So here are some promised pictures of my Steyr with the polished guide rod from Big Taco. It was like $40 with a factory spring installed. I think it is an extra $5 or so to get it in black. I wanted a little bling, so I stuck with the polished version. I have yet to shoot it with the new rod. But even cycling it by hand feels a tiny bit better. Maybe it is just what we call in the car business my “butt dyno” being broken. But we’ll see. Going to the range soon. Taking Lori and her new gun (see next post).
Install took about 20 seconds. I like the look. Should be much more durable than the factory plastic piece.
Here is a shot with the slide open:
Here is a shot of the business end:
And here is the gratuitous “Breaking and entering disposal kit” shot that people seem to like so much. BTW, the knife is a Columbia River. I like it, it looks mean and it cuts well. And it was fairly affordable compared to other knifes of it’s type.
