Metal Guide rods (and spring) which one?

Hello folks!

First post on this forum, and boy do I have a great question. This is a topic that has been discussed in part before but this time, I need some practical insight on the different metal guide rods that can be purchased to replace the standard plastic one on the Q45. Basically, which one works as designed (and hopefully as advertised)?

Here are the contenders, I have found so far:

BT Guide Rods - P99/PPQ - BT Guide Rods

Stainless Steel Guide Rods - https://www.amazon.com/Walther-Stain...ds=Walther+PPQ

Zahal Recoil Reduction System
- Recoil Reduction System for Walther PPQ

I've used the stainless steel guide rods, they work with 1911 flat-springs and give lots of options for customizing the weight of the recoil springs.

Look at SprinCo....Sprinco USA -- Recoil Reducers

A great system and you'll find they are very reliable, and give one significant target reacquisition improvement.

If you do a search on the subject you'll find plentlly of threads on the subject:
DPM recoil management vs sprinco recoil management

SprinCo PPQ Recoil System

Sprinco Recoil Reducer

I will say that a stainless RSA isn't really necessary with your Q but many do see improved preformance when using one.

Welcome to the Forums BTW.

@menzzer37 & @olsoul - I did not see a specific part for the Q45. Or do the use the same as the 40 S&W /.357?

I don't have a Q45, but I've been quite happy with the BT guide rod in my P99c, and the customer service is EXCELLENT.

Are the BT Guide rods two piece like the stainless steel guide rods so 1911 springs will fit ?

LiveShots, I can't speak to 1911 springs specifically, but BT does sell a kit to disassemble/reassemble the rods, so yes, they are 2 piece.
