  • Tungsten Guide Rod | Glock Forum - GlockTalk

    2014-6-23 · Adding mass to the guide rod helps reduce flip; that is a fact. Whether a particular shooter can take advantage of the added mass is another matter. A metal rod is not going to damage your frame. A tungsten rod will probably put you over the maximum weight for a USPSA Production Glock. Steel probably won’t. A steel rod costs 20 bucks.

Mike, I run full length tungsten guide rods in my Wilson Classic guns for target use but use a standard full length guide rod in my Protector for self defense. The tungsten rods add some stabilizing weight to the front end but may slow your gun movement down for action shooting as posted by bdavis.

I believe that the guide rod lengths are the same in the mid to compacts maybe not the sub com-pact models.

    2016-1-3 · Tungsten resist heat very well (conventional light bulbs use a tungsten compound for their filaments) but there is very little heat exerted on the guide rod to begin with. Stainless steel guide rods are half the price of a tungsten rod and I will almost guarantee the springs in either of the rod types are made of stainless steel.

    2019-4-27 · Tungsten is almost 2.5 times heavier than stainless steel, so provides a little more weight near the muzzle.

Bore axis, weight and compensation are the biggest factors in my opinion on muzzle flip. I should have thought about my 17c being compensated in my evaluation of the SS guide rod.
