When it comes to handguns, you want to invest in the best model to improve your shot accuracy. For many gun owners, the Glock handgun – like the Glock 17 Gen 4 with a stainless steel guide rod or the Glock 19 with guide rod and spring from us – is the answer. Glock handguns are held to a higher standard which means they are produced with significant expectations. 

Here are a few ways Glock handguns can improve shot accuracy:

  • Glocks are reliable: Glocks provide a great hand-fit feel for anyone who uses it. This type of hand-fit design helps to increase reliability. The better a handgun fits in your hand, the more comfortable it feels, which helps to increase your shot accuracy over time.
  • Glocks are durable: Glocks feature a polymer frame that absorbs the impact that would otherwise dent or crack other frame materials such as aluminum. Increased durability means that the handgun can withstand anything. This type of sustainability increases the longevity of a handgun. The longer you own a handgun, the more comfortable you get with it and the more you are able to practice with it. Over time, this will help make your shooting more precise.
  • Glocks are compatible with Stainless Steel Rod: Most Glocks feature a plastic guide rod but have the ability to home a stainless steel rod. When you have a stainless steel Glock guide rod, you add extra weight to the handgun. Glocks tend to lightweight, but when you add in the stainless steel rods, you give it extra weight which can absorb recoil, improve muzzle flip, and increase the accuracy of each shot fired.

The Glock is one of the most popular brands of handguns.  Perhaps surprisingly, it dates only to the early 1980s, when the Austrian Army announced plans to develop a new handgun to replace World War II-era models.  Glock company founder Gaston Glock was an engineer with no experience in designing handguns, but his knowledge of the types of materials that would go into the gun was invaluable.

Glock put together a team of leading handgun experts from throughout Europe.  After much work, the Glock 17 was submitted for trials.  After exhaustive testing and evaluation, the gun was accepted for use by the Austrian Army.  Over the next three decades, the Glock grew in popularity and is now used by armed forces and law enforcement agencies in some 65 countries, including the United States.

There have been several generations of Glocks since the introduction of the Glock 17 – and each of them can benefit by the addition of Stainless Steel Guide Rods.  When used to replace the manufacturer’s guide rods, the stainless steel versions can lead to more comfortable use, increased shooting accuracy, and reduced muzzle flip.

Stainless Steel Guide Rods carries a wide range of stainless steel guide rods for the Glock enthusiast.  These include the Glock 17 gen 4 stainless steel guide rod, the Glock 17 gen 5 guide rod, the Glock 19 gen 3 guide rod and the Glock 19 guide rod and spring.

Our stainless steel rods are CNC machined out of the highest quality 304 stainless steel material.  Our full range of stainless steel guide rods also includes rods for many other gun manufacturers, including AMT, Arex, Beretta, Colt, CZ, HK, Hi-Point, Kahr, KelTec, Ruger, Sig, Smith & Wesson SD9, Smith & Wesson SD40VE, Springfield Armory, Taurus and Walther.
