only available as part of a kit that costs $112 Canadian. Granted, the kit has a return spring and firing pin.

As I have had zero issues with the pistol other than those associated with cartridges jamming or sticking in the magazine and failing to load, I don't see the need to be replacing other parts.

Make one from any nylon resembling material and it will work just fine. After all it is only to stop metal hitting metal.

I made one for my 607 from teflon impregnated nylon and couldn’t destroy it even after years. Unlike the factory one it didn’t crumble.

Going to look for a key fob or something similar.

In the meantime, I'm going to try rubber washer material. Cut it and it's retained well in the pistol by the clip.

Thanks!
Figure what I put is probably way too soft. But didn't notice anything wrong firing the pistol.
