What's your preference and why?

Neither. If I had to pick... one piece. Have had the 2 piece ones unscrew sometimes while firing.

I like the GI setup. My Professional, GRP and CQB came that way. Guide rods are a waste of weight and money IMO.

2 piece. You can see the seam where the two parts separate.

If there's gonna be a guide rod, I'd much rather have it be a 1 piece.

This, except USGI is better than a one piece.

Yup. All of my 1911s have short/USGI guide rods. I'm nowhere near a high-enough level shooter to appreciate the extra weight of a heavy FLGR.
