On Orders Of $200
The G43 Tungsten Guide Rod is designed with a slightly lighter spring to allow it to function with a wider range of ammo. This also makes it much easier to pull back the slide which has been a problem for many of our G43 shooters.
Of course, the main advantage of the Tungsten Guide Rod is that the added weight helps reduce much of the felt recoil and also makes the gun function better, returning the slide more consistently and thereby improving overall accuracy!
- 3X Heavier then the Factory Plastic Guide Rod.
- Reduces Recoil and Muzzle Flip.
- Wont Break or Bend.
- Faster acquisition for follow up shots.

I did the trigger springs and the guide rod. What a difference. It is a completely different gun. Great trigger and very manageable recoil in my Glock 48.

OEM wobbles when slide is racked. I noticed the tungsten rod is much more stout with zero wobble. Haven’t been to test yet will update after.
Reduces G43 Slide Racking Effort
Posted by Al K on Mar 12th 2018
Installed Taran Tactical’s (version of The Glock Store’s) RSA, and noticed an immediate reduction in the effort required to rack my G43’s slide. Just what the doctor ordered for my 75 year old arthritic hands. When added to a previously installed Taran Tacticall G43 Connector, a $0.25 action job, and a half dozen Taran Tactical +1 & +2 magazine extensions, resulted in my G43 becoming my favorite CCW pistol.

Fits a lot better than factory guide rod and better quality
Excellent part for the 43

Prior to installation my G43 had me shooting with the accuracy of a storm trooper. After installation I shoot like The Baba Yaga himself. Highly recommended.

Heavy guide rod works great. Muzzle flip is reduced even with the hottest defensive rounds. I think it's worth every penny
Subtle but definite improvement

I did a side by side test and can feel the improved recoil, also the overall balance is better. I don't know if it's worth the price to you but it's nice. Good build quality, no issues.

This is a nice little piece of kit. Simple drop in instillation. You notice the quality in construction the minute you take it out of the package. Adds a little bit of weight to the my glock 43 which will help mitigate recoil. All and all great product.

Drops right in. Adds a little weight. Recoil more manageable. Perfect!
