I feel that the factory sights are good.
Any thing added to a gun will have to be explained if the gun should have to be used in self defense.
I simply do not like the flimsy plastic guide rod that the G17's (newer finger groove/accessory rail style) came with. The plastic guide rod end that seats into the barrel "half-moon" cut-out, can get severely worn, to the point that it will no longer stay seated properly in position.On 2001-06-25 20:30, Flexmoney wrote:
I am interested in why you would want to change it.
A complete recoil spring assembly (spring + guide rod) from Glock costs about the same as a Wolff recoil spring alone. I'd say that yanking the whole assembly out and replacing it is about as easy as spring replacement gets. :smile:There is no harm in adding a metal guide rod, and it allows you the option of changing recoil springs to fine tune your set-up. Also makes routine recoil spring changes much easier every 2000-3000 rds.
