MADE IN THE USA
Replacing the factory plastic recoil spring guide rods in the Steyr A1 Pistols is a simple and effective means of reducing muzzle flip. The one ounce of added weight (L9 1.2oz, L40 1oz, M9/M40 .9oz) 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.

Didn’t feel much of a difference from the stock guide rod other than the weight felt slightly better but knowing that it will hold up better over time and Heat is comforting. Well made product.
I put red loctite on the screw to hold the spring in. I haven't had any problems. The gun cycles just fine, I don't notice any added weight. These Styer pistols feel very well weight balanced; adding accessories doesn't seem to change that. Getting the spring onto the guide rod was a pain in the butt. I could see using a wrench to force the spring down, then screwing in the main screw to be the easy way to get the job done. Long story short, it works and it's quality made.
Bought 2, both worked well and appear to be of good quality. Looks to be a good and tough finish on the part. I had to order spring sets from Steyr and cut the plastic rods to get the springs off. There are no aftermarket options, and Glock springs Don't fit. I know have the original un touched recoil assembly, and a new steel assembly. Also adds little weight to the gun. I am very pleased.
Had to clean the threads out some small chips where left in the if threads and whatever locktite you put on there was dry and brittle. Overall I’m pleased
Easy upgrade. Well made. I highly recommend.
I have gottin two sofar one of my L9 and one for my M 357-A1.
Well worth the $$. And easy to put in . For upgrades this should be the frist 1 .
Wanted to replace the plastic guide rod in my L9-A1 and after searching the web. I came across the one from Ranger Point and order it. I watched the video another customer made and followed his instructions and so far after 1000+ rounds the gun is working perfectly and I feel better its got a metal rod instead of a plastic one. The fit and finish is top notch and ordering was a breeze.
I ordered mine for the L9-A1 guide rod and it gives additional weight in front of the trigger. Milling is nice. Guide rod is a captured system with a set screw .Looks very nice in the chassis, easy upgrade.
