For about three years now I've had a Smith and Wesson 910s with the plastic recoil rod. Pistol works fine as is but a couple of friends keep telling to change to a metal rod rather then the plastic. Both state that I will get oncresed accuracy/reliability with the metal rod over the long haul.
What is general opinion about changing to a metal over the plastic?
The pistol has been very reliable with about 1200+ rounds though it so far.
:D

adds weight to the front,helps lessen muzzle flip a bit.

switching from plastic to metal guide rod increases accuracy?

Your friends ever think about being comedians? :D

i doubt you will see any accuracy difference but if the plastic one breaks it may give you a rough time but thats the same for anything really

i too have a 910 got it at walmart worst factory trigger ive ever experienced but it broke in

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. There's no point putting money into something that isn't needed.

I'm one of those guys that is indifferent. Like Plisk said, "If it ain't broke...". For me its more of a weight thing, which ever I shoot it better with is what I'll go with.

However, if consensus is that the stock plastic is prone to breakage or will become unreliable, I'd probably change it.
