Buffers/short stroke spacers for TM Hicapa

Recommended Posts

I've heard that Lego rubber tires are a good fit.

 

Apparently they are available in large, medium and small sizes.

 

The TM recoil rod is 7mm in diameter. Call it 8mm.

 

Which of the Lego tires is the right sort of size. I need one with 7-8mm inner diameter.

 

I don't want to short stroke my Hicapa. The recoil spring is not applying enough pressure so the recoil rod rattles when I move the gun.

 

Just want to tighten things up and stop the rattle. One tire and a thin steel washer will probably do it. Two tires at most.

I've used all sorts of junk for similar purposes, even if its too long just cut what ever it is to the required length.

Why not buy a new, longer, recoil spring?

It's a new gun, purchased from Eagle 6.

 

I suppose I could give it a try, but a buffer seems a better alternative.
