Glock 43 Tungsten Guide Rod needs Work
Bought two of the Stainless Steel rods, one of them stuck out as far as the barrel. There’s a screw on the end of it that will help tighten it, but still far. So I exchanged it for another one, with the marching GlockStore barrel to see if that made a difference. Nope. It’s still not flush. Pulled them both out & the Tungsten rod is slightly larger than the stock spring. Note: I have the black Glock 19 tungsten rod & it’s 100% flush & fits perfectly & the recoil reduction is amazing. I wish the Glock 43 was the same way. I personally do not recommend this product.
tungsten guide rod for g43
Spring tension light enough allow slide to creep slightly when trigger is depressed. I've upgraded the trigger and believe trigger pull weight feels less friction with the factory guide rod installed.
I actually tried 3 recoil spring assemblies in my search. This is the best. I had a hard time convincing myself to spend the coin on a tungsten RSA. I am so glad I did. I can now shoot my 43 faster than my 19. It comes back on target in no time, ready to go again. Good sights and a good connector help, but I shot the same setup with 3 different RSA and this is by far the best. Fit is perfect. Is protrudes same as stock setup. Soaks up a bunch of recoil. Its 4x as heavy as stock.
It just flat works. Best thing for a 43.
Very Nice Product

I added the standard one, and the 3.5 connector, so I am commenting on both, since I shot after installing both. The weight added by the rod you can feel, reducing slightly the recoil and allowing you to reaquire the target more quickly. The trigger pull is crisper. I have been shooting Glock's since the late 1980's, and I have now shot my very best grouping ever.
FYI folks - I just installed the guide rod in my G48 and it works perfectly.
Made me nervous at first but works great.
When I replaced the factory guide rod with this product it works fine when firing it. But after replacing it and getting the gun back together I racked it a few times and the slide wasnt going all the way forward... made me extremely nervous. After firing 4 mags through it of around 32 rounds all together. I racked it a few times to c if it was due to a break in period and it works fine now. Slide fully engages and doesnt stop short now. Still giving 4 stars due to making me nervous about possibly getting a lemon.. and no there was no misfires while shooting
