    My plastic rod n spring gave out after awhile in my g27 so i replaced it with an ss rod n spring n it wrked better than ever. Id say its a good but cheap investment towards ur glock and well worth it.

    Depending on what pound of spring you put in it, it can also reduce recoil and muzzle climb, a good investment

    The factory rod in my G36 had more flex in it than my G19C. And I wasn't at all happy with the groupings. Changed to a s/s rod from the glockstore.com and it tightened the accuracy right up.

    For how inexpensive they are, I guess putting one in a G23 isn't going to hurt.

    What weight do you suggest that will do this but not cause any malfunctions?

    That's depends on you, your gun, and you load. What Glock do you have and what do you shoot from it, practice and carry?
     
  9. Stick with the default spring weight, I know the G29/30/36 are 17lbs.

    I was just looking at the tungsten RSA today for my G30. It's a crazy $70! However, I was at the range on Monday practicing my double-tap and realized just how much flip I was getting on my 2nd round, as well as loss of accuracy.

    If I get the tungsten, I'll get it for the reduced flip but I'll keep the same spring weight.

    My stock RSA broke and I replaced it with stock and thought it works fine, but that was because I was only firing one round at a time at a target and accuracy was acceptable.

    I have a Glock 23, and I usually shoot 180gr. FMJ out of it for practice and 165 gr. for carry ammo.

    I forgot to ask if it is a Gen 4, if so, you already have the heavier spring. I have not tried this in a G23, but I have talked to people that claimed to have the 20lb spring in theirs and they swear by it. The 17lb should be stock size. Glockstore.com has the kits with the SS rods and captured springs, I would recommend this type. The difference is the guide rod has a retaining clip on the end the keeps the spring from flying off.

    If you have the money, I would starting with the 17 and move up, then sell the ones you don't need.

    Is it better, depends on who ya ask. I was a 1911 guy forever and felt it was an upgrade. Lone Wolf 17lb ss guide rod was what I installed in my G17...never an issue and suggests it to everyone locally!

    I rock the Lone Wolf ss rod a well with stock spring weight. It's a beautiful thing.
