I just picked up a SP2022 9mm (great gun btw) and was looking for some knowledgeable input. Should I replace the polymer guide rod with a stainless steel one or leave it be? I've personally never heard of a guide rod failure and I understand some manufacturers engineer their products with consideration to the flex of the polymer. I also understand that in some cases the additional weight and rigidity of the stainless rods may be beneficial. I'm more concerned with longevity and durability. Thanks for your input.
I've never had a plastic guide rod fail on me either.
Never heard of one failing.
But they look cool, :mrgreen:
so I've put them in several of my guns. :smt082
