Guide rod for 1911s

Post by hengehold on 12/12/2017, 7:58 pm

First topic message reminder :

In your opinion, is there a real benefit to installing a recoil spring guide rod on a 1911? What are the benefits you experienced? Reliability, accuracy, something else?

Thanks,

@james-  Your dimensions are spot on.  I checked the actual angle of the hole and it is 60º as you specified. 

Have you seen the CAD 1911 drawing document -- M1911-A1_REDUX.pdf ?  That file has been my go to for pulling dimensions.  You can find it easily via Google search.

Nice job on the CAD drawing.  You inspired me a bit this morning to do some drawing myself, but I do more 3Dmodeling than blueprint style. This is the EGW FLGR. 3D just gives you such a good visual, but 2D is most readable for dimensioning, so why not have both? Laughing

What kind of recoil spring guides do bullseye gunsmiths put in their builds?  Do they mostly use a Short GI recoil spring guide rod?  I have a Dan Wesson with a very tight bushing and a flgr and I need to turn the bushing with a wrench in full lock up to get it out.  Should I put a GI guide rod in?
Thanks,
Jeff
