I bought a glock 21 (gen 3) used and the guide rod feels really limp. You can bend it with two fingers and it's harder to rack the slide on my dads 19 than it is on the 21. Should I replace it with a steel rod?
The guide rod only guides. Does not require strength, the plastic rods can last thousands of rounds if properly handled.tnmoondog said:Hey thanks guys! I already love this forum . I am a huge glock fan and that is all I have ever carried but this is my first 45 so it's all kind of new to me. I have not fired it yet but I have never seen a guide rod so dinky before in my life
that being said, I am considering a tungsten RSA (recoil spring assembly) for my G30 since muzzle flip is rather excessive due to the short barrel.PettyOfficer said:The metal rods only offer muzzle weight to provide "perceived reduced muzzle flip" (according to the marketing noise).
