Comparing two different guns isn't really useful. In case cited above, we don't know that the accuracy difference between the two guns is due to the guide rod.
But, if you'd do the same Ransom Rest tests using both a standard guide rod and FLGR in the same gun
, we might learn something meaningful about the value of a FLGR in the real world.
