    You might as well change the return spring while your at it. Wright's has the best springs and buffers. Which gun are you looking at, field or trap? If you are using it for a backup, check the POI. All of the trap models I've had only shoot a couple inches higher than the field gun.

    Wayne, just consider yourself unlucky. There are some nice high impact barrels out there. You're not looking hard enough!!

    I would add that normal cleaning of the magazine tube and gas piston after using is important. I picked up a SX-1 where it had been neglected in those areas and was starting to corrode. Upgrades of stainless and coated parts are available for the tube and piston. I have owned one for approximately 7 years and other than one bolt buffer the gun has been very reliable. For a target gun the weight is OK but for a field gun I think it is a bit over weight.
