You can get metal guide rods from JackAsh Custom Shop (12VoltMan). It utilizes the stock spring but it is uncaptured.Climb14er said:Two scenarios for my M9:
1) Where do I buy a complete plastic guide rod with recoil spring assembly?
2) If I go to the custom metal guide rod, what type of recoil spring do I use in conjunction with the metal guide rod?
With other pistols, I simply get a Wolff recoil spring or call the factory. With Steyr, I have these :?
Nobody has been able to identify a good replacement spring other than the stock one.
