Shield 9, light ammo, 'stainless steel guide rod'
Shooting 115gr white box. The shield had never failed at the range in a few hundred rounds mucking with it; but did an outdoor class and got 2 FTEs (shell still horizontal I cleared too fast to really navel gaze). Nothing spectacular about when they happened.
I'm guessing this gun is sprung to handle heavy ammo.
Guessing this pulls off easier racking
Smith and Wesson Shield Stainless Steel Guide Rod Assembly - Stainless Steel Guide Rods
By basically being lighter.
I don't think my stock shield guide rod/spring is damaged (wish I could get a spare. .. )
Any thoughts on
1. Using the SS guide rod/lighter one for white box 115gr (edited to say 115, 125 was misprint)
2. Using the SS guide rod for defense ammo too for reliability (assuming it doesn't hurt feeding too much)
BTW - any insight on the force curve of the dual-spring setup, whether it's applying extra at start, end, or throughout travel, could be interesting.
