I have a CZ P-01 and I'm curious if a steel guide rod (like this one)would make any noticeable difference in how she handles...quicker follow up shots, less felt recoil, etc. Lots of folks seem to swap out for metal over plastic, but is it just voodoo or is there something to it? I don't believe durability of the plastic rod is an issue so the only reason I'd swap it out would be for improved handling.
I have few complaints with this weapon. Perhaps some VZ grips and a new set of sights are in order, but other than that I love my CZ...actually, my favorite handgun of any I've handled by far. The more I think about it the more I'm inclined to leave well enough alone, but if anyone has any real world experience I'd appreciate it if you'd share your opinion. I suppose for $25 plus springs and shipping it would be an inexpensive experiment, but I'd rather save the hassle if it's not worth my time.
What say you?
