recoil buffers

Have any of you used these rubber buffers for a 1911 from Wilson combat.

I tried them. I hated them. Won't use them.

Are you referring to these ?? If so I had never heard of them until now...

Yup, those are them. I bought a kit of them, used one of them once.

At the time--years ago--one gunwriter did a test and sheared off a piece, causing a stoppage.

I figured that Tussey could fix anything I could break on the pistol, but not my body if my defensive piece suffered a stoppage.

I gave the unused buffers and the replacement rod to a guy with an aluminum frame Colt.

Very interesting concept..For $7 they would be worth a try and if ya don't like them you just pitch them...

Could they fall apart ??

EDIT..Chico answered my question..

I used them on my Colt for years. You need to replace them once in awhile, but they def buffer things down. Never had an issue with them.

When I had feeding issues with my Tactical Pro I called the factory and the first question they asked if I was using them. They told me not to. Just saying.

I have probably read a few hundred reviews on them today on other forums and it's 50/50...

Like anything else, some love them and some hate them...

I will keep my guns like the factory made them...W/O
