Have been restoring a Model 1907 Winchester 351SL.
It has a recoil buffer and washer under the barrel that is captive inside a chamber.
Probably 1" long and 3/4" O.D.
The steel stepped washer sits in front of it and there is a guide rod that is threaded thru the center of the buffer and washer of approx. .200 diameter.
Being this is old and hard, I would like to replace this.
GPC has them for sell in the parts list but I would assume these are all old parts from worn out rifles and the last one being made in 1958 I would be just as well of with my old one.
What would I make the buffer from. What type of material and density?
Any clues would make this easier.
Thank you
Ronnie

Usually the parts from GPC/Numrich Arms are new old stock. They purchase parts from gun makers that no longer make that model, or from out of busniss gun shops

I needed a top lever for a Savage single shot, the part sent was brand new never used. If they have the part it will be just as Winchester made it, not something cobbled up to make do.

Thank you , I have posted that on thier web forum , hopefully I will get a reply.
I was wondering since 1907-1958 that the industry would have invented something better to use since then? Like Polyurethane , and the different density?
Duro I think they call it?
the auto pistols use poly buffers but I dont know the Duro that they use?
