Anyone else want to vouch for this statement?
You might be right. I've heard a lot of talk about replacing the it with a steel rod. I've also heard a lot of talk about the plastic rod is fine and isn't a problem.
However, nobody is saying the steel rod is problem.
I'm of the camp that a lot of 1911s don't even have a full guide rod and operate w/o problems.
I guess better to error on the side of caution?
