Let’s face it. Manufacturers are using molded plastic guide rods as a cost cutting measure. Plastic guide rods offer “adequate” performance and durability for their intended purpose for most shooters. Statistically, they hold up well. Replacing the plastic rod with a B~T rod is a surefire way to eliminate this weak link while improving the recoil characteristics of your gun.
Sometimes the smallest changes make the biggest difference, especially for the person holding the pistol.
A stainless guide rod will NEVER break, melt, chip, crack, warp, flex or anything else that guide rods aren’t supposed to do.
A top notch stainless guide rod from B~T WILL cycle more smoothly, add weight under the muzzle, and give you peace of mind that your pistol will function reliably without breakage.
