    Default Checkered SS Guide Rod for T9

    Long ago I came to the conclusion there is no operational or shooting-related benefit to upgrading from the stock recoil spring guide rod to a stainless version -- the stock guide rod works well (as long as it's not plastic) -- but when the end is checkered, it just "looks cool".

    My former supplier of pre-checkered SS guide rods is out of business (thought I'd read the owner got sick...) so I bought a plain SS rod from Kahr, then put on my magnifying headset and broke out the swiss needle files -- and voila!

    Here she is! I think it came out OK (looks better in real life than the LARGE image does...)

    I still need to get this new-to-me 2018 T9 over to the range!

    I think it looks fabulous, turned out really nice. I've oft wished I knew how to checker metal, I can do wood although no cutters to be had.

    Sure does look cool. The T9 is already a looker and that definitely adds to it!
