AK Slip Socket Material

Paul Rieth

Practitioners and Technicians:

What AK slip socket material do you prefer? I am curious what others are using and why. I’ve used Proflex w/o silicone for years and have good results, but I’m always looking for something better. I am biased against polyethylene due to shrinkage and cracking. And am not a fan of Proflex with silicone due to difficulty keeping volumetric foam liners glued in, as well as a tendency to crack and tear over time.

Your responses are appreciated. I will post anonymously.
