    Absolutely amazing! I’ve used these guide rods on Sigs just to get a solid option, but what a difference this makes on my shield. Won’t run a gun until I have one of these from now on!!

    After kinking 3 factory 2-piece guide rods in under 1000 rounds with something as light as winchester white box, I decided to upgrade. 2000 rounds later, and I have no regrets. I would make this the first upgrade (even before tritium sights) for any pistol with a 2 piece guiderod
