MG Industries (MGI) President, Mack Gwinn, Jr. developed the MGI Rate and Recoil Reducing Buffer to cut recoil from AR-style rifles while increasing the shooter's hit ratio. With law enforcement agencies, military and competitive shooters demanding a more comfortable recoil-reduction platform, Mack adapted a technology originally from Counter Poise. The resulting MGI patented buffer is a self-adjusting, completely mechanical buffer with fewer parts to fail and none of the leakage associated with the common hydraulic or pneumatic buffers currently used. It is not uncommon for systems employing the MGI buffer to easily put over one million rounds through a single rifle without a rebuild doing nothing more than routine cleaning and lubing. The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department Training center is one of many LE agencies using the MGI buffer system for demonstrations and training. So impressed with the simplicity and ease of the system, their SWAT Team members now use the MGI buffer system as well.

The MGI buffer is a simple, drop-in unit that automatically adjusts to the individual rifle and decreases the rate of fire as it increases accuracy. The MGI buffer does not give the shooter that "first round" struggle when pulling the carrier to the rear, as is common with other competitive buffers. With no springs in the MGI buffer system to interfere with feed reliability, more rounds successfully hit the target with greater control and accuracy.  The muzzle climb is drastically reduced which allows the shooter more control to stay on target under single, semi or full auto. The MGI buffer is the choice of law enforcement, military units and competitive shooters who expect their rifles to perform under duress whether battle driven or during competitions without fail.

A D-fender D-Ring also comes with the MGI buffer that virtually eliminates extraction issues and can increase extractor spring force by four-times. The MGI Rate and Recoil Reducing Buffer is available at mgi-military.com for $165 (MSRP). For full-length stocks, MGI offers the Rate Reducing Buffer Rifle Stock adaptor for only $19.95 and for .308 rifles (AR-10) the Buffer Adaptor is available for just $19.95.
