Recoil Buffers Anyone?

Do any Hi Powers owners have recoil buffers installed in their weapons? If so, whose do you use and do you like it?

I tried to install a Buffer Technologies recoil buffer in my 1982-manufactured FN Hi Power and couldn't get it to install properly.

I would be interested to hear from others on this subject.

Thanks to all.

Hello. I use the Buffer Tech in mine for range use and note no problems.

I have used the "Shock-Tec" type recoil rod with the built-in shock-absorber on my 6" Comp model for plate matches and several other BHP's and they seem to work just fine; tried the buffer-tecs that's similar to the ones I use on my gold cup commander, but it didnot work as well for me on the HP.
Thumbing through a King's catalog lately, I noticed they have been producing the same type "shock-absorber" guide rod for years; guess I'll have to do a search on this type shock-buff on the .45 forum area.

I installed the Buffer Technologies recoil buffer in my BHP a while back. Maybe it was my fault for not installing it properly, but I couldn't seem to get it to stay oriented correctly on the rod, itself. For now, I have removed it and will simply make sure I have a spring strong enough for the loads I shoot.
