So is it usually a good idea to replace the guide rod in a Sig P series to a stainless steel? have any of yall done it before and does it help with muzzle flip and recoil?
It helps with 357SIG. I'm sure it will with 40.1clearshot said:I been meaning to order one for my P228R....my P239 is older one with metal rod from factory.
I believe SS guide rods are solid, unlike the factory metal ones which are hollow. Not sure how much it will help with recoil for .40S&W though....
I would leave it plain with a light coat of oil. Stainless is more slippery without a finish. I have the plain, non-checkered end. It looks really nice on a black gun. If you are worried about reflectivity, it's a non-issue. The end of the rod with the slide closed is the same size as the "O" on your keyboard.1clearshot said:Thanks for the link Mrs_E. I wonder what would be a good finish to put on SS guide rod :?:
Thank you. I'll try that first....I might add some nickel finished controls later.Mrs_Esterhouse said:I would leave it plain with a light coat of oil. Stainless is more slippery without a finish. I have the plain, non-checkered end. It looks really nice on a black gun.
