Can only speak to the Sprinco one. Evaluation was done with both, liked some loads, others numerous stovepipes.

Question becomes: Why? M9/92FS is one of the softest shooting 9mm. If your worried about frame wear, buy Wolff springs and change the recoil and hammer spring every 5000 rounds instead of the recommended 8000.

I'm a speed shooter and I'm looking for that extra edge - no matter how small it is...

I ran shock buffers in my 1911 for a short time. What I found was that they tend to tear up and cause more problems then they are worth. I don't know of any shooters that run them

If John Browning had felt there was a need for a buffer he would have created one. I would hazard to guess that Beretta would say the same thing.

What about the 2/3 of the ones I listed that use springs?

that is what I did find out the hard way. but you have to try but after looking at the choices the springco does look good. the one thing I wish I could find again I had a guide rod that held the spring captive in a 1911 made takedown faster. I think the company was called usa parts. they had a logo that looked something like the af markings.

just avoid anything with rubber or anything like that inside of your guns
