Anyone tried a stainless steel guide rod?

My name is John and new to the forums. I was just wondering if anyone has done yet to see if it helps with muzzle-flip. I know some say it helps on the PPQ, but not sure if this is entirely true.

I got one and installed it. I could not take down the pistol with this installed. The slide release would not disengage at all. I returned my stainless guide rod.

^^^^^But, JP....if you could not take down the pistol with it installed, and the slide release would not disengage at all, how in the cornbread 8ell did you return it?

TT....muzzle flip? What muzzle flip. If you're shootin' a 9, its like shooting a pea shooter. Now, if your shootin' a 40, then yeah, it'll kick a little bit.

Many people on this forum have tried and/or are running steel guide rods. Some swear by em', other's, well, they may not feel the difference.

This is a question that only YOU can answer. Pick one up and give it a try....if you don't like it, I'm sure you can sell it.

You can't release the slide with the takedown lever turned down. If you turn it back to locked, you can release the slide. You then have to take it down without using the slide lock.

I say with a lifetime warranty if the guide rod messes up I am sure Walther will stand behind it & fix it. I am sure you could contact them & they would just send out a new one if needed. I just hope it performs like the PPQ did.

JP - I had the exact same experience. I contacted the manufacturer and was sent a second one, and it did the same thing. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

BT Guide Rods makes the best available. They're in all my pistols.

You got a low end recoil assembly. Use a better product. A better product would use factory oem springs. BT Guide Rods makes the best aftermarket guide rod assemblies.
