Stainless Steel recoil spring rods

I got my Glock Store flyer today (I ordered from them one before, worst online buying experience).

They advertise heavier stainless steel recoil rods with standard weight springs for all Glocks. Their claim due to the more than double weight of the Glock plastic rods, it greatly reduces recoil and quicker follow up. I have no issue with Glock recoil, but if this is a noticeable difference, might be worth checking out.

Any feedback?

Waste of money IMO. Same as full length guide rods in 1911s.

I installed a Wolff stainless steel rod and 20# Wolff spring in my G-32 and it considerably moderated the muzzle flip.

I conducted a few "blind" tests with fellow shooters and they unanimously agreed that the Wolff system produced better shooting characteristics in the pistol.

I have had a couple of OEM guide rods break....I do all stainless now, Lone Wolf....good buy for the money...and yes, I use stock spring....and I don't do hot rod loads in my G19 or my G20. Plastic breaks, steel usually doesn't.

I use the NDZ stainless guiderod with 20 lb. spring in my gen. 4 G21, and the gun seems to be very happy this way.

I have the stainless steel guide rod in my G26. I did it for the looks not for function. I would probably just save the money

In my G17L I installed the platinum RSA from GlockSnox - it is guaranteed to reduce recoil by 60%.

Then, I replaced all springs with the Palladium Glock spring kit by Sprong Werks. It reduces recoil another 55%.

This gun is amazing! When I fire it, the pistol jumps foward and down. I actually dropped it a couple times.

Now that it is all dinged up the resale value has gone down. I'm considering a lawsuit to recover what i paid for my gun.

I have installed SS guide rods in all my Glocks, except for my G23 Gen4, & it has been 100% flawless! I have two G20 & I think it help with some felt recoil. Also, my G27 Gen4 doesn't feel "snappy" at all! I'm not a fan of plastic guide rods.

I put in ss rod and 12# spring for comp 34 and i like it. Not sure if its in my head but perceived recoil seems even milder. Not sure. But i have wasted $30 on other **** with no perceived benefit so i like it. Carry glocks keep oem parts.
