instead of using washers/buffers, they use a tubing that sleeves over the recoil spring to increase the tension. Many players short stroke so much that the slide cycles barely enough to chamber the next round. Dont forget, if your AIP short stroke spring or recoil spring is soo stiff, you will consume more gas trying to pull that slide back.
