Masada Stainless Guide Rod
NOTE: The Masada Stainless Guide Rod will ONLY fit the Masada, it WILL NOT FIT the Masada Slim. The two pistols use different guide rod designs.
The Masada Stainless Guide Rod is a stainless captured spring recoil rod meant to replace the OEM plastic guide rod assembly. It comes with a custom wound 18 pound flat wound spring pre-installed, which reduces felt recoil and muzzle flip. All Rod components and hardware are stainless steel, and the part is a drop in replacement for the OEM plastic guide rod.
NOTE: The spring is custom wound for this application, and is under considerable compression. Manticore Arms does not recommend any attempt to disassemble the product or attempt to use another spring, as other springs may compress fully solid and cause firearm malfunction, and uncontrolled release of the spring from the rod assembly could cause injury.

I have two Masada pistols and two Manticore Arms Stainless Guide Rods. They work great and give the pistols less felt recoil. I am waiting for one to fit the Masada Slim, my third Masada!

Bought this for my Masada 9mm. I wasn’t expecting to notice a difference since it is only an 18lbs spring, but I immediately noticed the difference even 1lbs made over stock
The upgraded guide rod and spring are very nice. However, it makes a terrible noise when racking the slide. Sounds like metal on metal, the spring riding along the rod. Added some oil and that didn’t make a difference. Hopefully after some rounds, the noise will stop.
