Guide Rods, Plugs, & Buffers

Guide rods smooth out the cycling of the pistol, extend the life of the recoil spring, and add weight to the front of the gun, thus reducing muzzle flip and recoil. All Ed Brown Guide rods are machined from high quality 416 heat-treated stainless steel. Wrench and plug are included with all two-piece guide rods. All Ed Brown plugs are machined from either blue or stainless, top-quality stress-proof steel.

 

Two-Piece Guide Rod Assembly
Two-piece guide rods are preferred for standard 5" guns because they will disassemble much easier. Will drop-in to all 1911 types with correct slide length. Commander length will fit guns with 4 1/4" barrels. Allen wrench and plug included.
