    Hi Mas,
    What is your opinion on using the recoil buffers in 1911 Duty weapons, or weapons used for Concealed carry? I have heard and read that using them really reduces the battering on your weapon when firing full power loads. Then I hear that it is just something more to go wrong, and should be avoided.

    I wouldn't recommend it. There is potential, with wear, for it interfering with reliability.
