Stainless Steel Competition Guide Rod for Mini-Glocks
Ratings & Reviews
My glock 26 shot noticeably more flat. Tighten up my double tap groups. Also made the G26 feel more balance. When looking down the sights I notice my front sight is less shaky.
I ordered this spring for a recently purchased G30S.
This adds a little extra weight at the front, reduces flip, and helps me with better groupings.
The 30S can definitely be a "handful of gun" however this helps to bring it under better control.
Money well spent as the OEM part is plastic.
This was the fix...
I built a Polymer 80 PF940SC. I consider myself to be very capable mechanically. From the second I built this kit my G26 jammed on every shot. The slide was also very difficult to rack. Not only did it not eject properly but it also stove piped on every shot. It was frustrating cause without functioning properly...this was a complete waste of money...to the tune of over $600.00. After disassembly numerous times and polishing-mirror like- all parts that would contact each other, I saw some vids on you tube about malfunction guide rods and springs. The original was an 0-8-2. I bought another 0-8-2 from here and it did the same thing... I will not call it stock because in my case the original spring was DEAD wrong for this build. Getting a stainless steel rod and the 14 lb. spring makes this lil G26 a pleasure to own and now shoot. It is unbelievable how well it now fires...Thanks GlockStore for you professionalism and efficiency. Well done.
A big improvement over the stock part.
Yes!! A more solid feel while shooting. Grouping improved.
Just give them a shot
The glockstore.com has yet to fail!! They have been my go to for the past year.
Quality is everything when your working on your own or repairs, upgrades for a client.

This stainless steel guide rod for my Glock 30 .45 is a great improvement over the OEM plastic rod. This is the first thing, one should do to their Glock. And its a simple drop in part, only takes a couple of minutes to install yourself. Now I have to get one for my 9 mm.
Guide Rod for Mini Glocks

I just got my stainless guide rod today, after a very long wait, but it was worth it. These guide rods are a great product worth every penny. My slides operate much smoother now. My Glock 26 and 30 both shoot faster holding a tighter group now, and with less recoil. If you want to make a change on your glock, I suggest changing out the old plastic guide rod, you will be glad you did. Thanks GS
Takes Away Most p80 Headaches
Fine-tuning a p80 can be tricky, especially with a bunch of custom parts. I have two g26 p80s, both built with different parts kits, and both have problems with slide stop and racking slide all way back. They often will not lock when mag is empty. One came with a super-old gen 3 guide rod, the other kit came with a double-spring guide rod. I have tried everything! (I think it is the Tyrant slide stops, and I may Dremel them some).
I purchased one of these rods to see if I could get better function. Immediately, the gun worked proper, with slide stop working. So if you have slide stop problems, and have tried everything, give this a try, especially if you are using aftermarket slide stops like Tyrant CNC, SUre Touch, or extended.
PLUS the gun functions better. I just ordered a second one of these for my other build. I am also sure it is because of the Tyrant CNC pieces, which are still my favorites of all time.
I ordered one in 21lb spring for my Glock 30s and I got significant reduction in recoil, muzzle drop is not as exaggerated as you would think ..it is very minimal. Ordered one for my Glock 26 with oem spring rate . Waiting for that one to come in the mail.
