The Glockstore Heavy Tungsten Guide Rod is the most popular upgrade for Glock owners worldwide. It's an easy, drop in part that is 5x heavier than the factory plastic part and 3x heavier than our Stainless Steel Guide Rod.
You'll find that you will shoot faster and more accurately with our Tungsten Guide Rod installed. The increased weight of the rod helps reduce felt-recoil and muzzle flip enabling you to keep your sights aligned and shoot tighter groups in faster times.

Advanced shooters know that to get the most out of their gun, shooting style, and ammunition combination they need to test different spring weights for their guide rod assembly. You can actually "tune" the spring to your shooting cadence to allow you to shoot faster and more accurately because the gun action works with you and your ammunition. These are drop-in, high quality tungsten guide rods with captured springs in 5 different weights for your full-size guns and 4 different weights for the mid-size guns.
Senior citizens and those with less strength and physical disabilities will find that the lighter spring weights are much easier to manipulate and function the slide for loading and unloading procedure. For example, many of our customers with arthritis utilize a lighter spring weight.
On the other side of that, if you are shooting very heavy loads for hunting or self-defense, you may want to experiment with heavier spring weights.

If you are not hand loading your ammunition, or shooting notably light, or hot loads from the factory, it is advised you stay with the factory spring weight
for your Glock. A lesser weight spring can be used with low power loads, vice versa with high power loads.
These guide rods will not function
in sub-compact Glocks (i.e., Glocks 26, 27, 30, etc.). Those weapons utilize a dual spring guide rod system that can be found here.
To use these Gen 3 guide rods in your Gen 4 Glock, you will need the Gen4 Recoil Assemly Adaptor Ring - SKU #1113
