Review: Springfield Armory TRP 1911 Armory Kote
i owned the SA lw operator and it had the two piece guide rod and raquired a hex wrench did like the fact that it required a tool to break it down
*i didnt like the fact
A friend of mine has a Springfield Armory lightweight that came with a full length rod. He decided to just buy a standard plug & guide rod & swapped them in.
