    I brought the topic up a week or so ago: http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...ers&highlight=

    General consensus seemed to be not a good idea in SD pistols.

    For the 10/22 rifle, the recoil buffer quiets the action down by eliminating metal-to-metal 'slap' as the bolt cycles. That may help your accuracy as you shoot from the bench. For the other guns, I just don't see the benefit. Lots of guns shooting lots of rounds have long and uneventful lives without recoil buffers.

    Ah. I missed your post Buckeye, thanks for the link, and your comments too smitty.

    It says "easy installation" (add ha ha face here), maybe I can do a before and after comparison. At least it is not "one size fits none", being specific to makes but not models. Will update if I get it.
