  1. Must have for your 1911

    Posted by Mark A. on Sep 23rd 2020

    It has been mentioned by other reviewers, but it bears repeating again. This is just a must have for your 1911. Lock the slide back, depress the guide rod, release slide and your in business. No tools to keep track of or lose is icing on the cake. Dawson Precision shipped super quick... very pleased all around.

  2. Outstanding product

    Posted by Nate on Mar 14th 2020

    This is an absolute “must-have” upgrade. The factory guiderod for the TRP Operator requires the use of a paper clip or something similar for disassembly, the only significant shortcoming with an otherwise excellent 1911. This product completely alleviates that issue. My only lament is that this product is not available for a much wider selection of 1911s. Something like this is sorely needed for the Springfield EMP 3” model, which has a factory guiderod that makes disassembly an absolute nightmare. Buy this — I guarantee you won’t regret it.

  3. **UPDATE** Absolute Must-Have!

    Shortly after I posted the review below, I received a (humbling) phone call from Dawson Precision. Turns out I was over-thinking/under-thinking the process.
    With a full-length rail/dust cover, remove the slide first and then you can simply push the guide rod up and lock it to remove it. Took all of 5 seconds the first time around.

    I only wish I could edit my review below. I should have called them for advice before being so quick to leave an unfavorable review.

  4. Not what I expected

    Posted by Armand on Jan 11th 2019

    Everyone ranted and raved about this product being tool-less and a must have for the TRP. I honestly think it's easier to use the factory guiderod with a paperclip.

    The problem is the lever that you have to depress is still hidden underneath the fullrail. So now I have to find something that is both strong enough to push it in, yet soft enough to not nick my rail.

    Extremely disappointed, considering how much I paid for this product. Would be better if the lever was flipped so it faced the barrel. At least then I could shove something in there without worrying about marring the underside of my barrel.

  5. Dawson Precision Tool-less Guiderod for 1911

    Top quality item; fit my SA 1911 TRP perfectly. What a timesaver when cleaning!

  6. Safest, convenient guide rod

    No more flying springs and shooting your eye out! It’s a captured 1911 guiderod.

  7. Worth it!!!

    Posted by Jerry on Oct 4th 2018

    Saw this on a forum I happened upon and someone had a video link. I watched the video and bought this tool-less guide-rod right after. Worth every penny!!!

  8. Just amazing!!!

    Posted by Joshua on Aug 31st 2018

    I love this Guiderod for my Springfield TRP Operator! My old one was so hard to work with trying to use a paperclip, long story short the Dawson Precision has a amazing tool less design was so smart! I would recommend this to anyone!

  9. Should be the standard

    Posted by Alex on Aug 29th 2018

    If you have a full rail TRP and you like to maintain it, you need this, plain and simple. It could also just be me but it kinda feels smoother than the stock one. Either way, the disassembly ease alone is worth it.
