Kefid · Glock 23 - Old Faithful, always fires whatever I feed it! Started with 165gr FMJ, stock spring & guide rod, just 14 rounds to warm up. Installed GlockStore Tungsten guide rod with 20lb spring, (18lb is stock). I don''t see how others ~can''t~ tell the difference. I noticed several things immediately.
No, "tung" is actually the Norwegian word for "heavy". I bet you''re thinking of titanium. The extra heft of tungsten vs. steel (and obviously nylon) is what''s supposed to make it better for guide rods (i.e. recoil springs) in terms of lessening recoil and improving accuracy.

Kefid · I have a Tungsten Guide Rod on my G21. I did it with a lot of other changes as well so I can''t really tell the differance but I have heard that it helps but I have heard that there is a possibility of breaking. I don''t really know but mine works fine. I feel more comfortable than using the plastic guide rod.

Kefid · Yep, there are folks that use the steel guide rods without issue, so we do know they "can" work. But, Glock designed the RSA a particular way, and I don''t have the knowledge, expertise, or need to change it without knowing why the gun was designed that way in the first place. I''m just not going to take a chance. Regards. Dave
Kefid · From what I know, tungsten is more brittle than the plastic used in OEM guide rods and has a tendency to shear. It also has a shorter service life between preventative maintenance replacement. For this reason, Tungsten guide rods are recommended only for competition guns and not for guns intended for social functions.

Kefid · I put a tungsten guide rod in a Glock 19 gen. 2 and I did notice a difference in muzzle flip. I do believe which gun you put one in does matter. I''d have to lookup the springrate on the factory unit. That''s the same gun in the video. I think 18lb spring is recommended for reloads, 20-22 for factory loads. Hom much shooting difference do
Kefid · -Glock 34- USPSA Production, IDPA SSP and Steel Challenge Limited and the IDPA rules were rewritten to allow steel guide rods in Glocks. Tungsten is another story. It''s a more brittle metal.
