Just got my 2nd Colt. First was a King Cobra(back in early 1980's), and just got my MK IV 70, 1911. My brother-outlaw said I should get some shock-buffers. Any suggestions as to weather or not I should install buffers?...Steve.

Welcome from the Gunshine State, Steve. I've never used shock buffers on any of the Colt Officers .45 ACPs I've owned, even with the supposed extra recoil of those models. I never thought the recoil was really that severe and have never suffered a damaged guide rod or broken springs. I dunno. Maybe try them and see. Sit tight for now. More experienced members will be along very shortly.

Welcome to the forum. I use shock buffs in one of my kimbers. The one that gets the most range time. I would not use them in a carry piece for fear of tearing or binding. They probably do help absorbe some of the shock from the slide recoil.
