Put the stock plastic one back in.

This!. Don't try and fix what is not broken. If it needed an titanium guide rod to function, it would come with one. I don't know of any issues with the stock guide rod. Plus if something happens to it, you get a new one free.

I think I'm the only guy ever, who has had the stock plastic guide rod break on him.

(It broke as I pulled it from the slide, not during firing. Yes I did it correctly, Yes I have the armorer's manual.).

I replaced it with a titanium one and its run flawlessly ever since. I must have 2000 rounds on the Ti rod now and not a hiccup.

I totally agree with the "don't fix what ain't broke" mentality, but my experience with the Ti rod has been superb.

Common engine spray paint?

I don't use titanium guide rods, but do use steel guide rods. I have had a guide rod break in a G30. Went to the Wolff steel guide rods and that fixed that. I also use steel guide rods in my full-sized Glocks, primarily for the ease of changing recoil springs when I'm changing calibers or loads.

Glock's engineers don't have the same priorities in designing for mass production that I do as an informed consumer.

I would try this. If it was steel I'd maybe try to cold blue the end, but I don't think that would work with titainium.

I understand stock.
I understand steel.
I understand tungsten.

I don't understand titanium.

Ditto! Why in the world would you want a titanium guide rod?

Next time buy a Jager rod, they come hard coated in black, problem solved.
