GUIDE ROD KIT FOR 3" 1911S STAINLESS 9MM, .38, .40 (COLT DEFENDER, NEW AGENT, LDA, ETC)I purchased this item for my Colt Defender. I was extremely pleased on how easy it made the assembly/disassembly of the weapon. What I didn't like was the reverse plug. When I initially installed it. I had to use a lot of pressure to get it in the slide. once in it functioned fine. After a day at the range, I field stripped the gun for cleaning. it was slightly difficult to remove it. When I started re-assembling the gun after cleaning, I couldn't get the plug in at all even after several attempts. I ended up using the factory plug.
