Hi, I'm trying to decide what kind of rod I should get for my G21 and G23. The only mod is the 3.5 connector. I use the G23 for carry and G21 for home/vehicle defense and once a while I carry it too. I hear all this stuff about the SS rod is 3 times heavier and the tungsten even more than that. I'm liking the SS because of the price but I wonder if it really helps with muzzle flip? I hear both sides of this story. I also wonder about the tungsten guide rod regarding durability and muzzle flip as well.

Can owners of each type of rod give me some feedback please? The good and the bad. Thanks.

Ive been wondering about this my self. Here you go I found this. http://www.glockforum.com/forum/f11/tungsten-gide-rod-vs-stainless-steel-1128/

People need to start treating people alittle better around here.
Thanks Punisher. Yeah I found that thread. It still kinda of confusing since I found people mentioned they do and don't feel a difference with SS or tungsten. Also found that some tungten rods may not be durable.

Im deciding mostly toward SS rod so far.

My 17 is seven years old. What are some signs that I should replace my recoil spring assembly? Runs like a champ at this point. I use it for GSSF competitions.
If you refer to the OEM glock assembly you replace it if you see any cracks on it. The test they teach in armorer's school is with the gun unloaded(of course) point it up at 45 degree angle. squeeze the trigger and hold it. Grab the slide and slowly pull back about 1/4". Release the slide. If the slide returns to full battery the recoil spring is good. if it gets stuck or you have to push it to go full battery is time to replace it.
