CARVER Custom Tungsten Guide Rod (with stainless back cap) assembly fits all Gen 3 G17,17L,22,24,31,34,35,37 models. You are purchasing the guide rod with your spring of choice. The CARVER Custom Tungsten guide rod can be used with the original factory recoil spring or an  ISMI "flat wound" recoil spring. To make the guide rod compatible with a Gen 4 model, a stainless guide rod adapter is required.  The factory recoil spring weight is 17 lbs on all G17,17L,22,24,31,34,35,37 models.

Choose your spring weight from the options shown below.  Or use the links to order additional springs for your guiderod.

CARVER Custom Tungsten guide rods provide a decisive advantage for all Glock owners by providing an additional 67% weight difference at the front of the pistol versus a stainless guide rod. This extra weight will help reduce muzzle rise allowing quicker follow up shots. Special features include a rigid Tungsten body that improves lock up by completely removing "guide rod flex". The hex screw removable tip allows the user to choose various spring weights that will calibrate the ammunition to the gun. Used by Law Enforcement and competitive shooters world wide, will not chip or crack like the factory plastic guide rods are prone to. Will not damage or wear your polymer frame and guaranteed to provide a lifetime of reliable service.
