    I have a nice HK-91.
    The finish is not all tore up from a port buffer. And the HK claw mount scope.

    Now you want me to deface it? :D

    Sure, have at it.
    I have a nice CETME, not so concerned about the finish.

    I shoot the HK. And it works fine as is.
    If you like the buffer. Go for it. But I won't do deliberate damage to any gun I own.

    I understand reloaders like to save their brass. But I won't damage a $3000 rifle to save some .20 cent brass?

    Hey, the product is what it is, stops brass from getting sent to never never land. It's a trade off, If you want to get your brass back this helps. As I stated in the first post. .20 cents brass aint didly untill it comes into the thousands of rounds saved.
    I shoot 1000's
    No disrespect implied, I go through ammo. I want the brass back.

    I've had one on my 80's HK91 almost since I got the thing. Cuts down on the the case wall ding and shortens the ejection throw from about 15 yards to about 5 yards.

    I've never taken it off in 20 years so I don't know if there's any damage to the coating or not. But then, I bought it to shoot it; not to have it look pretty.

    There is possible damage.

    And you didn't have to scratch up your $3000. Excuse me $2000 dollar rifle for it to shoot just fine.

    But It is yours. So have at it.

    Before I got the buffer was the time I had the idea of having a friend stop the shells with a 5g plastic bucket. He started yelling at me to stop shooting at about round 15 as the bottom of the bucket was cracking. Another time a buddy was firing off the driver side door, window down. He wanted a better rest position so he slid onto the set more and braced off the stearing wheel. the first empty to come out made an 8 inch spider web on the windshield. Had thought of a backstop with PVC and a blanket but seemed like more trouble than its worth.
