I've used them before but I don't now. Just my opinion but I don't feel shock-buffs really offered that much protection.

I just use a Wolff 18.5 lb recoil spring and seems to be all the protection I need. My father has a 1911 from the early 70's with about 600,000 rounds through it and the barrel has been replaced but the frame and slide are still going strong, all this using 16 lb recoil spring and no shock-buffs.
