    Default CT45 with Stainless Steel Guide Rod

    I picked up a SS guide rod last week from ssguiderods.com for my CT45. This add-on was not necessary, nor did it improve the function of the pistol, but it sure looks good! After a call to technical support at KAHR and measuring the length of my guide rod, I confirmed that the factory CT45 guide rod is the same part as the factory TP45 guide rod. KAHR Part: 006CT45 (006TP45) - recoil guide rod. ssguiderods.com offers a SS guide rod for the TP45 so I placed an order for their SS guide rod based on my research. Their SS guide rod arrived with a 90 degree edge on the end that protrudes through the spring and slide. Installation required beveling the end of the guide rod with a fine metal file so it would not catch or bind on the recoil spring while being inserted into the hole in the slide. The procedure took about 10 minutes to complete. I am very please with the stainless steel look.

    Just a question....Why would you worry about "looks" of a guide rod which is totally hidden inside the gun? Since Kahr furnishes a proper steel guide rod to start with, how could that improve anything? If you keep the guide rod/spring lubed like it should be, there won't ever be a rust problem anyway, so why incur the added expense of a stainless steel one?

    Good question. But looks are important. One of our members, IIRC, checkered the tip of his guide rod. Now that was a looker!

    Agreed -- Look ARE important!



    Plus, I wanted to see if I could do it (first time doing one of those).
