Product Description

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.

*Description courtesy of GlockStore. Disclosure - The G43 Tungsten Guide Rod may or may not have a black colored tip. Some models are completely silver through and through.*

*Taran Tactical recommends that you go to a certified gunsmith or Glock armorer for installation*

  1. A+

    Posted by Unknown on Jun 23rd 2020

    Put this in my 43x with the grand master connector kit and its a huge difference. Definitely recommend to do both. Great quality, no malfunctions. Premium upgrades for a decent price.

  2. Different gun

    Posted by Ronald Fletcher on Sep 20th 2019

    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.

  3. Fit perfect

    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.

  4. 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.

  5. Perfect fit

    Fits a lot better than factory guide rod and better quality

  6. 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.

  7. Good upgrade

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

  8. Subtle but definite improvement

    Posted by Frank Petronio on May 1st 2017

    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.

  9. Great Quality

    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.

  10. Works great

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