The Sub-Compact Heavy Tungsten Guide Rod is 3x heavier than the factory plastic and almost twice as heavy as the Stainless Steel Guide Rod.

The extra weight of our tungsten guide rods for your subcompact Glock helps the gun shoot better and feel better. You'll be able to shoot faster and more accurately while reducing recoil and muzzle jump. It's a drop-in part with the dual springs included and captured on the rod.

Will fit both the Gen3, Gen4, and Gen5 mini-Glocks (G26,G27,G33) as well as Glock Model 29,30, and 36. The guide rods for the Gen3 and Gen4 Sub Compact Glocks are interchangeable. Also fits SF Model Sub Compacts!

For most applications and just about all ammo, chose the factory weight springs. For lighter loads or reloads or shooting with a compensator or ported barrel or silencer....choose the lighter weight springs. For heavier loads, self-defense or hunting ammo.....choose the heavier weight springs.

Spring Weight Sets are available as follows, use the boxed menu above to select spring weight:

G26/27/33/39 - 16lbs factory weight
  • Also available in 14lbs, 18lbs, 20lbs, 22lbs

G29/30/G30SF/30S/36 - 17lbs factory weight
  • Also available in 15lbs, 19lbs, 21lbs, 23lbs

Our Heavy Tungsten Guide Rods drop in easily without any gunsmithing required. You can select the spring weight you desire based on your shooting style, ammunition used and recoil management you require. The Dual Spring Guide Rod assembly is used in the subcompact Glock handguns.

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.

Made in USA by men who appreciate and know firearms!

Please read before calling:
If you're 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.

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!

Surprisingly effective at improving recoil management and accuracy


Smaller pistols inherently jump more when firing, making it harder to get tight groups at speed. The heavy tungsten guide rod shifts the balance so that the jump is more manageable. For me, it immediately resulted in a noticeable improvement in accuracy. I'd buy this guide rod again.

Love it but has one issue.


It is heavy and a nice product. My only annoyance is that the spring is loose/slightly too big at the nose (unlike the one I have for my gen 4 g23 that has a cover) so it is kinda hard to insert and remove at times. Otherwise it works great after you bend the spring in slightly so it doesn't overlap the front.
