Let us know what you think. Myself, I've had no problems sticking with the factory RSAs in my Glocks.

Glocks are made to flex.

I put one in my G23 and its cool. I actually cant tell the difference because i never used the factory one. The steel one is suppose to reduce recoil and lasts longer.

I have a stainless guide rod in my G22. I don't know for a fact
that it makes a difference, but it makes me feel better knowing
that I did something.

You probably will not be able to tell its there. Really only helps when you are going really really fast, there is a slight amount of muzzle flip reduction. But it is more reliable and will last you a lot longer than 3000 rounds.

The factory guide rods WILL break, I've seen it first hand. Not like it's a big thing, they can take a ton of abuse but I just can't see the steel or titanium breaking. Have 2 on order (2 different Glocks) so I can't speak to the recoil affects...and why not have spare parts on hand?

Well I do like having a spare RSA and have done so for my G22 and G23. I also just ordered one for the used G27 I bought about a week ago. All the RSAs are standard Glock.
