Rubber Piece Found Inside Glock 21 Slide
February 19, 2012
I purchased a used glock 21 last week, and found a rubber piece inside the
slide in front of the guide rod and spring. I can not find this part on any
diagram or video. I like to know what it is used for. Is it to help reduced
the recoil or produce more spring pounds. Or is it just to help the the
guide rod stay in place.
Response - Dave,
If I had to guess I would think it would be a recoil buffer (helps prevent
wear), especially since your Glock 21 is 45 caliber. I have never seen or
used one, but I do see them often in catalogs and on the internet.
"Recoil buffers are an easy and inexpensive way to eliminate damage of
critical components by preventing the metal to metal contact of the slide or
breech block with the frame. Made from a high density polyurethane
formulated for maximum shock-absorbing characteristics, the recoil buffer is
a drop-in part."
"The Shok-Buff prevents the slide from battering the frame during recoil by
sandwiching a 1/10" thick poly fiber buffer between the slide and frame
contact areas. Provides the optimum balance between shock absorption and
longevity. Easily replaceable after absorbing up to 1,000 rounds of repeated
firings, the Shok-Buff slides over the recoil spring guide between the guide
and spring. Fits Glock models 17, 17L, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 24C, 31
Is this what it looks like?
If not, I would recommend you do a Google image search using the search
words "glock 21 recoil buffer" and other variations and see if you can find
the part that looks like yours. I would be curious to know what you find
