1911 Recoil Shock Buffer Aluminum - 3 PACK
Recoil Shock Buffer extends the life of your firearm by providing a cushion between the slide and frame.

Alternative Views:

The Shock Buffer is a must for the serious shooter. It cushions the impact of the slide as it travels rearward upon firing. Plastic buffers create a bounce during recoil but the aluminum buffer works like a dead blow hammer to dampen and reduce recoil yet still provide a layer of cushioning. The aluminum buffer is softer than the steel frame and will help prolong the life of your favorite 1911. Each buffer is CNC machined from aircraft-grade aluminum, not stamped or molded. This is a disposable part and will wear like the plastic shock buff. Just like a plastic buffer, inspect the condition each time you field strip your pistol for cleaning.

NOTE: if you are not currently running a shock buffer and install either a plastic or aluminum shock buff and encounter functioning problems, remove the shock buffer. Some 1911's just will not run with a shock buffer at all.
