    Like the added weight and smoother recoil. Paired with Herrington Arms Comp it is a flatter shooting gun with quicker follow up shots.

    Necessary upgrade

    Posted by Ray on Jan 21st 2024

    For the most part the Walther PDP is turn key. There isnt much that you need to make this pistol fantastic but, if you so desire adding a little weight and lower poundage spring lowers your felt recoil impulse, making the pistols a little more controllable. And, the stainless guide rod looks nice. I think this is a great addition for anyone looking to take their shooting game to the next level.

    I called Zack to see if he could make me a fully custom captured guide rod made of brass. This would add desired weight to the front end of the pistol. He said, glad to do it, I paid online and it shipped the same afternoon The service get any better than this ?

    Customer service is just as great as their products

    Posted by Colleen Betts on Dec 4th 2023

    In the process of tuning my Walther PDP- F series into my primary handgun for competitions, I made multiple modifications. Without question, ZR Tactical has been the easiest company to work with, and their captured guide rod is high quality and effective. Customer service? Off the charts, with rapid replies to questions, and fast turnaround of purchases. Going forward, I will go to ZR Tactical first for anything I need.

    Well Made Guide Rod

    Posted by Paul King on Nov 27th 2023

    What a great Guide Rod for Both My PDP Pro SD and PPQ M2. Works great and Looks good. Not sure why Walther doesn't Put these in their handguns. It's a must needed upgrade. Not a big fan of the plastic. The stainless steal is just the best choice.

    Works perfect. High quality piece. Took the snappy recoil out and balanced the PDP out much better than the factory polymer guide rod.
