Reduce Recoil and Muzzle Flip....Improve Accuracy and Speed.

Our Tungsten Guide Rods are one of the most significant and popular upgrades you can add to your Glock. It's a simple, drop in part that makes a huge difference. You will immediately notice the improvement in the way your gun shoots and feels and in the way you shoot - Faster and More Accurately!

For Generation 1, 2, and 3 Glocks - Made in USA
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.

A high quality, American made spring included and captured on the Tungsten Guide Rod as pictured. You simply drop it in and replace the factory plastic rod in seconds! We suggest you order the factory weight spring for most general shooting.

Factory Weight Spring is 17lbs for the following Gen 1, 2, 3 Glocks:
G17, 20, 21, 20SF, 21SF, 22, 31, 34, 35

Factory Weight Spring is 18lbs for the following Gen 1, 2, 3 Glocks:
G19, G23, G32

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.

Made in the USA buy men who own and appreciate firearms!

Please read before calling:

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.

Works great have had no problems. Got my parts yesterday 2 days sooner than expected. Put parts in my polymer 80 took it out and it shoot great.

For sure beats the plastic one that come with the gun.

I think this is a must have for any Glock. It's a drop in part anyone could install and adds a bit of weight to the gun as well durability.

15 lb

15 lb spring is perfect (for me)

Perfect For Rapid Fire

by

As a LEO of 22 years, I was looking for something that would help me rapid fire on target more reliably. With our duty weapon, the Glock 19, even though the recoil isn't bad I noticed that it took me a little too much time to put the sights back on target after a round (especially from 15 yards or more). Not long, but still, fractions of a second can make all the difference. The heavy tungsten gives my firearm exactly the weight, recoil and quick sights on target that I've been wishing for.

Works great

Heavy duty...

by

The heavy tungsten guide rod and heavy 20# spring really reduced the muffle flip on my G19. Highly recommended!

Worth the investment

by

Got the 15lb for my Gen 3 17 and it really helped tighten my group

I LOVE THE GLOCKSTORE!!!!!!!!

by

I just received the new tungsten guide rod and recoil spring in the mail yesterday, 6/3/19. I was going to buy the same tungsten set up for my glock 26 gen 5 but I was skeptical about if I would notice any difference being that I am a beginner. So I didn't not make the purchase. The next day I went to the range to test out the tungsten set up with my polymer 80 build g17 and what a difference. I sure did notice a change when firing my weapon, I put 200 rounds through it. I will definitely purchase the tungsten guide rod and recoil assembly for my glock 26 gen 5 asap. Thank you glock store. Lenny helped seal the deal with his awesome videos.

Piece of cake and piece of mind

by

When putting this next to the Glock provided guide rod you can see the quality difference. I can't tell the difference in feel but I do believe this guide rod will never be the focus of a yet to come future firing issue. It's solid.
