Excellent upgrade for my SA 9mm 1911
I needed a FLGR for my SA 9mm target/loaded 1911. This part dropped in and works flawlessly with that particular gun. Makes disassemly a lot easier, as well - no more Allen key needed!
Fits Remington 1911 R1S
Fits right into the gun! Functions properly and more smoothly than the half length guide rod included. If you purchase this item however, I recommend you have gun lubricant and a barrel lug wrench to ease installation.
I installed this after viewing how to's along with the comped bushing. Para's in black and these stainless parts are an nice accent to it. Next is sear hammer beavertail springs. Shots nice now but ya have to make it yours and with WC parts it's reliable and sweeter to shoot. He who dies with the most toys wins.
Wilson Combat Full-Length Guide Rod
BEAUTIFUL piece of machining. I work in manufacturing & it is obvious to me that this is a highly precision component - bought one for my full-size and commander 1911's.....50 Stars!
Much Smoother
I use these on my Ruger 1911s and the action runs much smoother and more stable then with the government guide rod. Coupled with the 18 pound chrome silicone springs and they run well.
Its Wilson Combat
Replaced the short GI guide rod in my Remington R1, overall action is much crisper. First three mags all dead in 10 circle.
1/4 for the flat wire models.
Great stuff. This one on my standard 1911, but wanted to do the same for my Sig and read....... . Just a is not compatable the flat wire recoil spring Wilson sells or the stock one in my Sig...I found this out the hard way but dont regret a thing! ...............and was worried a bit. After a quick call, Wilson Combat hooked me up with a 1/4 full length guide rod that works perfectly with the flat wire spring here and of Sigs 1911s. Wilson is always helpful with their quality merchandise.
I really love this part. Now I dont need the allen wrench to remove the guide rod, and dont have to worry about the 2pc FLGR my Springfield Loaded came with breaking. Fit and function is Great and the gun shoots great. Thanks again to Wilson Combat for what you do.
Full Length Performance
A full length guide rod feels much smoother. Ive used wilson 1 piece guide rods for 11 years now. Combined with their Ultima lube and and youve got smooth slick reliability.
Great product!
I just purchased and installed one of these on my Wilson Combat CQB that Ive had for a dozen or so years, and it is great. Easy to install, works really well. Id like to see them made with a black finish in the future.
1942 Signal Special
Popped this into my original Colt government model 1911 with bare hands, no problems. After reading the reviews Ill probably use a tool when I remove it next time. It tightens everything right up, no more rattle. This weapon was actually used in WW2 and I am proud to shoot it regularly at my gun club. What a great product. Just superb in every way. WC has a loyal customer here.
Awesome Quality!
Perfect fit on my RIA 1911 45ACP GI. Cant wait to test it out at the range!
Better Than New
I cant believe my Colt Gunsite didnt come with one of these. With the new #20 spring, its like a new gun, only better! Thanks WC
Great modification - but wear those safety glasses!
I have the full length guide rod in my 1911. It cycles smoothly and is very tight - a perfect fit. However, do NOT try to remove or reinstall the plug without safety glasses!!! Im writing this with a half-moon cut beside my left eye - only the grace of God saved me from my own stupidity. WEAR THE GLASSES LIKE WILSON TELLS YOU TO.
No More Alan Wrench For Me
Put this in My Springfield loaded to replace the crappy 2 piece it comes with. Easy to install, fits perfectly. Over all great addition. Just another Fine Wilson Combat product.
Remington R1 Enhanced
Got this to replace the standard G.I. style guide mine broke and I wanted a full length to replace. This thing was a perfect drop in and really smoothed out the action compared to the G.I. Much better feeding and overall function.
No more coil springs
Have been a Bill Wilson now Wilson Combat customer for years. His professional Gunsmiths are the best in the business. This Full-Length Guide Rod has extended the life of my springs after many matches.
Looks better than factory
Quick and easy install in my spring field. I will have to give it to Wilson for producing quality products but. Looks cool and I couldnt even feel a difference than my factory Stubby guid rod. 400 rounds at range 1-13-14
1911 SIG .45
Fast installation and a smoother cycle. Quality product!
Perfect fit and operation.
I successfully installed this product on a Colt Gold Cup Trophy series 80 and shot 300 rounds without a single problem. If yall decide to purchase this product I highly suggest using some of them shok buffs to go along with it.
Great Quality!!
Installed on my remington r1 stainless. This full length guide rod fit perfect and installed in minutes. I am very happy with wilson combat products!
NICE fit in PT1911
Drop in perfect fit for Taurus PT1911. Slide definitely feels smoother and obviously superior to the factory piece. Cant wait to try it out, can only be an improvement!
This guide rod is awesome and I would recommend it... Just a is not compatable the flat wire recoil spring Wilson sells or the stock one in my Sig...I found this out the hard way but dont regret a thing!
Like Magic
Makes my Para USA 1911 cycle like a gun three times its price range. I am happy!
25g a+
Recieved order really quick. Installed easy, and fit like a glove. Slide cycles smooth and solid every time. 0 issues with this item.
Wilson Combat does it again!
Installed on my WC 1911 and Colt Gold Cup. Easy installation and perfect fit.
This guide rod is built extremely well. The shine and polish on mine was incredible it felt almost as if it had oil on it. My guns slide to frame fit is tight as ever, and my groups have shrunk down a noticible amount. I am solid Wilson Combat customer for life!! Thanks to everone there at WC!
Expected awesome and it was....
bought this for my Rock Island .45 and it really helped smooth the action. with the stock setup there was a noticeable rough catch, dropped in this guide rod and its 10 times better
Pleased with my purchase.
Heavy duty and well built with every exspectation that this guide rod will serve me well for many years to come. Replaced the guide rod in my Rock Island A1 government model 45 ACP with a 5 inch barrel. Installation was easy and the fit was perfect. Really made a huge difference in performace and control. An upgrade you should consider. Pair it with a Wilson 18 # recoil spring and shock buff to make a great weapon even better.
Full length guide rod
After dropping in my new full length guide rod from Wilson Combat my 1911 feels and operates so much better, cant wait to take it to the range.
Top notch part
I bought this the put in my Springfield Range Officer because I like the looks of the full-length rods and because I have never had one before. Construction is very good; felt very solid and did not feel that I needed to polish it as I do some parts I buy. After shooting I would say there may be some very minimal reduction of muzzle flip from the extra weight. Hand racking the slide also seems slightly smoother.
Good stuff!!
This is truly a drop in part, very easy to install! 5 min. tops! Thanks for making it easy!
Top Notch FLGR
Just outfitted my Remington R1 with the 25G FLGR and then fired a box of 50 rounds - result is smooth & controlled action; just what I wanted!!! Wilson Combat makes a great product here, total drop-in...
Fantastic Replacement
Better then Colt original FLGR. My XSE functions faster & smoother with this Wilson part. I am now changing out other parts like the firing pin, extractor etc. Go Wilson!
great buy
works great, helps smooth recoil. if you get it, you really need the bushing tool. very hard on thumbs with out the tool!
Turn Your Gold Cup Platinum
My new Colt Gold Cup was accurate out of the box. Very accurate. Now it is over the top. Best drop-in part I ever bought. Easy install, get the plastic wrench, no troubles. Bravo and high praise.
excellent quality
I purchased this full lenth guide rod to put into my Colt Government model. Quality is excellent but a bushing tool is almost a must to install. The edges of the cap are sharp and my bushing fits tight and is hard to turn with my fingers.Get the tool and save your fingers.
para usa gi expert.
bought this for my para gi expert.the only problem was that the plug took alot of presure to get it to go under the barrel lug. it made the frame/slide fit alot tighter though...great product highly recommend.
When will this 1 piece full length guide rod be in stock! I neeeeeeeed one!
Great Fit in Springfield Milspec
Works pretty well in my Milspec. Blends in nicely with the stainless barrel. Lockup seems tighter and the recoil is more consistent.
Great Fit
I purchased this for my Para GI Expert ESP, great fit and looks great. Took all of about 4 minutes to do.
quality part; improved performance
dropped this in with a new 17# Wilson spring to replace the factory 2-piece setup and saw results that afternoon at the range.
When you need accuracy at a great price,
i have a gi. 45 from a reputable company. The tolerances were loose and it shot all over. I installed this guide rod and it tightened up my slide enough. helped alot with shooting and got my groups at 20 yards to 2 inches. not bad for a assembly line gun.
This is an outstanding drop in part.
The fit in the GI Expert was even better than shown on the video. The bushing tool makes this an easy task, particularly if youre also putting in an 18.5 lb recoil spring at the same time. Wilson Combat simply works every time.
Springfield Range Officer
The guiderod fit in nice and tight. Racking the slide is not as difficult as it appeared from previous reviews. Have yet to shoot with it installed.
Quick, Simple and High Quality....Everything Wilson Combat
Drops right in and fits perfect. Helped make the recoil in my Springfield Range Officer much more consistent
Excellent Craftsmanship!
the quality of this guid rod is unsurpassed! dropped right in with no problems! another hit from wilson combat
Great change from using and allen wrench on my Loaded Springer. Smooth and excellent quality. A+++++++++
excellent part! fit my springfield loaded perfectly. good bye allen key!
Great product and value
the full length guide rod fit my para ordinance gi expert perfect highly recommend
1911 full length guide rod and plug
This a great item and holds up to the wilson combat standard.
Replacement for a 2 piece guide rod
Excellent replacement for the 2 piece guide rod that came with my 1911. Dropped right in without a problem. I will enjoy not having to tighten the guide rod while at the range.
Best thing for a 1911
I have one in my Colt Commander XSE and just ordered four more for my four other 1911s. Definitely smooths out the operation of the slide.
Govt Model
Part dropped right in to my Colt 1991A1. No problems at all. I prefer a full length guide rod as a personal preference.
