I know, when shooters talk about customizing their Glocks, it’s usually the same old thing. They go on and on about triggers, match-grade barrels, and wicked slides. Sure, those typical upgrades can make a difference, but they come with a price tag. Have you ever given a thought about the lesser discussed parts you can change for a much lower cost? I'm talking about the often-over-looked Glock guide rod. Don't laugh, it can really make a difference.

Building A Better Mousetrap

There's no denying that the groundbreaking Glock design is superb. However, the factory, polymer Glock guide rod is an inherent, material flaw in that otherwise great design. The key word here is polymer. The polymer material, by nature, will flex, chip, and break over time. When you install an L2D Combat stainless steel guide rod, you do away with that potential point of failure. But, the real advantage only starts there.

It Will Be Our Little Secret

How about tuning your Glock for its ultimate performance? Physics may not be our specialty. However, it's not hard to understand that when you change the weight of an object, other things change. I'm talking about how much your upgraded slide weighs. Or even, the power of the load and size of the bullet you want to fire. Well, what is the shock absorber that has to account for that change? That's right, your Glock guide rod. More specifically the spring that rides on it. When you run an L2D Combat Glock stainless steel guide rod, you get the option of using their custom-matched springs. Turn to L2D Combat for these lesser known parts and tune your Glock to work with you.
