I have a piece of white nylon (very similar to a high-durometer urethane, but maybe a bit more rugged??) about 1/16 inch thick. I cut a hole in the nylon so it would JUST fit snugly over the pilot, slid it on and traced around it (circle with the flat side). Then I cut it out, installed it with the spring against the nylon (as opposed to "inside the cutout") and tried it out.
Basically all it does is prevents the bolt and/or actuator from contacting the pilot, metal to metal. The red fiber washer is still in place on the backside of the pilot......I'm only tightening up the guns works by 1/16 inch.
I currently have over 5 thousand rounds through my Bridgeport with it installed. It has flattened out a tiny bit, but no damage to the gun or parts whatsoever. No change in RPM or function, no change in reliability.
I may never need to use the three spares I have in my parts bag.....
