Default Aftermarket guide rod and spring?

I recently traded an AR upper for a couple pistols, one of them being this Gen 2 G17. I'm fairly sure the guide rod and spring are aftermarket (OEM are all black right?).






Any insight as to who made it?

That looks like a stainless steel guide rod. OEM are plastic.

I have a stainless in my G-23 and got it from The Glock Store for $29.95. glockstore.com

It weighs 28.02 grams. The factory rod and spring weigh 10.35.

They offer a tungsten one for $49.95. The tungsten is heavy at 43.55 grams.

Regards,

OS

Yep that's a stainless. Keep it and add a buffer. :thumbsup:

Yeah, I like stainless GR, too. I'm not a fan of buffers personally but to each his own. I guess I used to be against SSGR too until I broke a factory one in a 26. Then I only had one in a 19c. After that, they go in every GLOCK I own.
