    Is it safe and/or possible to convert my RIA 4 inch FLGR to a Short GI guide rod, Or do I need to change out all sorts of other things... It's been a long day and sorry if I confuse you with the question form.

    Most of the 4" guns are bushing-less and use some type of bull barrel - my RIA compact did as does my Springer. If that's the case then no you can't use a GI setup...

    Well It's the same as yours, reverse plug and whatnot, but I'm just tired of the tool required for breakdown:/
    And thank you for being so Quick to respond:) either way I think I'll forgo purchasing the guide rod til taxes.... I might just mod out a 5 incher haha:)
