Majority of my search i see people knocking it down but didn't see a review on this forum.
I own 19 different Glocks and run a buffer in all of them except my 30 because they don't make one for it. All have had not 1 single issue with the buffers. There are all kinds of horror stories out there about buffers but I run them in my 1911's, my AK's and SKS's and never been anything but positive in any of them. Whether or not you should use them is YOUR decision, but for the price of one it's worth trying if you are interested.
I for one will NEVER go back to running without one. The manufacturers of good buffers recommend changing about every 1,000 rounds but I have never had to change one that often. When you clean your weapon, inspect it for any signs of deformation, tears, or just plain wear. If you see any just replace it. And yep, my carry guns use them also and if I had to run even a mag or 2 in a defensive situation I have no worries that one might fail in that instance. To each their own...
