    Sorry for the dumb question but without a barrel bushing what do i need to make this run in my TRP?

    I have been looking to be rid of the need to use a tool to field strip and was about to pick up a tool-less guide rod from Dawson when I saw this post.

    Is it just a GI rod, spring and the reverse plug?

    Thanks in advance

    Yes...there is no bushing. You use this and retain your bull barrel.

    The Dawson guide rod works very well too.

    Thanks for the reply. I had heard good things about the Dawson guide rod as well but also read a couple places where it had failed.

    That was what still had me interested in a GI set up.

    Yeah I saw those too. I can assure you that the Dawson product is very high quality. I imagine that reassembly will be easier with Dawson than with the GI setup since there is no spring pressure on the slide while aligning the barrel link with the slide stop (idiot scratch). I'll find out as soon as this reverse plug gets here and I have time to play with it.

    curious how it worked out. I still have to either pick up a dawson or swap over to a 10-8 set up.

    thanks

    Both work well. The GI rod and reverse plug (around the collar) was slightly oversized and required fitting. I'm told it is not always the case so YMMV.

    I had the Dawson Tooless Guiderod and loved it. Had it on the Ed Brown I used to have.

    So what all parts do you need to convert the TRP to the no tools set up?

    The 10-8 Plug + the Wilson Combat Flat Recoil Spring kit (Brownells link to the flat wire kit) is all you need. It's an amazing and perfect combo. No need for that Dawson (and sometimes unreliable) guide rod at all!

    This plug and the flat recoil spring kit makes the slide move soooo smooth!

    After a LONG wait the 10-8 Reverse Plug was back in stock. I am expecting delivery tomorrow (including a 10-8 guide rod). I am planing on using the original spring so will put together and get to range to see how it goes.

    Looking forward to ditching the need for a paperclip...

    Long delay but in short this is exactly what the TRP needed IMO. Made a good thing even better.
