For Gen 1-3 Installation:
Insert the guide rod as a non-captured guide rod installation. Place slide onto the frame in the locked back position. We recommend using Loctite at this time on the extension’s threads. Thread the extension on the guide rod and allow Loctite to dry fully before shooting according to manufacturers’ instructions.
For Gen 4 Installation:
Place the ISMI spring over the guide rod, and compress the ISMI spring. Place the LWD–GR4Adapter, then Loctite threads of guide rod extension and thread onto guide rod. Place in the slide. Allow Loctite to dry completely according to manufactures instructions before shooting.
