    G43 tungsten guide rod

    I just purchased a g43 and was thinking of getting a tungsten guide rod to help with target acquisition. I've read both good and bad reviews. Any advice?

    How does a tungsten guide rod assist with target acquisition?
    There's lots of ________ on here who don't fit your particular stereotype, smearing us with goofball sophistry is what is out of line. It just makes gunowners look like *******s.

    My best G43 help with target aquision on follow up shots was shooting it in local steel matches.

    Tip - your support hand grip makes all the difference.

    Folks often lose their support hand grip between shots.

    Nice. Thanks for the sarcasm. It was more for the follow up shot.

    Good for a target/competition 1911, but why would you want it in a deep concealment gun?

    A tighter and more refined grip will do more for follow up shots than a heavier guide rod will.
    Do not interrupt your enemy while they are making a mistake.

    Perfect, thank you for the input. I will hit the range more with my current setup.

    Next time at the range try the Ben Stoeger's Controlled Pairs (doubles) drill. I think it covers your needs pretty well.

    If you are with someone or have a means of self videoing yourself, it can be a very usefull tool to analyze your shooting habits that may not be picked up otherwise.
