If you want to use a GI guide rod, that's no problem either. Although the full length guide rod has the 'cool' factor, it's a cure to a non existent problem.

    2012-2-19 · The hint to me is the full length guide rod takes out the side to side jump on the recoil. After i installed the full length guide rod the recoil becomes straight up now. The 1911 becomes more controllable and more shootable. I think maybe the recoil spring side to side forces causes this side to side motion on the recoil.

    2017-5-26 · A full length guide rod on a 1911 provides a little extra forward weight on the pistol. The two-piece full length rods tend to unscrew at inopportune times, which can affect function of the firearm. GI type is far superior. Easier to field strip, allows using the rod plug pushed against a hard object to charge the pistol or clear a stubborn jam.
