Smooth, Polished Surface Improves Reliability
Solid stainless steel one-piece guide rod is polished smooth to help prevent spring bind, reduce slide drag, and improve reliability with less chance of slide stoppage caused by grit or dirt. Mild heat-treat hardening improves rod wear without increasing slide wear. Added weight up front helps counter recoil; shoulder at flange is sized to help retain recoil spring for easy assembly and disassembly. For use with factory recoil springs only. Gunsmith installation recommended.
