Is the guide rod in the G35 the same length as the guide rod in the G17? I have an aftermarket non-captured guide rod that I'd like to swap from my G35 to my G17 if possible (safe). I realize the slides/barrels are of different lengths.
Yes... the same guide rod & spring are used for the G-17 & G34. The hole in the top of the G-34 slide is to make it about the same weight as the G-17 slide... only the barrel weighs more on a G-34 - & that does not affect the recoil.
