Does the dpm for 1911 work well does it really make it more reliable also would it fit in a Ruger sr1911.

Is this what you are talking about?

DPM Recoil Reduction System

I'm a 1911 fan, and have been on a few 1911 specific forums for a few years and I've never heard of this before.

I generally stay away from those kind of things. I prefer the standard GI style short guide rod and standard recoil spring.

On every Bullseye line I have shot with I know of virtually no one who uses these, from Sharpshooter to High Master, and we will spend money on just about anything!

So no, I would have to say the DPM offers really very little.

You may need to replace the standard plug for a reverse plug in addition to the guiderod spring assembly. I would keep it stock, maybe try a Wilson Combat recoil buffer, they actually make a small but noticeable difference. I use an STI Recoilmaster in an STI Trojan 9mm wow what a difference. I first used it with the stock 1 piece guiderod, then a WC recoil buffer and then was given the STI Recoilmaster, I will keep the Recoilmaster in place. I am not familiar with the DPM recoil systems, For about $80 you will know if they are worth it. If you are not using it in competition, then keep it stock, just my 2 cents.

The DPM recoil spring for 1911 are pretty new to the market I believe.

So, just because you may not have seen them used yet should not mean any thing.

I'd be interested in hearing 1st hand comments as well.

I haven't tried the DPM, but I do keep a recoil buffer in my SW1911, which is my main carry-gun and most trusted semi-auto. I tried it with and without a lot at the range before deciding to keep it in the gun. Hasn't affected reliability at all, and adds a little 'cush' to the recoil that I do like. I also know a gunsmith who's tried it and doesn't like the 'cush' feel that I just mentioned, so it can definitely be a preference thing. One thing I wonder about them, is if they take any strain off the barrel link. After watching a 1911 gunsmithing video recently, I do know that the slide hits the frame/recoil-spring-guide with every shot, so I imagine the buffer takes a little stress off of all that, but this is in a gun that's designed to take thousands of rounds with no worries...
