Now everybody, have you heard, if you're in the game then the stroke's the word. RD short stroke buffer for the KP9/KR9 style of AKs to be exact. Ever since these Vityaz clone's came to market we wanted to do something for this platform. Our speciality has always been to eek out every ounce of performance out of our gas guns so it was a fun challenge to work on these 9mm. One thing we noticed was the length that the carrier needs to travel was way longer than it needed to be. Our nitrile rubber buffer decreases carrier movement by 1.5 inches which allows for shorter split times on target. The recoil impulse is a bit sharper but the increase in faster and more accurately place hits is an awesome trade off. The buffer is easily installed, if you can change a recoil guide spring you can install this buffer.
We have been running our test buffer in our full auto KP9 for over two years now. In the photos, you can see the wear on the buffer. The buffer has over 10 thousand rounds of full auto fire and has very minimal wear. The buffer is also being used on the range at Battlefield Vegas and they have pretty much seen the same conclusion.
