Radian Weapons’ COMPRESSOR Quick-Tune Guide Rod for Glocks By: Luke C.


Part of the fun of goofing around with Glock pistols is that you can have them tuned to your exact specifications and needs. Reduced power or increased power recoil springs are one way to tune your pistol to your exact type of ammunition and components setup. Radian Weapons has just announced the introduction of their COMPRESSOR Quick-Tune Guide Rod for Glock pistols. The Quick-Tune Guide Rod takes the concept of an adjustable guide rod/spring set and simplifies it so that the end user doesn’t have to worry about losing hardware in between spring changes.

Most adjustable guide rods on the market use a cap screw to retain the spring. The problem? Loose screws are too common and thread locker forces you to commit to one spring weight.

Enter the screwless design of the COMPRESSOR Quick-Tune Guide Rod. The dovetail interface is captured by the spring, creating a simple and secure lock-up. Flutes along the guide rod allow the spring to move with less friction for smoother cycling. The heat treated guide rod has a slick, durable, and corrosion-resistant Nitride finish.
