Heavy Tungsten Guide Rod for Mini-Glocks
Ratings & Reviews
Excellent little upgrade to improve speed and accuracy
Picked this up for my carry 33 Gen 4. It was a snug fit initially. The guide-rod bore in my factory slide had a little bit of a rough burr edge that kept the new rod from punching through initially. Worked through it by hand in about 5 minutes and now have a nice snug fit. I opted for the 18lb spring. My thinking being that this is my carry gun and I only shoot hot defensive loads with it. I also wanted the extra piece of mind of that extra 2lbs pushing and locking in the next round. At the range I can see some improvement. Repeat shots came instantly as I could regain sight-picture much faster. There is a bit of a reduction in felt recoil, but it is not substantial. All in all, I am very happy with the heavy tungsten guide-rod in my subcompact carry. It is just that little bit of extra, for when it counts most.
Nice quality and built much better than the Glock guide rod, I have no doubt that it would show in performance as well, I was going to hold off on review till I actually put a few rounds through 26 but I decided to change the build to a 26 Long and I ordered a tungsten guide rod for the 19. Wish I could say more but all I can say for now, it looks high quality and I'm sure it is!
