The steel rods are supposed to assist with muzzle flip, but I compared it with the tungsten guide rod and I would choose the tungsten guide rod over the steel guide rod any day. Its heavier and certainly keeps the front end of the glock pistol down.

Default Stainless steel guide rods are great, however...

Tungsten guide rods are even better... Go to here, at Lone Wolf Distributing, and input Glock 23 for info:

Lone Wolf Distributors - Product Detail - Lone Wolf Tungsten Guide Rod

I have them, the tungsten guide rods, 17lb. recoil spring captured system for both my G21 and G21SF. Looking forward to getting the same for my G30 and G30SF, when they become available.

PrinC is right. They DO make a positive difference.

Glockcurmudgeon, out...

When you try it, you will realise why its a tad more in cost than the steel. Its value for money right there.

I put probably 5 or 6 thousand rounds through my Gen4 GLOCK17 before switching to a steel guide rod. I like it a lot, and it does help me slightly with accuracy. Still breaking in my GLOCK27, but will add 'steel' soon.

I also like the way it looks when everything is clean and polished.
