The complete recoil reduction system (including magnet/weight piece), no, but I do have one of their guide rods for my M&P9fs. I have shot a few hundred rounds with it and haven't yet had a malfunction. To me, the "feel" of the recoil is softer, more push less snap.
The guide rod ships with with two different springs. One for lower power ammo and one for hotter loads. I haven't notice a difference running either of the two springs. Federals from Wal-Mart, WWB, and some old Federal Hydra-Shocks have all functioned with both springs.
I may be splitting hairs here but my only complaint with the DPM guide rod is that upon holstering the slide moves out of battery more than it does with the stock unit. Its not a big deal but when I first started using it it took some time to get used to riding the back of the slide into the holster with my thumb.
