  1. Just exceptional

    Posted by Trent Thompson on Aug 1st 2020

    What a great product. Makes take down and cleaning so much easier (I even want to clean again even though I've just finished cleaning after install). Thanks for a such a solid product.

  2. So much easier

    I had a guide rod that needed a paper clip or small Allen key to take out. I have since install this rod and is makes break down much easier.

  3. Works great

    Works great and saves my fingers. Lol

  4. Great!

    I have an STI Edge which came with a “tool” to attach to the guide rod during the take down process. The Dawson tool-less makes the take down process about 10 times easier and quicker! More than worth the money!

  5. What a Relief

  6. Saves time & thumbs

    I have a three slide/barrel STI double stack set and this guide rod saves a ton of time and fingers at the range.

  8. Game changer!!

    Posted by Todd on Feb 5th 2018

    I shoot an STI Steelmaster open pistol and had problems with my gun feeding, I thought because it was New it just needed a little more break in time. I tried all types of ammo and only found two brands that would work 50% of the time. I shoot minor and the only 9mm that it would cycle was the Federal Syntech. I talked to a few pros and to one of Dawson Precision’s employees and this is where it led me. The “Recoil Master” is a joke if anyone says it’s better it’s because they haven’t tried this. I put the new toolless guiderod in with an 8lb wolf spring and shot about 600rds without an failures , I would get at least one jam in 50rds with the old setup.

  9. Nice upgrade
