Just got mine in the mail today for my g23 anyone like them good or bad?
Let us know what you think. Myself, I've had no problems sticking with the factory RSAs in my Glocks.
Me either I just like to tinker
Yea let us know. My g23 factory plastic rod is still going strong
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.
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.
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:

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.
They should cause cost a lot more than the steel
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.
