Buffer Tec opinion

1045 1
When I first bought my M1a I orderd a Buffer Tec and it has been on the rifle from the start.

(Buffer tech Installed)

I can see (if work the operating rod) that the thing does contact the operating rod and looks like it would probubly be an effective way of getting rid of some viberation and shock but Who knows. SO: I am asking everybody their opinion on the advantage or disdvantage of this device.

Also: How long do these things last?

I have one on my loaded standard, it doesnt seem to detract from the performance of the rifle, so I left it where it is. From what I have read its not to reduce the recoil of the cycling, its just to eliminate the metal to metal contact.
