Well, guys I have been poking around about the factory plastic guide rod that comes with my 9c. Though in the big picture, I am a 'aint broke, dont fix it' guy, I also believe in preventative medicine and upgrades when necessary. I find a plastic guide rod like a skydiver using cheap rope (not smart)... When I pull that trigger, I expect perfection and a $30 upgrade is just fine. With that in mind, I have been poking around the forum about a replacement and hope to find a steel one. I found several links that led me to 'no where land'. Any current sellers of said item out there? And, the one that showed as an active seller, Gray Guns, shows just the rod and out of stock. Do we, as the user need to rob the old spring and rebuild that rod ourselves? Any insight is appreciated.

This is the response I received from Grayguns.com when I inquired about the availability of their steel guide rod for the P250C.

"Yes it will! Our website is hashed up right now and being fixed. it will show corrected availability for all our rods ASAP. The 250C rods will be in soon as well. I apologize for the wait! -Bruce"


Hope this info help.

Does the new guide rod come with a spring to fit it or do you have to reuse the flat spring that comes on the stock plastic one?
When they come for my 6 shooter, they had better bring seven men.

I think the factory spring is reused, but I have sent an email to them to find out for sure. I will post when I receive a reply.

I did a little searching and it looks like you use your stock flat spring.
I kind of like the double wound wire spring on my .40, I guess I'm just picking nits.Huh

Partsfreak, you are correct. Grayguns confirmed that you would reuse the factory spring. Hopefully their site will be updated soon and we can get them ordered. If anyone knows about any others that are available, please let us know.

I just got off the phone with a rep from sig today. I had to order another guide for my p250c (new version) the rep is sending me a guide from a p229. He said it's the same one but instead of plastic, its metal and obviously stronger. I too did some searching on the internet and could not find anything except from greyguns. Im going witht the factory sig one. Hope this helps

Let us know how the p229 guide rod works out for you. Does it use the same spring? It would be nice to have another option. Thanks.

I finally got both my new guide spring and guide rod. They both went in easily and work great! The part numbers are 1201196 for the guide rod and 34224782 for the spring. Remember the rod is now metal and the spring is stronger so the recoil is slightly less. Either way I'm glad to be up and shooting again.

I saw this forum while I was looking for my replacement guide rod for my P250. I called Gray and they said they won't have any of their guide rods for another two months or so but I called Sig Customer Service (which I've always had good luck with) and they are sending me the P229 guide and spring for nothing. Apparently thats what they are sending out for any one who needs a replacement. I guess they've had enough people having issues that they are just going with the steel guides from now on, which they should have done anyway.

Could this also hold true on older P250C models? Will the P229 metal guide rod be use as replacement for the P250C older models?

Thanks!

I would assume. I have the newer Compact version and haven't had any experience with the older compact but I don't see why it wouldn't work as well on the older 250C.

ok.. So we'll be using the P229 metal guide rod and spring? We won't be using the P250C spring?

Sorry for having lots of questions. I want to change my guide rod. Though it aint broken.. but I want to be prepared.. I hate having an idle gun especially my P250C. I love this gun and want this functioning 100% of the time.

I have a p250C and the guide rod broke when I first took it apart to degrease and clean it. I called sig customer service and they sent out a new 229 rod & spring. It fit better than the original. Its nice & tight! Works great!

Just received from Sig today. 3.8.13

Item# 1201196 Recoil spring guide. 228,229,250c-9/40/357, metal

Item# 1300623 Recoil spring. 9.compact.


Springs and guides came in two separate packages and this is the precise description as noted on packaging.Nice upgrade, less recoil, better aim.Should have got these free.Cost me around $70.
Love these pistols. These are hall of famers. Came in second at shooting comp., out of 14. Only one there with a Sig p250-c.
I also changed my front sights from 6 to 8 a few months ago for major improvement.
