Default SI Glock buffer review.

SI Glock buffer.

I had recently tested and written a review on the Strike Industries buffer for the M&P variants. Since I had a great experience with the M&P buffer and still run it in my pistol I decided to try the Glock Buffer as well. I was intrigued to see if the different design made a difference compared to other buffers.

The Strike Industries Glock buffer fits nicely in the front end of the slide, held in place by the recoil spring. I like the fact that you can also take the buffer out any time you choose to do so. When the pistol is reassembled I am happy to see that the buffer did not impede the slide whatsoever and even gave a softer feel when racking the slide back. I also didn’t notice as much shortening in the slide as I have noticed with other buffers so there is no worry about the issue of non ejecting casings that you can find with other buffers.

When it comes to the performance of the buffer it sure works as advertised. I took my Glock out to my local range and put a few hundred rounds through the pistol with and without the buffer installed. I have to say I will be keeping this buffer in my pistol and putting SI buffers in any other pistols I have that will take them. (SI buffers are available for M&P, Springfield XD/XDM and Glock variants). With the Buffer installed I noticed much less recoil, muzzle rise and “snap” if you will. I found that during rapid fire groups I had a much tighter pattern as well. The biggest difference I noticed was after a few hundred rounds I had a significant decrease in hand soreness and wrist discomfort compared to how my hand usually feels after some time at the range. The bottom line is if you’re looking for an inexpensive addition to your pistol that reduces recoil and diminishes hand soreness then Strike Industries Shock Buffer is the way to go for any of your pistols.
