  • Full Length Guide Rod and the 1911 - Range

    Full Length Guide Rod and the 1911. A question came up about full length guide rods’ function is preventing spring “kink” or flexion.

    2010-2-1 · In a Law Enforcement or self defense context, the full length guide rod prevents one handed operation of the 1911.

    2011-9-24 · Full-length guide rods come in two flavors: one- and two-piece. Two-piece guide rods offer some flexibility in takedown, and arguably bridge the gap between the GI setup and the standard one-piece full-length guide rod.

    2012-12-18 · – The guide rod adds extra weight to the muzzle, making the slide – and with it, the entire handgun – heavier, allowing the shooter to control the muzzle flip much better. The recoil energy that moves the slide can be changed by modifying the mass of the gun, possibly making the shooting more accurate, by allowing the shooter to get back on the target faster.
