This performance part will fit Generation 1, 2 & 3 guns and will last longer and provide better cycling action than the factory plastic part. It comes fully assembled and complete with the spring already captured on the the Stainless Steel Guide Rod - just drop it into your GLOCK - no gunsmithing required!
If you're not hand loading your ammunition or shooting notable light loads or hot loads from the a recognized manufacturer we suggest you select the factory weight spring.
Factory Spring Tensions:
- G17/17L/22/24/31/34/35/35 = 17lbs
- G20/20SF/21/21SF = 17lbs
- G19/23/32 = 18lbs
If you are shooting a ported or compensated barrel or using a suppressor, we suggest you select a lighter spring weight. Likewise, if you are
shooting light loads or wish to have a slide that takes less force to cycle (ie, you have arthritis or other disabilities or don't have the strength) you may wish to select a lighter weight spring. Please call us for professional guidance.
This Gen 3 Guide Rod will function in Gen 4 Glocks by utilizing a Gen4 Recoil Assemly Adaptor Ring - SKU #1113
.Please read before calling:
If you're not handloading 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.
