I replaced my recoil spring, but left the guide rod in there. . . its a little less field ready, but I like the solid rod.

Main spring has an ILS system safety that I don't like so it is gone. The guide I replaced was a 2 piece and replaced with a full length Kimber rod and cap. Getting closer to what I want, I may have some internals to replace. Will not know until I polish all parts.
