    King’s recoil reducer

    A4078697-72A7-4D13-B8CB-B20621C7C2C8.jpeg

    This is a King’s #307 recoil buffer, near as I can determine. I have heard it described as the greatest thing since mothers milk, and as the answer to a question nobody asked. It came in a pistol that I bought, and I don’t much care for it. Any thoughts, one way or the other?

    New to me, but I'm a newbie and trying to learn. I'm guessing from the looks of it , chamber to absorb recoil gasses similar to the
    Garand Gear ported plug for the Garand ?
    With all the recoil spring weights available for the 1911, it does look like a solution to a non problem.
    Is this correct and why you don't use it?

    It’s a spring loaded plunger that absorbs recoil, like a shock buffer. It just doesn’t feel right, although it didn’t cause any problems shooting.

    I had one a long time back. Could not see or feel any advantage to using it. I was shooting matches almost every weekend so it was in my pistol for a few months. When I went back to a standard recoil spring guide, there was no difference. I think it was a solution in search of a problem.

    Thanks, that’s the impression I got, too.
