This tungsten guide rod should be checked by a gunsmith familiar with the 1911 design. It may require minor fitting to contact the frame evenly. Failure to do so may lead to premature wear and/or breakage which will not be covered under warranty.The head of the guide rod has smooth beveled edges to make for a seamless look.It is necessary to remove the front half of the guide rod to disassemble the gun.
Check for fit in 3 areas:(1) Barrel feet should not contact head(2) Where guide rod rests against frame(3) Back surface of slide/dustcover is flat and even.This is designed for long slide 1911 pistols with 6" barrels.Machined from solid barstock here in the USA.This is a 2-pc guide rod. Disassembly of a long slide gun would not be possible with a 1-pc.Our STI Guide rods are made specifically for STI models as the button on the end of the guide rod is smaller in diameter than a standard guide rod.
