Responding to demands from law enforcement professionals, Buffer Technologies recently added the SIG P229 to the family of recoil buffers that it produces. Like Buffer Technologies’ other SIG and Beretta buffers, the SIG P229 includes a new stainless steel guide rod with a shock-absorbing polyurethane buffer. The factory spring is retained. The stainless steel rod is a stronger, non-corrosive improvement over factory rods. Recoil buffers eliminate the metal-to-metal impact of the slide as it hits the frame. Over time, this continued force and impact may weaken the slide and jar internal workings of the gun, leading to cracks or cause a malfunction.
