Default Any opinions on recoil reduction systems?

The ones that replace the guide rod. I've been seeing them from different places and now I'm curious.

If I were to get one, a sig p226. But I just want to know if they actually work or if they're snake oil.

I don't know much about them but I'm sure their functionality is model and caliber specific. The extra info should help when one of our more knowledgeable members comes across your thread.

I have one in my Sig 1911, I think it makes a great difference in felt recoil and speed of follow up shots.

I have a Sprinco recoil reducer in my S&W 1006 on my hip right now. The owner of the company is a buddy, so I got mine for free. I REALLY like it. It tames the full power 10mm ammo nicely.

As far as the AK buffers, they have a reputation for cracking frames

I heard it effects reliability in smaller calibers (my favorites), which is why I'm concerned. No one get on for me for this but I wanted one for a 9millie p226.
