1911 Spring Guide. GI format spring guide with beveled head to prevent damage to lower lugs of barrel. Head geometry and dimensions are optimized for correct slide travel, even with common buffers installed. Heavily tumbled to remove sharp edges. Stainless steel, natural finish. Fits all Government Model sized 1911s (5" barrel) and clones in all calibers. Does NOT fit Commander or smaller size 1911s.
ReviewsFilip K.Despite several excellent reviews here, I wanted to add my own thoughts on the 10-8 GI guide rod and reverse plug combo for my TRP Operator. My gun was one of those which came with the full length guide rod that isn't beveled on the back end thus it was hitting the barrel 'legs' potentially causing irreversible damage over hundreds of rounds fired. This was one of the few great options to remedy that issue without waiting to send my regular guide rod to SA for servicing and having to wait for them to return it. They are indisputably excellent quality products, the conversion for my TRP went as smoothly as it could possibly go, I cannot wait to start putting countless rounds down range and being able to take-down the firearm in 'no-time' to clean it up before duty calls :). Thanks Hilton for making such top-notch products!Christopher Rickman

recoil spring guideThe spring guide appeared to be manufactured well, however I have not fired my pistol since installing it. I was very pleased with the quick service once I ordered the item.Albert
Well-made, well-finished - Drop-in and shootThis addition with the 10-8 slide stop and a 13# single spring really worked out nicely on the Colt 1911 in firstname.lastname@example.org
proper dimensionsLooking 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 productKrypt Racer
Whats not to Like..??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
Great productPerfect fit, excellent finish, works flawlessly. A great simple upgrade.Gordon
Great GI Guide RodThis is a well made and well engineered GI guide rod. The base is beveled too. No fitting needed for my Springfield TRP.
