    Fellow BOGs,

    Which do you prefer in a 1911 carry gun, traditional or full-length guide rod?

    What are the advantages and disadvantages of both systems?

    with a traditional guiderod you could cock and chamber with one hand by pushing the lower part of the slide against a table or something. accuracy wise and recoil there's no difference. read about this topic in handgunner a few years back.

    as long as it does not jam and can hit a plate at 25 meters it does not matter for me
