•Lightest guide rod available for a 1911 pistol and is a great way to reduce weight for steel shooting designed for light loads. Minor power factor aluminum head dampens recoil like aluma buff machined from one solid piece of aircraft grade aluminum. This guide rod is not intended to last as long as a steel guide rod. It should be inspected and replaced when guide rod head shows excessive wear. Hey it doesn't cost much, give it a try! *Spring Plug/Reverse Plug/Recoil Spring is not included. Fits 1911 type, STI 2011, SV, Kimber, Springfield, Colt, Bull and Bushing Barrels, Compensated and Non-Compensated Pistols. Simply use a bent paper clip in the hole to disassemble; Spring Plug must be removable from back of slide to use this guide rod. Requires Spring Plug 026~1067 or Reverse Plug 026~1061 with through hole, sold separately. If your Pistol has a full length guide rod, your Spring Plug or Reverse Plug will work fine with this guide rod.

  1. Great guide rod

    Posted by Dougals on Apr 17th 2018

    I use these in my 9mn 1911sti take off wieght. They say they aren't for long term use, but one of my guide rods has been in the gun for 3 years without signs of wear. Well over 8k rounds through it.

  2. Very light!

    This guide rod weighs 0.5oz, vs std 1.5oz. Great if you need to make weight for competition. Not sure how many rounds it will last though.

  3. Project Gun

    Building a new 45ACP, trying to cut down a little on weight. Quality is "Dawson Right". This item is straight true. Finish is DP perfect.

  4. Great product!

    I use this for minor and it has held up great. Saves 1oz over a steel gr. Would buy again.
