    The guide rod in the sig pro is polymer. I was looking into finding some type of metal replacement rod, and found a recoil reducer that would in effect give me a metal recoil rod. Are these things bullshit? Will it actually help with recoil? I'm going to get one anyway just to replace the rod, but it'd be cool if it actually helped with recoil as well.

    Here's a link http://www.sprinco.com/recoil.html

    Is there anything else I should look into upgrading? I'm also getting a .357 sig and 9mm conversion barrel.

    No one?

    Well, I read some other stuff about em and a few people seem to think they work, so I went ahead and ordered one. I guess I'll let you guys know how it goes.

    Now I want to work on the DA trigger.

    I never understood why people changed the recoil rods.. Its only job is to keep the spring from deforming. It doesnt wear and doesnt help anything by changing it.

    :dunno: was reading about how a poly recoil rod is bad. Never actually had problems with one. I also read how people replace them because they're heavier and help with muzzle flip. If it also reduces wear on the gun, it sounds like 3 good reasons to get one.

    do you own this pistol and have you shot it before deciding to mess with the internals?

    Frontal weight is all i can agree on.. Personally I would say it needs to be made of mercury then

    Yup. Only about 500 rounds through it though (couple months). I actually don't have a problem with recoil, but I was bored so I thought I would look around for common upgrades.

    Why are you worried about polymer but bought a SigPro? Thats like saying you hate polymer and buying a Glock. Just save the money for the strip club or something worthwhile

    Better yet spend the money on range ammo

    I don't have a problem shooting the gun.
    I don't hate polymer. I read that it was a weak point of the pistol and that it is a good spot to upgrade.
    I just bought 1000 rounds of ammo for the range.

    You bought a sig which is good, but you bought a sig pro which is bad. Next time buy a P-Series.
