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.
