    I have had ZERO luck with a few Scherer products. I do not spend my money on Scherer JUNK any more!

    What do you expect to gain with it? I've been a Glocker since 1996 and have never, ever damaged a recoil spring assembly. As a matter of fact, my 1996 G19 still has the original unit in it. The purpose of a recoil rod is to align the recoil spring, nothing more.

    They are a trap. That metal pin makes the polymer SHAFT more rigid, which then transfers the shock energy to the polymer END DISC which rides in the locking block. Strengthening ONE part of the polymer recoil rod just throws the load on ANOTHER part of the polymer rod; strengthen the entire rod (i.e. steel or tungsten) or leave the rod stock.

    Your better off buying a stainless steel or tungsten guide rod.
