Suarez International Precision Guide Rod

We have seen the factory recoil guide rod break in extremely harsh conditions. This usually happens at the tip or the base and potentially locks up the the pistol until it can be fixed. Our guide rod was developed to enhance the reliability and durability of the Glock system under the worst conditions. Our guide rod provides faster shot to shot recovery and smoother slide cycling than is possible with the OEM guide rods, and being extended for 1/4” past the muzzle of the pistol, allows for contact shots in "zero to five" contact situations.

These guide rods are made from 4140 hardened steel with a Melonite finish. The end result is a very tough recoil guide rod with a black finish, and with corrosion resistance equal to the pistol. To further increase ultimate reliability, these guide rods are designed as uncaptured units for better reliability over captured guide rods. Perfect with any quality spring such as ISMI or Wolff.

This construction and finish also offers a lubricity and smoothness of operation not evident in the OEM spring unit, or aftermarket stainless guide rods.
