    Glock Recoil Buffer

    Has anyone used the Glock Recoil Buffer? Says it will reduce felt recoil and save wear and tear on the frame. I was wondering if it really worked.

    JUST SAY NO.

    If it needed to be there it would have been put there at the factory.

    In addition, a RB can keep you from being able to pull the slide all the way to the rear i.e. to slingshot the slide home on an empty reload.

    They can also get worn out and break up, and the resulting chunks can interfere with proper functioning. No aftermarket recoil buffers!

    I bought a very decked-out, but almost-unfired G29 once upon a time. I soon learned why the previous owner had dumped it; it malfed repeatedly. I tossed out the buffer-style recoil spring system he had installed, and installed a factory unit. Result: 100% reliability.

    Some say the aftermarket systems last longer. Guess what? The factory units last a good while themselves, then are cheap to replace. We replace brake pads and tires regularly, on our motor vehicles; they are "wear" items. Do likewise with your Glock recoil spring assembly units.

    There are plenty of folks willing to sell us stuff we don't need, and much of it is counterproductive. Aftermarket recoil spring assemblies for Glocks fall into this category.

    I've always wondered why people change something that works great and ain't broke... all of my Glocks do one thing, and one thing really great, they shoot everytime I pull the trigger.
