I was wondering...Do ismi flat glock recoil springs fit glockstore heavy tungsten guide rod? I would think that I could measure a ss noncaptured guide rods diameter and the heavy tungsten guide rod, but I don't have a measurement device capable of measuring it.

The IMSA flat spring did NOT fit the non captured guide rod that came with my Glock 20 slide. I had to buy their guide rod. Harbor Freight makes a nice digital caliper that will get the job done. It will set you back less than a tungsten guide rod.

Opinion: Tungsten belongs in circular saw teeth not guide rods.

True story. At HF, you used to be able to open packages and look at the item. Now they seal them up and you can't touch and feel the item. I would open the caliper box, run it back and forth a few times. Some where smooth, some sucked. Then I would close the jaws, zero it, and run it back and forth. Some would not zero, those went back in the box. It would take a few to get one that was both smooth and returned to zero repeatedly. It's been many years since I last bought one there but the ones I selected this way still work and check with gage pins.

The only caveat I have with the HF calipers is they tend to consume batteries so I remove when not in use, install when I need to use. And while I thought the "fractional" display was silly at first, it has come in handy explaining decimal inches to people...
