  1. proper dimensions 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Feb 2017

    Looking at all other GI style doing guides out there, this is the only one that reaches up onto the face of the frame rails therefore distrinlbuting the load evenly. Frame cracking at dust cover is likely a result of the ears of guide rod sitting too low on other brands. Great product

  2. Whats not to Like..?? 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Aug 2016

    Drop in components that require absolutely no fitting are far and few between. This is one of them..!! No de burr, chamfer or handiwork needed to install what so ever. Material, machine work and finish are flawless.Bevel on frameside should be standard spec on any 1911 spring guide. Used this with a Sarco supplied Black Ops Hi-Cap frame and Heavy Armor barrel, 20lb vari spring /USGI plug/Colt 5" slide.
    A part that works as delivered...

    Thanks 10-8

    This is a well made and well engineered GI guide rod. The base is beveled too. No fitting needed for my Springfield TRP.

    I really appreciate the quality of 10-8 performance 1911 parts, and the 10-8 performance instruction information is fantastic. Save yourself some time and money and do your 1911 upgrades right the first time.

  6. Perfect drop in for Kimber Custom II 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th May 2014

    This was a perfect replacement for the full length recoil rod that comes standard on the Kimber Custom II. I also purchased the 10-8 Recoil Spring Plug and just used the standard recoil spring

  7. Its good but I did have to file it 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Dec 2013

    This is a nicely made part but I did have to file the sides down a fair amount so it would stop rubbing on the slide of my Sig 1911. Other than the little bit of filing I had to do it is a great part.

  8. Great solid beveled 1911 Spring Guide. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2013

    No fitting required for a Series 70 Colt, Caspian custom .45, Springfield GI 191. Very smooth machining. A nice beveled spring guide.

  9. Quality equipment. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jul 2013

    Well made item, dropped in with no fitting, works great in my TRP.

  10. Great Product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2013

    Purchased to replace the factory unit in a Springfield Professional. While the factory unit is in fact beveled, the bevel on the 10-8 unit is very steep, and extremely smooth, so if the unit dislodged and struck the lower lugs, it would definitely deflect upwards. At 22gm, the 10-8 spring guide is double the weight of the factory unit, which some may or may not find beneficial. In my case, this unit seated on the barrel correctly, and did not require fitting.
