    Hey guys, I traded my hi-cap springfield 1911 for a glock 21SF and he threw in a 45 super barrel, SS guide rod and recoil spring and a ghost trigger kit. I think I did great. I just wonder if anyone uses the SS guide rod and recoil spring in their stock glock. I am thinking it is not a good idea because the factory one flex's and the SS doesn't. Do you think it is ok to use the SS one or not, I believe it's a 24lb setup. What are your thoughts.

    I've a Glock 22 .40Cal and I'm using a SS 22lb setup with it. I'm about at 1000+ rounds fired already with it and I got ZERO problems. Everything is nice and smooth.

    I'm using the same with a recoil buffer, no problems here either.

    I've heard that a Glock will still function fine with a broken guide rod and it's only purpose is to hold the spring together for reassembly.
    If true, I wouldn't spend extra $'s to add weight.

    Any Glock armorer opinion's?

    Ive used an ss guide rod in all my glocks but i stuck with factory weight.

    I personally have never swapped out my factory installed guide rod,

    and probably never will unless it were to break...

    Glock perfection, can't toy with that logic, would like to give it a try though.
