This Steyr A1 Pistols combo package includes both a Steel Guide Rod for reduced recoil and a Brass Weight for reduce muzzle flip. This package is offered at a 10% discount when you buy both.
Replacing the factory plastic recoil spring guide rods in the Steyr A1 Pistols is a simple and effective means of reducing muzzle flip. The ounce of added weight helps to counterbalance the rearward slap of the slide. Black nitride coating keeps it from scratch resistant and free from rust.
User serviceable. Simply remove your factory spring from its plastic guide rod, drop onto the Ranger Point guide rod, and install threaded keeper. No special tools necessary. Made from high-quality stress proof steel, for a lifetime of service. Coated with a bake-on moly finish, for the ultimate in dry lubricity and smooth function.
Note: The C and S models already come with a steel guide rod. Thus, why we only sell guide rods for the L and M models.
These beautifully CNC machined brass weights install easily in five minutes into the molded pocket inside the frame of each Steyr A1 pistol (no epoxy or frame modification necessary). The weight installs under the barrel, improving the gun's balance and reducing muzzle flip. The already fast Steyr pistols come back on target even faster!
* Comes with a set of two screws and Allen wrench
Brass Weight Options

Installation / Removal instructions
1) Unload your Steyr and remove the slide
2) Put the RPP Steyr frame weight, logo up, into the pocket of the frame located under the barrel. Modest force may be necessary to depress the weight until it is flush with the edges of the frame pocket.
3) While keeping the weight depressed, use the Allen wrench to install the provided set screws. Turn them until they are flush with the weight, but no more.
4) Reinstall your slide and go shooting!
5) Should you wish to remove the weight at any time, simply back out the set screws and tap the frame upside down against a solid surface. The weight will pop free.

Installed this kit on my L9 and I am pleased to report that the pistol functions perfectly and it is flatter and back on target faster than before. Mission accomplished.
The fit and finish are excellent. I have not shot the guns yet at the range but there is a noticeable difference in weight to the front of the gun. Confident it will reduce recoil. Thanks
Before purchasing the kit, I contacted the company with a question. I was pleasantly surprised someone answered my email over the Christmas holidays. Two thumbs up!
If that is not enough, the kit comes with the necessary two hex wrenches, which many companies do not provide. Another kudos for that!
Both the guide rod and the weight are very nice upgrades - please read my corresponding reviews for details and installation tips, which are more important for the rod.
Lastly, as the items are a bit costly, it makes sense to buy this kit, you need both, you will like both, and you will end up saving a few bucks. :-)
I have now shot several hundred rounds thru the Steyr 9mm ( long ). Using factory loads, it performed flawlessly. I also reload 9mm using Bullseye, ( an older product I have used for years, it is a bit dirtier and creates a bit more smoke, I know ). Just bought 2 each 8 lb containers for 50% off, so I will be using it for a while. So, with the Ranger Point brass weight and Guide Rod installed, a heavier load is required to cycle the gun. I needed to go from 3.9 grains to 4.3 grains. Funny, weird thing was that while working up the load, the Steyr would have " light strikes " on the primer, failing to go bang. Even after firing the pistol, the bullet would cycle into battery, and the next shot would not go off, a light strike. Never had this happen before. Keep in mind the gun is still rather new too. Just a weird occurrence in my experience. No fault to Ranger Point.
For 50 bucks this is the best improvement / product you can buy. Makes a hugh difference. Quality stuff, easy to install, well worth it.
So much stuff I have bought has been just hype. Not here. Well thought out and work as advertised. Already looking for another Steyr pistol to put your parts in. Money well spent.
I wanted to say something bad , or at least that the quality of the parts were off. I was skeptical of any improvements or benefits to be gained from these things that being said! Dudes and Dudettes if you own a steyr L,M,C, or SC RUN! don't walk to Ranger Point and grab that set they have at a great price point and install it. Do your own before and after shot assessment. When you're done come back and write a review on how truly awesome this "bit of kit” truly is. I’m so impressed I’m trying for a threaded barrel and comp because I think this platform is amazing with these additions. When I saw the steyr it was love at first sight with Ranger Point. it’s now an endless romance. The quality of the parts the and design are why I’m now an RPP “fanboy.” I want them to make a tactical hat with the Velcro patch and a American flag on the side field facing forward so I can extol the virtues of my parts and they can take mental notes while they see my hat that has the website info and phone # “ hint hint” with a Velcro tap so I can afix a name tag or call sign. I will describe this company's products in a few words and they are gun accessories done correctly! I am going to quote my father a navy vet ( I’m Army) my son is a Marine, he used to say, “ Son if if it pleases you, it tickles the hell out of me !” Well done ranger point I am pleased ! Sincerely Owen Johnson P.S. One happy camper!
I admit I was skeptical at first of buying these. I figured it wouldn't make a difference. But glad I gave it a try, really does make a noticeable difference. So much that I ordered one for my L9 A1 as well. There was some crud in the threads that was hard to remove at first. But I prevailed. I do wish it was offered in black finish. If we're gonna cheat, let's cheat big!!!!
Amazing quality products. Took a whole 5 minutes to install both. Would definitely recommend to friends.
