First topic message reminder :

If you want a DIY tip on benellis as to the buffer. I will pass it along, I ordered several of Larry Carters buffers for my benelli and had issues with feeding, a friend and long time benelli owner showed, made me one that worked way better than the factory and Larrys, he took out the buffer and using one of those cheap advertising key fobs, you probily have them lying around, its the ones that are the same thickness as the buffer and made out of that  rubber that is translucent or solid color, long as its not the hard rubber kind, lay the buffer on it and outline with a sharpie then cut it out and put it in. I guarantee once you use one of these  you wont use anything else, doesnt crumble like the factory and cures many of the benellis function issues if you have them and lasts a long time.

while I don't have a Benelli 90 ( YET !!) I did come across this tidbit of info on what to use as a replacement. I'd be interested in knowing if it works for the Forum Members as I'm in the market for a Benelli when Larrys'.. hopefully, is back in Biz..
  TIP , Use a 3/8 Neoprene Sink washer as the buffer.. Thats all the info I have.

I don't think a washer (hole in the middle) will work. The recoil spring guide tube has to rest on the face of the buffer. Without the thickness of the buffer holding tension on the recoil spring guide tube, the recoil spring will have less tension on holding the bolt closed. Then you'll get light primer / rim strikes. Now a neoprene disk, with a thickness of around .180-.190 that just might work.

I just starting using my Benelli MP95E (22LR) after a very long hiatus.  Upon cleaning, I found the buffer was just a melted glob/mess.  You can scrape off chunks of it with your fingernail.  I tried Larry's Gun Shop but the inventory is "on-hold" waiting to be released to the Ohio Range - ETA 6 to 12 months.  I have no issue making one from a key fob or rubber material.  Can someone post a dimensional sketch on-line or can I purchase one to use as a template.  I would greatly appreciate it...

Mike- You're over-complicating this effort!  I'll post dimensions for you tonight, but this is like horseshoes and handgrenades.  Close does the trick.  If you have the rubber or urethane material, you only need to cut out a rectangle that roughly fits the depression in the buffer holder.  Then trim off the corners or edges progressively so it fits into the depression.  It does NOT need to be an exactly fit so long as it holds in place long enough to get it back into your pistol.  A few shots smush the urethane enough that it spot-welds itself to the metal back plate.  I'll post photo and dimensions tonight if you want to wait.

 Benelli MP 90/95 Better Recoil Buffer free! - Page 2 Empty Benelli buffer measurements / photos

Post by croesler on 6/6/2019, 9:24 pm

Attached are two photos: One shows the factory buffer and one is made from a piece of urethane key fob.  I was able to make 6 from a single fob.  

The factory buffer measures 13.4mm x 14.4mm x 4.6mm thick, with slightly rounded corners.  My home-made version is 4.2mm thick. It seems to work fine. The photo demonstrates accuracy in measuring is not terribly important.  The rough cut version works absolutely fine.  

My own experience, looking at the red urethane example, is to just cut down progressively until it holds itself in place in the buffer-holder depression.  After a few shots it sort of impact welds itself to the metal holder.  I would definitely not worry about being super-exact.

 Benelli MP 90/95 Better Recoil Buffer free! - Page 2 Empty Photo and measurements for Benelli buffers

Post by croesler on 6/7/2019, 5:29 am

Measurements for replacement buffer to match factory is 13.4mm (wide) x 14.4mm (height) x 4.6mm (depth).   In photos brown plastic buffer is factory size, red "fob" buffer is 4.2mm thick (works fine).  Precise edge dimensions not really needed as shown.  Get it close, cut the corners off and you're good to go.
