Walther Spring Guide Rod

My guide rod got away from me at the rage on my PK380 (darn spring). Any idea where to order an aftermarket or replacement Spring guide rod. The pistol is pretty useless without it.

Do you have a good reference for ordering repair/aftermarket parts?
Thanks from the Newbie,
Greg

I'd start with WaltherAmerica/S&W customer service:

Smith & Wesson Customer Service/Support:

http://www.smith-wesson.com/webapp/w...&content=11001

Smith & Wesson email addresses:

[email protected]

or

By Telephone:

413-781-8300 (International)

The part in question would be covered by warranty and subject to a free replacement.

Welcome to the forum, by the way; enjoy your time here.

The guide rod looks like it could be made out of a nail from a hardware store IMHO. If you could find one with the right O.D. on the spring part you could cut it to proper length and then turn the head of the nail to the proper size so that it'd work. I don't think it'd need to be hardened or anything, the mild steel in the nail should work at least until you could order a proper one. Just get some specs on what sizes you need, take your calipers to Lowes or Home Depot and have at it. P.S. Sure enough, I just measured the part of the guide rod that the spring sticks over and it's .195". I went through a box of mics nails and screws that I have and I found 3 nails that are the proper .195" O.D. for the spring to slip over. All you'd need to do is chuck the nail in a drill, use a file to turn the nail head to proper size(need to measure that) and then clean up the part that the spring would go over and you'd be in business.

Proof of Concept.

Yep, it can be done. Here's a spring guide rod I just made out of a nail. Used my drill, dremel and files and sand paper.

Top is original guide rod, center is homemade guide rod and bottom is the type of nail I used.

If you use the nail in place of the guide rod and dont trim it, provided your holster covers the tip, it could be used like a bayonette on a jammed gun or an empty magazine. Maybe, there's a market.

It's early and I haven't finished my coffee. As such, the only member of the household I don't find insufferable is the dog.

Complete disassembly PK380 instructions & exploded view

I've made a determined (somewhat exhausted) effort to find the subject material. The links in the "Stickies" don't work, at least on my iPad.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
