Re: Full lenght guide rod, pros/cons?
Thanks Clinger for the info. The one I have is the old style one piece. I installed it one time and of course could see no difference in a very limited trial. There are what ? millions of 1911 style pistols out there with the standard short guide rod and I am not aware of problems they might have. I notice that several of the clone manufacturers are equipping with full length rods. I don't think I would mess with the hassle of a two piece unless it showed proven advantages. Wondered to if it became necessary in the comp guns firing thousands of rounds. Part of it maybe that we just can't leave old slab sides along and have to tinker with it. Part of the fun too. Thanks again.
