There’s not a whole lot of info about SwissBianco recoil buffers in this video. You might even say none; I couldn’t possibly comment. The U.S. immigrant’s website is only slightly more illuminating. [Hint: cycle through the photo album.] For that we turn to Brownell’s website where the product description specialists deliver the goods (so to speak): “Polyurethane buffer cushions the impact of the slide against the frame during recoil, resulting in less wear to the gun, less fatigue on the hand and arm, and less muzzle rise. Reduces felt recoil so you can get back on target quickly for faster, more accurate follow-up shots. Each buffer is precision CNC cut from a sheet of ultra-tough, tear-resistant polyurethane. Drop-in installation without any permanent alteration to the firearm. Models available to fit Beretta 92 and Glock pistols.” We’re in. Report to follow.


  1. It might be similar in concept to the buffer on the recoil spring assembly of my H&K USP Compact. It’s not something that I’d remove since it’s a factory part but H&K does say that it does all the things that Swiss Bianco is claiming theirs does.

  2. If they’re like most recoil buffers then they will probably get chewed up and jam the firearm at an inopportune time.

    I’m of the opinion that if you can’t handle the recoil of a certain firearm/caliber then you probably aren’t getting enough training with it or should have bought something else you can handle.
