WTS Star PD Recoil Buffers

We just finished testing our new recoil buffers for the Star PD. Testing went very well. We test fired 506 rounds through one of my PD's.
Here are a couple of pics of the new buffer and the test buffer side by side. The buffers look like they are holding up better than factory replacements ( which are no longer available anyway). These snap right onto the guide rod just like the factory replacement ones. We are pricing them as follows:

1 buffer $5.00 + $4.95 shipping and handling for a total of
$9.95...........$5.00 each + S&H
3 buffers $13.50 +$ 4.95 shipping and handling for a total of
$18.45.........$4.50 each + S&H
10 buffers $40.00 + $ 4.95 shipping and handling for a total of
$44.95.........$4.00 each + S&H

Just let me know how many you want and I will send a mailing address and
payment info.

Thanks and shoot straight..............

Jimbo

P.S. Spread the word, we want to save as many PD's as possible.

Re: WTS Star PD Recoil Buffers

I don't mean to spam this forum, but since these buffers saved a favorite pistol of mine I felt this needed to be said:

Jim,
Dude, you are THE man! I just wanted to say thanks for both making these replacement buffers and your advice on replacing them

I've had my PD for years, and never realized that the buffer was actually plastic. Hard black plastic with no dents or nicks looks like metal, and I never would have expected to find internal plastic on a gun that old. Luckily I happened to read an article on PD's that mentioned the buffers wearing out. I checked mine, and it was in pretty good shape. I thought it would be a good idea to get some extras to have just in case, but found out that Star Bonifacio doesn't even exist any more. That was a big "uh-oh!" moment.

Only good fortune (and an extensive Yahoo search) found your post on biggamehunt.net, and apparently just in time. Having recently fired a few magazines through my PD for the first time in years I found the buffer went from looking okay to definite signs of wear in an alarmingly short time. If I didn't have your replacements I'd have had a very nice looking but useless gun in the very near future.

Even with signs of wear, and knowing it would have to be done, I was somewhat apprehensive about pulling the original buffer off. Nevertheless I sucked it up and did it just like you said. Seems I needn't have worried, as all the advice you sent me was right on the money. Your buffer snapped right on, and works good as new. Awesome! Needless to say, I'm getting some more!

Thanks again!

Also thanks to BigGameHunt for having a forum that allows for classifieds. I feel like I dodged a bullet. Big smile
