    I sent an email to 12volt man about his SS guide rod....has anyone used one? Also, I did a search on here and could not find any information on which wolff spring to use...any information would be greatly appreciated.

    no known aftermarket springs exist.
    couple people were going to do some experimenting, but no word yet.

    I installed a Jackash rod right after I got the gun. I removed the captured spring from the factory original and use it uncaptured with the new rod. It takes a little finesse to get it reinstalled, but it's not impossible.

    The rod is high quality and has performed flawlessly.

    12Volt does the work as a side business...he has a "day job". Don't be surprised if he's a bit slow on returning your email. He's also recovering from a recent injury, so I think his guide rod work got a little backed up. If you want a rod, I'd go ahead and place an order -- he'll get it turned out as quickly as he can -- and you'll be very happy with it!

    Hope he is alright....I read the thread about some people testing different springs. How difficult would it be to remove the factory spring? I have never field stripped the M9, so I don't know if it's designed like the Glocks. I suppose I should just take a few days and just read through all of the threads, so I don't ask the same questions that you see on other forums. I just want to make sure that my M9 functions flawlessly and I am confident that with the aid of everyone on this site, that will happen.

    Removing the captured spring from the factory rod takes about 5 minutes. The real trick is measuring it and figuring out a replacement. But like I said, I have no problem using the factory spring with the new rod. People have talked about trying some alternatives, but I don't know if anyone has actually gotten around to doing it yet!

    Does anyone have a SIGPRO? I know they have the flat recoil springs and they are non-captured and they have a plastic guide rod. Could the whole setup work or maybe just the spring?

    I am using a Jackash guide rod with the stock spring and it works perfectly. I am very happy with my guide rod, the polish he puts on it is outstanding. You may have to wait a few weeks to get it, but it is worth the wait.
