The break action magazine damper is a piece of rubber (round on one end tapering into a point with a recessed area to allow seating when inserted into the hole at the bottom of the Pin Shoulder Plate ). This item interferes/cushions the Piston prior to contact with the bolt follower pins. I've fired the rifle without this item as it disintegrated. The bolt remains open 10% of the time when all rounds are fired without this item. Just purchased and installed a replacement today. Haven't test fired the rifle yet, rain and mosquitoes. Not certain if replacing this item will successfully keep the bolt open after the last cartridge has been fired. Anyone have experience with this DAMPER?
