Nighthawk Custom 1911 Guide Rod is a premium upgrade for your pistol. The FM Series one-piece guide rod is designed to handle consistent use with strength and longevity that exceeds economy-grade parts. The guide rod is constructed from Fully Machined™ 11L17 carbon steel billet and helps prevent the recoil spring from binding and deforming resulting in smooth and reliable cycling. There are no threads in the one-piece guide rod to work loose and compromise your firearm. 

The guide rod offers a beveled backside to prevent contact with the lower lugs and adds extra weight at the front of the pistol limiting muzzle rise for improved control and consistent follow-up shots. This rod is optimized for the commander sized 1911 pistol. All parts are subject to numerous quality-control inspections during the manufacturing process further highlighting Nighthawk Custom’s dedication to producing the highest quality parts available on the market. Try one for yourself and you will immediately notice improved performance in your favorite 1911.
