Have questions on the buffer & slide system

I received a packet of 6 Wilson buffers for the 1911 pistol. One will be put on the recoil spring at the receiver end. I have removed the lip from the front of the slide handle and removed just enough material to clean up the front surface. Is there a desired space needed between the slide face and the gas block? What retains the forward buffer to keep it in place? Is it advisable to use 2 buffers at the receiver end? This is a mini 14 188 series. Thanks

I use one buffer, and slip it over the gas pipe. It will wear, and needs to be inspected/replaced periodically.

One only at each end.
They will stay in place on their own.
