None, I hear it improves muzzle flip simply wish to know how true that is, or just hear what people have to say if its a waste of money than I mind aswell invest towards the PRP trigger upgrade.

I think its more of one of those things you add with other mods.

If you just add the guide rod, maybe you can tell but you have to really look for the difference. But if you combined the guide rod with a lighter spring for light hand loads(do not use a light spring unless you are doing some low power hand loads) THEN it may make a more noticeable difference.

Just buy a SS guide rod. Works better-heavier I think- cheaper.
tungsten is much heavier than stainless steel. It takes heat a lot better and it's more expensive. I've never switched out to a heavier guide rod, but I can say that the extra weight of a light on the end of the gun does make a difference in muzzle rise.
