  1. M17 Recoil Spring Squeak

    P250, P320, & P320 X-5 Pistols
    Has anyone else had an issue with an M17 where the recoil spring/guide rod generates a very loud squeak when the pistol cycles? It sounds like an old screen door closing. I've tried applying a light coat of lubricant and this did not seem to solve the problem. Right now the pistol only has...
  2. Problems with New P229 Legion

    Legion Series
    I just picked up a brand new P229 Legion today and I was really excited about it but I have already encountered 2 potential problems. Firstly I noticed that the guide rod didn't seem to be long enough. I disassembled the pistol and the rod itself doesn't appear to be stuck on the spring or...
  3. guide rod stuck in slide: P320 compact 45ACP

    P250, P320, & P320 X-5 Pistols
    Hi folks: Brought the kids to the range today with the P320 compact through 2 mags and son had 2 light strikes...then noticed it wasn't going into full battery. He showed it to me and this is what we found. We tried to "unscrew" the guide rod and spring to remove the rod from...
  4. GGI Custom FAT SB Guide rod P220/P226

    SIG Sauer Pistols
    Greetings, Just installed the parts I ordered of off GGI. Just wanted to ask if the Fat Custom super black p226 guide rod is really supposed to be shorter than the standard stock hollow one? Seems to cycle fine via slingshotting, it's about 1 cm shorter, but is certainly fatter and heavier...
  5. P226 Gray Guns Custom Fat Guide Rod

    SIG Sauer Pistols
    Greetings, Was wondering if any of you have had some experience with Gray Guns' Custom Fat Guide Rod. How's the decreased in perceived recoil? Is it a very worth it upgrade compared to the original hollow aluminum rod? Also, there's a super black one and a stainless one. Granted, both are...
  6. Sig P320 Guide Rod

    P250, P320, & P320 X-5 Pistols
    The guide rod on my Sig P320 protrudes quite a bit and does not look normal. It is certainly far from a flush fit. The gun functions fine but this does not seem like the typical fine workmanship for a Sig. Do others have the same issue? I just received it back from Sig following the upgrade...
  7. metal guide rod for p320c?

    P250, P320, & P320 X-5 Pistols
    Does anyone know if any company makes metal guide rods for the p320 carry/compact models?
  8. P250 Sights

    P250, P320, & P320 X-5 Pistols
    I have a P250 in 9mm and 45acp. I had the 40 S&W exchange kit and the it shot low. Sent it to Sig and the pu the correct ones on and it's very accurate. Well my 9mm also shoots low. I have only used WWB and my reloads @ 15 yds. I get very nice groups but about 4-5" low. My question is: could...
  9. Solid Steel Polished P220 Guide Rods

    Good Deals
    I just bought one of these for my old West German P220. I received it the other day and was a little worried it may not fit correctly, but it fit snug as a bug. ^_^ On top of that, the entire thing was polished to a mirror finish (and done right!). $7.99 + FREE S&H. :eek: I haven't shot it...
  10. p290 rs MOD advice

    SIG Sauer Pistols
    Need advice: I'm interested in modifying my P290rs in the following two areas: the trigger, and guide rod. Has anyone else done this already, or done enough research to give advice? My purpose in changing the trigger is to shorten the pull, or at least make it easier. (I'm looking at the RTK...
  11. P226 Guide Rod

    SIG Sauer Pistols
    Just curious if the guide rod is worth switching out for a stainless steel one. I know Sig is high quality but I don't know about the guide rods. Any input on this would be appreciated.
  12. Stainless Steel (solid) guide rod in P226

    SIG Sauer Pistols
    I see there are numerous posts on plastic vs steel. And, there is probably many that are solid vs hollow. I recently purchased a solid steel replacement on my P226 Mk25. Has anyone who has done this noticed a performance change? Supposedly the increased mass will permit 'back on target' more...
  13. p220 Fat guide rod?

    Gun Gear
    Is the only purpose of the grayguns fat guide rod to help with single strand recoil springs? How much bigger is it than a standard stainless guide rod? Does anyone have the dimensions on one of them? I can't find the specs to compare the size differences anywhere.
  14. guide rod or stainless?

    SIG Sauer Pistols
    Bought a rynotek stainless guide rod for my 226 before I bought my gun because I had read they came with plastic guide rods from the factory. Contrary to that its a metal guide rod but its hollow. I replaced it anyway just for the fact that I prefer the added weight in the front but was curious...
