The other day at a local gun shop I saw an insert for the Glock factory recoil rod (full and compact, not the sub-compact). This item is a steel rod, about 3/32" in diameter, 2.5 " long and is inserted in the open end of the guide rod. One end is flared and has a slot for a screw driver so it can installed into the plastic guide rod. The claim is it is suppose to add weight and prevent flexing of the rod. I am not sure but I think it is made by Scherer.

Has anyone seen or heard of this item?

I haven't heard of the device you describe, but if you're worried about the recoil spring guide rod, why not replace it with a quality after-market steel or tungsten product? You'll want to do that if you ever plan to experiment with different recoil spring rates anyway and according to some pundits a heavier guide rod helps reduce muzzle flip. I carry a G21 equipped with a tungsten rod and 22 Lb. spring from Glockmeister. //www.glockmeister.com Quality products are available from others also.

Doc,

I have replaced my guide rod on my 22 and my 23 with the Wolff brand. These are excellent quality. I have a Wolff 20 LB on my 23 and this has really made it shoot better. I have not played around with changing spring weights on the 22 yet.

After the rod in my G36 disintegrated at rd. # 609 , I replaced it with the Harrts SS guide rod.
The Harrts adds more weight than some of the others and is as strong (if you believe the claims or not, it is still plenty strong and does add weight at the muzzle end).
