A .22 caliber pistol, like the Smith & Wesson SW22, is a good weapon for a beginner. But unfortunately, sometimes beginners get a head of themselves and go right for a more powerful gun like a 9mm Glock 17 gen 5 (we have guide rods for this and many other Glocks).

So, let’s say a beginner comes to you and wants to work with his or her 9mm or .40 caliber pistol. Well, you can still step down for starters to a .22. But your student will probably want to shoot his or her 9mm or .40 caliber blaster. 

In a lightweight polymer subcompact or pocket semi-automatic pistol such as a Smith & Wesson Shield in 9mm or .40 caliber, a Smith & Wesson SD9, a Sig Sauer P365 9mm, or a Sig Sauer P938, this spells substantial R-E-C-O-I-L.

Guide rods are an essential element of most semi-automatic pistols. However, the guide rods that come with the handguns just mentioned in the factory box are made of plastic. This can present several disadvantages such as improper oiling, springs that are too tight, and overuse. Problems that can arise as a result are excess wear and tear on the pistol which can cause malfunctions. Additionally, springs that are too tight can increase recoil.

That’s why we make stainless steel guide rods for the above pistols as well as for a multitude of other pistols including the Sig Sauer SP2022, Smith & Wesson® Shield .45 caliber, Walther PPQ-M2 St, Smith & Wesson® SD40VE, Beretta 92FS Compact and M9A1, HK VP9, CZ 75 compact, CZ p07, CZ p10, and the CZ pcr.

The heft of a stainless-steel guide rod dampens a pistols recoil – and that’s a good thing for the beginning shooter. So, if you are working with a new handgun owner or a beginning shooter, consider giving the gift of an American-made stainless steel guide rod to replace the plastic one that comes with the gun.

The CZ 75 Compact is among the most popular firearms produced by the legendary brand that gets its name from its Czech roots. CZ stands for Česká zbrojovka, which translates to ‘Czech armory.’ The brand traces its roots back to 1936. When production began in 1937, the focus was on aircraft machine guns, military pistols and small-bore rifles. 

In addition to the CZ 75 Compact, we offer stainless steel guide rods for many other popular handguns from CZ, including: 

  • CZ P07
  • CZ P01
  • CZ P10 C
  • CZ PCR
  • CZ P09
  • CZ 75B
  • CZ 75 P07
  • CZ 40P
  • CZ 75 Shadow
  • CZ 75 Kadet

The Benefits of Owning a CZ Handgun

The CZ 75 is the flagship model of the CZ handgun line. Since it was first introduced in 1975, more than 1 million CZ 75s have been made. CZ has developed an entire family of pistols around the basic CZ 75 design, including the CZ 75 Compact.  

Like all CZ handguns, the CZ 75 has a number of outstanding features, including: 

  • Durability

CZ handguns are incredibly durable. CZ’s feature a very durable frame which is a considerable benefit for gun owners who travel often and use their handgun frequently. The durable frame helps to reduce recoil, which makes for more comfortable use as well.

  • Reliability

Having a reliable handgun is vital. One of the most popular handgun brands for military and police, CZ handguns are among some of the most reliable handguns on the market. Their durable frame and comfortable feel make them the perfect gun for everyday use.

  • Stainless Steel Rod Compatibility

Every CZ model is compatible with stainless steel rods. Guide rods are an overlooked part of a handgun, but they are one of the most important features. By adding a stainless steel rod to your CZ model, you increase the weight of the handgun, which can reduce muzzle flip and improve your shot accuracy over a period of time.

We are proud to offer stainless steel guide rods for the most popular CZ models, including the CZ 75 Compact. We also have stainless steel rods for many other popular handguns, including Gen 3 Guide Rod, Glock 17 Gen 4 Stainless Steel Guide Rod, Glock 17 Gen 5 Guide Rod, Glock 19 Gen 3 Guide Rod, Glock 19 Guide Rod and Spring, Shield 2.0, M&P Guide Rod, Beretta 92FS Compact and more.
