" fluff and buff " is a semi generic term started i belive by Kel-Tech owners to describe a light polishing of all action parts so that they will move smoother over each other , on some pistols factory handwork isnt shall we say what it should be . Some owners will go back and do the handwork before they shoot the pistol , others will if they have problems , and still others just get rid of the pistol and pi$$ and moan online about what a pos that whole brand is based on one example LOL
It's a little "spit and polish" work and another excuse to break out the dremmel. I believe Redneck is right and that the phrase was coined by Keltec fans...haven't done anything to mine yet because it shot just fine out of the box.
f & b is what you do the clean up the action and/or other parts of your gun. it will make your gun shoot better. kel-tec org has a good f & b for the p11. you can use a dremel or just your hands. i do some type of f & b on all my guns, pistol and rifles.
As Frank has stated in the above. I do a F&B on ALL my weapons and I use a Dremmel on ALL of them.
With Dremmel the words to remember is : CLEAN-POLISH-BUFF. Do not take away material or attempt to change any angles. Remembering also that some weapons parts are "hard faced".
With Dremmel I use only felt wheel with fine buffing compound. Never letting the parts heat up past warm to the touch.
If the process takes me longer because I am gentler, fine.
I got lots of time.
I am in the process of doing one of my L1A1's now. It will take the next couple of days. (am updating sights also) --------
