Sprinco Recoil Management Guide Rod System for 1911 5" Barrel - (Full Length Guide Rod)
This Sprinco Recoil System consists of a full length stainless steel guide rod and dual recoil springs. The primary recoil spring works just like a standard recoil spring to control the cycling of the slide. The heavier secondary recoil spring is actuated during the last portion of the slides travel. This cushions the slide to frame impact and smooths out the transition from rearward to forward motion of the slide. This has the effect of reducing felt recoil to the shooter's hand and reducing muzzle flip, thus improving sight recovery and shooting speed.
This is a proven design that has been improved and refined over the years. The guide rods are made of high quality stainless steel and are meticulously hand polished. The recoil springs are high quality chrome silicone springs designed for long service life. Quality control is top notch and they are backed by a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer. For shooting standard 230 grain ball ammo a 14# recoil spring is normally the best match with this system for the least muzzle flip.
* This model fits 1911 clones with standard 5" barrel and bushing plugs including Colt, Springfield Armory and Kimber 1911 .45 ACP type pistols.
* Includes Bushing matched to guide rod. Does not include recoil spring which is available separately.
