Hey Fred. I had an interesting conversation with John at Glockmeister today. I told him about receiving a SS natural finish recoil rod, when I really wanted a black anodized one. He said give me your info and I will ship you out one tomorrow. He never said he wanted the old one back or anything?????? So I might get the one I wanted in the first place, or he might send me a Glock factory one like they did you. Hopefully not!
