    Simular product has been available for years for 1911's.
    Designed mainly to reduce wear from metal to metal contact on the 1911.
    Doubt will have a noticeable recoil reduction, but will give it a try for $10

    Like to see how it does on a 40 or 45 instead of a 9mm.... If its only 10$ ill probably end up getting one a trying it out for the heck of it.

    If you are having metal to metal your spring is too weak.
    IIRC I DO have one in my 1911 but that was put there a very long time ago.
    I'll wait until my first XD rattles itself to death before I worry about such non-sense.

    Just looked at each of my XD's the only "wear" in that area is some shiny on the front of the lock block next to the rails. This area is where the little top ears of the device would hit and given such small surfaces that poly piece is gonna shred pretty quick and more importantly, if your recoil spring is even slightly off-center it's gonna be malf city in there.
    Mall ninjas are gonna eat this up, I'll stay away thanks.

    Yeah, I'm not so sure about that thing. I agree with Kaboom, seems like it has the potential cause more problems than it is worth.
