I read an ad for this little plastic square that attaches inside to the rifle that is suppose to reduce recoil and improve the life of the parts. is any of it true? any advice? I just bought a m1a, I wouldn't mind paying 15.00 to save hundreds on repairs in the future!~! thanks

I have one on my Standard Model M1A, I also use one in my 1911.
Although I've never fired the M1A it without it, so I can't give a before & after.

I don't itís not needed, but I'm of the mind that if it doesn't compromise reliability and softening the battering of the Op-Rod against eh receiver I'll use it, I'm not sure it prolongs the life of the weapon significantly but it makes me feel better...
