The factory 92A1 recoil guide rod is plastic and is captive.

Steve Bedair makes a stainless steel guide rod for the PX4 where you have to send him your factory one. He might be able to make one for the 92A1 since it's similar to the Dash (90-Two).

unknlogar,

You can use a regular metal Guide Rod and Recoil Spring from a 92FS "Full size",

but you MUST use the Recoil Spring Guide Rod Washer from the DASH 2.

Part #39 from Brownells on the schematic.

http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/pid=0/sid=877/schematicsdetail/90_Two

$3.44 USD


Brownells does not show that part on the Captive Guide Rod/Spring,for the 92A1.
Like Tracksol said,
Rest assured, it's Polymer...

Why is it that i can't seem to find the metal equivilant for the 92A1 recoil. The plastic one is bending and i haven't even fired the damn thing yet. Just cleaning and going over some drills has caused this. I assumed that once i purchased the weapon a metal replacement would not be hard to find. And yet i learned that it seems to be almost impossible to find one. Thanks for the info. The recoil spring is all one piece and only comes apart if its broken. Thanks again.

They started getting into shooters' hands in the end of September... it just hasn't been out that long.

Bedair will make a metal replacement. But bent does not mean broken.

I know bent isn't broken. But to bend and not have any real use in it makes me worried. I shutter to think in a combat situation if it failed. Thats why I would prefer to buy a metal replacement.

That is why you shoot a handgun prior to using it in that role...

I've heard a few people mention that the rod on 9xA1 are bent, and most just want to get rid of it. Yet, there are some that just shoot the gun and have yet to have any issues. So, I stand by my statement.

If they were breaking at high rates due to it, then it is a problem. But that is not the case, at the present.

i just got my 96a1 and im not impressed, plastic trigger, plastic mag release, and plastic guide rod that is bent even before firing. i really like the feel and the utility of having a rail but really would like to swap out these parts for metal ones. i dont believe these parts could possibly last as long as the metal ones and i think the reasoning for this crap was in the name of weight reduction to offset the increased weight of adding a rail. anyone finds anything aftermarket let me know.

The parts you mention are available in Metal.

And I believe the Trigger is metal,just coated with Polymer.

The only difference from your 96-A1 and a 92FS/96FS are the Slide and the Frame and "captive" Guide Rod.
Everything else is compatible.(see my post above for how to run a metal guide rod)

Brownells is your place,
and if you look at the Schematics,you'll see the parts have the same numbers for both variants.

For a Steel Trigger,look at the Stock/Combat schematic.

So a captive A1 guide rod and spring will work with a standard 92fs?

No, it doesn't work backwards - there is that extra piece that must be added to a regular guiderod to make it fit in a 92A1. But, a 92A1 guiderod will not fit a 92. 1 end of the 92A1 guiderod is too big.

ALL my weapons. No need to look further.
