I have been considering replacing the guide rod on my G23 with a stainless one. Below are the three I have been considering. Does any one have experience with these? Thanks.

If you are looking for just the stainless guide rod, they are $12 (non-captive spring) and $14 (captive spring): http://www.topglock.com/category/1666-glock_springs_rods.aspx

I am not sure if they really help with the accuracy. They are sold more under the marketing of "durable guide rod" - how many times have you heard Glock guide rod failing?

When I first bought my G22 to shoot production, it came with loose recoil spring (not captive spring). I replaced the factory recoil spring with an aftermarket dual coil spring set with a full length guide rod (Springco) which did improve the felt recoil ($79 http://www.sprinco.com/recoil.html).

I bought a new Gen3 G22 to keep as a spare and it came with a stiffer captured spring set. What I found is that the new captured spring set offered as good of recoil management as the dual coil spring set. Accuracy was essentially the same and I currently run my G22 with the factory captured spring.

If you are considering the dual spring set for $65 to reduce the felt recoil, I would find some reviews on the product before I bought it. The Springco reducer (dual spring) costs more at $79, but it does have good match shooting performance background.

I have a 19 and a 26 and I've experimented a lot with the first one.Keep it stock.

I use this rod in my Glock 23:

USE THE STOCK GLOCK BRAND RECOIL SPRING!!! I found the aftermarket springs would bind up, fit poorly, or just plain perform silly.


Also the Glockworx/Zevtech 3.0 connector and Comp spring kit can really wake up your Glock 23. I like the stock striker spring the best.
