Tungsten?

Post by uppityvug » Tue Jul 30, 2019 8:57 am

Just wondering why Tungsten is not used more over Stainless with the higher end reputable Watches? I notice it's popular with the conveyor belt watch companies. The hardness and the superb polish seems a great marriage.

I have a Lum-Tec M-20 watch made out of Tungsten Carbide. I think it's a great watch. Very scratch proof. As for shattering easily, I spoke with the maker once, and he stated that you could possibly break one of the lugs off if you used a hammer on it, but other than that, it was extremely durable . Also you would have to almost use a belt sander to mark it. So far it looks brand new. I have photos of it on a carbon fiber strap, but I have since put it on it's Tungsten bracelet. I don't have any photos of that. It is a little heavier than a lot of watches, but nothing that's distracting. Feels good on the wrist I think.

I have Lone Wolf guide rods and springs in all my Glocks and they work flawlessly. I've never liked the idea of a plastic guide rod even if they very seldom break. But what can go wrong will go wrong and a tungsten guide rod will never break. More Information here

I have a Glock 20 Gen 3 that I have had for several years. The only stoppages I have had were right after putting in a heavy steel guide rod. I switched back and no problems since. I could feel no difference in muzzle flip, but 10mm flips some no matter what. That was me with my experience. Your experience could be different.

The OEM guide rod literally lasts tens of thousands of rounds with no problems. Also, should it break, the gun will still function. As far as recoil, a couple of ounces more weight in the front of the gun will have a negligible effect on it. Placebo effect is strong with this mod.
