    Its a guiderod

    SS Guide rod, Drop in, fits. I didn't notice that much difference in recoil, definitely harder to rack. Buy it for the steel rod , not the recoil impulse.

    My part arrived earlier than I expected, which was unexpected in a good way. It fit like a glove and was super easy to install. It looks good and just has to be better than the stock Guide Rod. I have not had the opportunity to shoot my weapon yet. However, I am looking forward to seeing if I can even tell the difference., and at this point it really doesn't matter because I like it!

    Bought this because my factory guide rod snapped in half 4.5k rd count. Works great so far 250rds in and zero failures. It is noticeably harder to rack but that’s ok this guide rod eats up the recoils better than factory and now my hands don’t hurt as much. I’m shooting 500rd per session.

    What a wonderful experience it is when you call a company and a person with great knowledge picks up the phone on the second ring and answers all my questions. The product works great and improves the performance and reliability of the weapon. Hard to believe Walther would put such a cheap and suspect part in their firearms. Thank you ZR Tactical for making a great part that allows me to trust my self defense weapon.
