    I just bought a Loaded and want to get rid of the two piece guide rod that takes an allen. What is the best way to do this? I want a stainless rod, that I won't have to use tools with.

    Just replace it with a single-piece FLGR. I find the FLGR to be more of a pain for field stripping and have long-preferred the standard GI rod/spring/bushing, personally - which is also an easy switch-out. They're relatively cheap to buy and see if you find any difference/preference...Brown and Baer use the standard, IIRC; Wilson can go either way, but I'm guessing...Enjoy the new pistol!

    Go with a GI setup. Its the best easiest solution. Can choose from 10-8/ed brown/Wilson parts. Etc
