I also wanted a barrel support plug for my Detonics. So cut down a Wilson full size flat wire spring plug and welded a ring on it for a hat style plug. So lots of ways to get what you want.

Nod - Jerry Hammond was responsible for the supported plug on that pistol. I failed to specify on my order and that was his suggestion. Grateful for his recommendation.

Follow up. As it happened, I had the parts from 2 years ago, including the same plug.

Heres the problem I ran into with my pistol, which I remembered after I tried to install them.

The FLGR/FWRS end up at too steep and angle and long, wonít clear the barrel link and be parallel enough to go through the hole in the plug..;(

Iím including some pics. Am I missing something? At any rate, Iíll keep it the way it is. I set out to improve the aesthetics and make field stripping and cleaning easier, but is a no go.

For a 5" down to a 4" you must use a wire through the hole with the spring and plug installed. I do not see the hole in your Wilson rod, but thought it came drilled. Here's a picture of the Wilson rod, from the website. And then one of the ones I made, which have to be on the rod with the spring and plug to install. Easy to install when you use the wire.

My guide rod does have the hole, just wasnít visible in the pic I posted.
So compress rod/spring and plug as a unit and it installs? I gave a half hearted try and stopped due to time.
Thanks for the response.

Thank you Log man. Once I bent the all needed paper clip to retain plug/spring/rod, it dropped right in... Earlier i had talked to Wilson for their input as well.
