  • 1911 Guide Rod

    2020-6-2u2002·u2002Dan Wesson uses a GI style guide rod in all of its commanders. Works very well (can't use the GI guide rod with a flat spring through). Kimber Pro is 4', however, and has a bull barrel and a reverse plug; there is no way to make it work with a GI plug that I can see. The 3' version is impossible with a GI guide rod.
