When firing a semi-automatic pistol, the slide recoils rearward at great speed, and then comes to an immediate stop (collision) against the frame at full recoil. This force and impact to the frame is constantly weakening the slide and vibrating the internal parts, potentially compromising or wearing parts prematurely, and and excessive recoil results in turning movements in the shooters wrist. This sudden “collision” causes a violent muzzle jump which temporarily pulls the pistol off target and upwards, causing a need for dual-action buffers.
The BHSpringSolutions/EFK Fire Dragon Dual-Stage Buffering Recoil Spring Guide rod offers these advantages:
- Impact: The reduction of slide velocity just before impact with the frame preserves the structural integrity of the firearm – and your rather significant investment!
- Muzzle Control: By changing the final backward movement of the slide from a sudden stop to a progressive stop, muzzle jump is greatly decreased by up to 40% giving you more control.
- Function: No interference with feeding ammunition or extracting empty shell casings. The slide pull the empty shell casing into the Ejector prior to the slide reaching full recoil – the Dual-Stage Buffering Recoil Spring Guide Rod’s INFLUENCE Starts after the slide’s rearward velocity has achieved the Extraction Sequence.
- Progressive: This is a system designed to reduce the backward velocity of the slide in progressive stages after the gun is shot. The effect of this system is that the recoil is reduced by 40% making your follow up shots much easier to shoot. This is a VERY effective system.
- Stability: Better stability for your barrel. Stainless steel guide rod replaces guide rods for superior barrel support and function.
- Better Accuracy: Progressively slows down your slide from heavy impact against the frame. Works just like a car shock absorber, reducing the slide impact. Lower impact means less recoil, accurate recovery of the weapon for on-target accuracy is better achieved, shot after shot. Even expert shooters can benefit from lower recoil.
- Lower Frame Shock: The slide is one of the heaviest components in a semi-automatic pistol. Upon firing, the slide slams back with great energy against the frame. The Dual-Stage Buffering Recoil Spring Guide Rod can lower this slide impact dramatically, preventing excessive wear.
- Why 3 strengths of Buffering Springs? Some shooters of “light reloads” and competitive shooters using very light reloads may find the Light Buffering Spring preferable for function and control of already reduced recoil. Some shooters with weak hands might find slide racking against the Heavy Buffering Spring to be a little much, and may prefer the Medium Buffering Spring. And a myriad of other possible scenarios can make the user’s choice of strengths in the Buffering Springs, an advantage.
- Universal Drop In Fit: Direct replacement for your factory Hi-Power recoil spring guide rod assembly. No modifications required.

QUESTIONS (from BHVets) & ANSWERS
NEW – BHSpringSolutions
Buffering Recoil Spring Guide Rod Assembly
Q: Is the New Buffering Recoil Spring Guide Rod Assembly compatible with FN/Browning .40S&W Hi-Powers?
A: Absolutely! The buffering action is exactly the same and will be appreciated by owners of .40S&W HP!
Q: I have a .357Sig Barrel for my Browning .40S&W Hi-Power. Will the New Buffering Recoil Spring Guide Rod help with the excessive muzzle jump that I experience?
A: YES! This scenario is probably the most needy for the New Buffering Recoil Spring Guide Rod for Hi-Power!
Q: Is the “Ball Spring”, that applies pressure to the Slide Stop, replaceable?
A: Yes. And this is an important question. The Hi-Power’s Recoil Spring Guide Rod is not just a Rod that Guides the Recoil Spring – it is also the Command and Control of the Hi-Power’s Slide Stop positioning/function. When the spring inside a TRADITIONAL HP Recoil Spring Guide Rod gets 25+ years on it, its’ ability to do its’ job starts to go away. Because our design of the parts in this area of the New Buffering Guide Rod Assembly and the Ball Spring design, we don’t expect replacement of the Ball Spring in the New Buffering Recoil Spring Guide Rod to be necessary for a very long time. The Ball Spring is both a stout and barely compressed spring – meaning, we accomplished excellent pressure on the ball that controls the HP Slide Stop, with very little compression and stress on the ball spring – a combination that can produce very long spring life in an application.
Instructions will be included with the New Buffering Recoil Spring Guide Rod that will fully explain disassembly of this area of the Assembly for replacement of the Ball Spring, and of course Replacement Springs will be readily available from BHSpringSolutions.com.
Q: Could the Buffering Recoil Spring Guide Rod cause excessive forward slide velocity?
A: No. From the point of full recoil, the Buffering Recoil Spring Guide Rod is going to contribute to forward slide velocity for only about the first 3/8” of forward slide travel, (which will produce more positive “stripping” of the next round from the magazine without increasing the strength of your recoil spring) and after that first 3/8” of forward slide travel, there is no difference in the influence that returns your slide to the forward battery position.
Q: How often should I replace the Recoil Buffering Spring?
A: As a “best practices approach, BHSpringSolutions LLC will recommend the same “5 Year / 5,000 Round” replacement schedule for the Buffering Spring used in the New Buffering Recoil Spring Guide Rod… same as we recommend for all springs in the Hi-Power pistol.
Q: Are there any known compatibility issues in ANY Hi-Power pistols from any manufacturers?
A: Only one. The Hi-Powers made years ago in Canada by Ingliss and the identical Ishapore 1A still made today in India at Rifle Factory Ishapore – these Hi-Powers will also require replacement of the Slide Stop (e.g. BHSS/RDIH Extended Slide Stop for HP). All other Hi-Powers made in Belgium, Hungary, Isreal, Bulgaria, U.S., Germany, Turkey, just replace the OEM Recoil Spring Guide Rod with the New BHSS Buffering Recoil Spring Guide Rod and enjoy shooting with less recoil and muzzle jump!
