VR80 Recoil Buffer
We’ve taken the technology of our 3 stage 9mm recoil system and adapted it for use with the VR80 shotgun.
The extended plunger on the back side of the buffer will slow down the bolt so it does not slam into the back of the buffer tube allowing for less felt recoil. While the system will work with the factory recoil spring we recommend that you first go thru a break in procedure of shooting 100-200 rounds first with the factory recoil system before switching over to the TACCOM recoil system.
Our system will work with the factory buffer tube with zero modifications, but we do recommend the use of either a milspec or commercial carbine buffer tube.
**This buffer is designed with work factory recoil spring; Some users will opt to swap out the factory recoil spring for a modified AR15 carbine spring to allow for a much smoother action to charge the weapon, include in the instructions is a diagram showing letting you know where to cut the coils off the AR15 carbine spring… WE DO NOT RECOMMEND MODIFYING THE FACTORY RECOIL SPRING OR ANY OF THE FACTORY COMPONENTS.
From the examples we’ve seen, the factory configured VR80 recoil spring tends to go to coil lock when used with the factory buffer… We’ve lengthened our buffer just enough so that this will not happen using the factory recoils spring, yet still allow for the bolt hold open feature to be used in normal operation.
