Will this work in 5" 2.0?  I notice Carver lists an ISMI rod working for 1.0/2.0, but lists the wolff rod as only working in the 1.0 (I think)  - so kinda confused.

 

I'm actually local to Carver so was going to run by next week, but would prefer the Tungsten one which I don't see on Carver's site.

The carver one is heavier (2.5 oz vs 1.622 for the glock) and designed for the m&p:

Wish I had seen this before I ordered from the glockstore, last time I looked Carver custom had been out of stock for a while.

I’m considering boring out the guide rod hole in the slide to allow for a larger uncaptured tungsten guide and use a different spring. I’d have to attach an end plate or turn the diameter to allow for a retention on the slide lock side. If I recall correctly, the larger diameter in the slide is 7/16”. However I’m not sure if it is going to get to the point of having too heavy of a guide rod and making it nose heavy or too heavy in general.

Well despite the general craziness the world is going through right now, the extend glock guide rod came in and I ran about 200 rounds throught it in my CO M&P 2.0 5" and it worked great.  Recoil felt a little different and I feel like I was able to track the dot better.  Deffinitely need more time with it.  My only complant is that it is a little too long and you can see about an 1/8th of the guide rod when the gun is in battery, however, this does not seem to affect anything besides the look of the gun.  Also I decided to go with a 15# flat spring.

Got my carver tungsten guide rod and it is thicker than the standard guide rod, and so takes a different spring as you suggest (wolff vs the flat wire). Also came with a coupon code for 10% off carver products: BOBBY10.
