    More Bumpers in RT parts kit?

    Should AGD put more RT bumpers in the RT parts kit?

    I have been finding that the RT bumpers get used up alot faster than the rest of the RT parts kit. I have about 5 open RT parts kits that have been opened just for its bumpers.

    The soft urethane tends to crack at around 30k rounds. Yet I have not yet had an o-ring failure.

    How many of you are willing to pay a few extra dollars for a few more bumpers?

    AGD will you put more bumpers in if the demand is there?
    Did you hear about the new european weapons contracts? France is going to make the wooden sticks Spain making the little white flags

    Just because the bumper looks all poopy you dont have to re place it. As long as its there and mostly whole it will work just fine.

    You can also just order some bumpers from the factory

    Good to know that somone of Tom's status seeks "relief" from a sport he helped create. A sport now ruled by a single patent.

    Well, i've had my retro mag for about a year and a half now and it's still on it's original bumper. In fact, it's still on all of the original o rings too. I think one of the reg seat orings has gone though so I might be replacing that one soon. Other than that, they all seem to be hanging in there.

    Yep Dons on that right now... I guess im gonna have to open up some more parts kits for the 4 week wait... LOL Just Kidding I know you guys at AGD are backed up we understand you are trying the best you can.

    The bumpers arent just poopie at 30 k rounds there are little rings cut in the center. They come off in 2 peices. 20 bps really takes a toll on the parts.

    The superbolt does help though. The bumpers last longer with the SB.

    The only replacment of the bumper I've done was when I realized I had an AIR valve bumper in there. I've got about 5 or 6 of those bumpers in my tool kit wasting space (not that they really take up a lot of space).

    We broke 3 I believe But then I wised up and tapered and rounded the front of the bolt and this has been going strong for over 100k or so dryfires/livefires knock on wood. Its a great product when it is intact
