    What are the claims? and to most of us not really, they are a low wear/impact pc and generally don't wear out but some replace it because they like the look
    nothing re-wires a human more effectively than pain, fear and, especially, trauma.

    the best part of doing what's right is it requires no though, no though at all

    People say that because they weigh a little more that it helps with the recoil. I have never fired one with it in but for $50 bucks I'd try one out.

    My G21SF has a metal guide rod (came in it with a trade) I think it is stainless but I dont know what a tungsten looks like. I have only fired it with this guide rod so i dont know if there is a diffrence or not. Can someone describe Tungsten. This guide rod is of course a good bit heavier then the stock plastic type.

    Went back and checked my notes that I made after the trade, my notes say LW Titanium Guide Rod. I really dont know if it is Stainless or Titanium, it feels heavy to me.

    If you're really bent on recoil reduction, this might interest you.

    Never tried one myself, but there are YT videos on it available online.

    One of those came with the G21SF trade also, I had a couple of malfunctions with it and sold it and put the metal guide rod mentioned above back in it.

    Personaly, I like the standard guide rod. No problems with recoil...as a matter of fact, I like to feel the gun go bang. They claim increased accuracy. Sounds like a bunch of poo to me.

    I agree with both of you. I merely suggested it as a possible alternative. If the OP is shooting a 9mm, how much reduction is needed, since there's very little to begin with. I use the stock RSA and am totally satisfied.

    the stock glock has passed every torture test in over 20 years.. aftermarket stuff hey everyones trying to make a living. when we were kids and the muscle cars were the rage. the old saying was "if it don't go....chrome it " the stock glocks GO.
