Guide rod for TP9SFX

Post by GallowayPrecision » Fri Sep 14, 2018 9:46 am

Got one of the forum moderators to send us their SFX guide rod to get measurements and start making guide rods for them.

Nice!!

.. I picked up a Sig P226 stainless from Galloway per suggestion for testing in my TP9SFX but found it a bit short for non-capture spring setup and harder to get seated

So then I tried a Sig X5 Stainless Guide that works really well for un-captured springs and quick changes but I do like captured springs

Still testing these, had to fix broken firing pin first
1. Factory Top
2. Sig P226 Stainless
3. Sig X5 Stainless Heavy with Wolf 16lb - Sig P226/P220 spring
4. 1911 Commander 13lb spring
5. Wolf 17lb - Sig P226/P220 Variable spring

Looking to up date (upgrade?) the spring on my SFX for competition.
Does anyone have info on the OEM spring weight?
I dont want to test springs without a starting point.

Not to beat a dead horse.
I see lots of posts of using a G34 gen 3 guide rod with a Gen 3-Gen 4 adapter ring.
Can I just use a Gen 4 guide rod or is there a problem with diameter of the rod?
Thanks in advance for any help offered.

I'm only ten minutes away from you if you need an SFx to play with. I have two OE RSA's and a Sprinco RSA

Shoot me an email at tech@gallowayprecision.com, the guide rod the moderator sent never got here.

Got some guide rods to measure and get a SFX guide rod prototyped and tested. Always nice to meet and talk with a customer that understands springs as well.
