The hex screw removable tip allows the user to choose various spring weights that will calibrate the ammunition to the gun. Used by Law Enforcement and competitive shooters world wide, will not chip or crack like the factory plastic guide rods are prone to. Will not damage or wear your polymer frame and guaranteed to provide a lifetime of reliable service.
