    2015-12-4 · I like a solid stainless guide rod, because they look better. Otherwise, there are so many variables that are mostly controlled by the user that which guide rod is in the gun is a negligible point. Saying that, there is no advantage of tungsten over stainless, or even plain steel- the negligible difference is in the weight, not the material.

  • Tungsten guide rod or keep it stock? | Glock Forum -

    2020-7-2 · Strength of the rod is a non-issue, plastic will not break. The weight of the tungsten rod will be pretty negligible, but it shouldn’t hurt function. There have been a few cases of brittle tungsten rods breaking over the years. If it’s for defense, use the stock RSA. If it’s a game gun and you want to play with spring weights get a stainless rod.

    2002-12-28 · Not to be disagreeable, but the original Glock 17 model came with a steel guide rod. At some point they switched to the plastic guide rods. I don't know when that was because I never cared enough to research it, but it is well documented that the original Glocks came with steel rods. But, then again, I DID read that on the internet.
