aftermarket guide rod / spring upgrade
« on: October 19, 2017, 12:33:36 PM »
Question on G20 gen 4 aftermarket guide rod upgrades, as my current brass is flying practically to China. One I have looked at is from the Glockstore, its a 20 lb HEAVY TUNGSTEN GUIDE ROD, and the GEN4 RECOIL ASSEMBLY ADAPTER RING. Would the 20lb be a good all around weight for anemic, as well as full House hand loads?
Thanks in advance

6 feet to 10 feet for most 10mm loadings...  My recoil setup in non captive and single spring from Wolff...

Cool, do you notice much gain in comparison to the factory setup?
