My first post on this forum. My question is what is the purpose of the plastic buffer on the guide rod? Is it necessary? Will the pistol operate safely without it? I am thinking about buying this gun in 45 in like new condition, but I am concerned about the supply for this one part.

Best regards,

The buffer on the USP Compact is designed to prevent the tang on the front of the slide from impacting the locking point on the receiver frame during recoil.
No worries about parts supply for many years to come. With how many rounds it would take to wear one out, just buy a spare now and you'll most likely be good for your life time and beyond.

Its a Buffer, the pistol was designed to work with it, not without it. If it breaks apart replace it or the entire Recoil Guiderod Assembly...going to take many thousands of rounds to break it I suspect...have fun trying! :D

I've never heard or seen a buffer wear out on the HK pistol.
