    Hi. I just picked up my new Glock 19. I use a Blackhawk CQC holster cause I find most IWB holsters uncomfortable for me.

    Right now I'm debating whether to get a stainless steel or tungsten guide rod to replace the factory plastic one. Any opinions? Does anyone have either of these upgrades? How do you like it? Make a difference?

    What's a good price? I found a stainless steel one online for $20, and a tungsten one for $50. Reasonable? Where should I buy glock parts?

    Thanks for the help!

    I run stainless guide rods with great results. That being said, a Glock already shoots better than I do, so stainless and especially tungsten are overkill. But they make me feel cool.

    For upgrade parts, my vote and my money goes to http://lonewolfdist.com/.

    The plastic guide rod that Glock puts in their pistols is fine. No need to "replace" it.

    I don't like the idea of a plastic guide rod.

    The extra weight ought to reduce muzzle flip.

    I'll ask my brother about it, he has a stainless steel guide rod in his Glock 19

    I have one in my XD, and muzzle flip was nearly eliminated.
