    Brownells has a guide rod catalogued for the 380Govt.
    Since Scott, McDougall closed there's not many accessories available.

    >>I checked Brownells online and could only find steel guide rods for the Mustang and Pony. Could you please provide me with a link to the steel rod for the Government model? Thanks...!...TW<<

    Re: Parts for Colt Government .380...

    This is from Catalog #57 hard copy (2004-2005). I think it's the latest one? pg.106
    "Scott McDougal Colt .380 Govt Guide Rod & Spring Plug" part no. 790-107-100 $39.50
    There's also a seperate one listed for the Mustang and Pony on the same page.
    Hope that helps.

    >>Thanks very much for checking that out for me. I'll check tomorrow on that...just hope Brownells has back stock of this part because Mac Scott told me today he is no longer making this item - hasn't been since his partner died...although he does have a small supply of guide rods and springs for the Mustang and Pony. **See e-mail below...

    Mr. Walsh..

    My former company, Scott, McDougall & Associates, used to manufacture guide
    rods and plugs for the Colt Govt. .380 pistol. Unfortunately, remaining
    stocks of these parts were deplenished a couple of years ago, with
    absolutely none remaining. The death last year of my business partner, Doug
    McDougall, pretty much sealed this guide rod's fate as far as any further
    manufacture by me.

    I've fielded numerous inquiries regarding these rods in the recent past but,
    alas, not enough to justify gearing up to produce such an item for a pistol
    no longer being manufactured. I do have a small supply of plain guide rods
    for the Mustang/Pony, but they're not compatible with the Govt. .380. I know
    of no other source for this custom part.

    Sorry to be the bearer of sad tidings.

    Best regards,

    ----Mac

    I have two leads on stainless guide rods for our 380 government pistols. As of now, I am writing to two individuals - one of which is Glen Linscheid of partsproduction.com. Glen is planning to produce a prototype, test it, and report back to me on how it functioned before making them available to buy by the public. When I get more information about the part's availability, and price of each unit, I'll post them to this thread. I'll also include the link to the purchasing page. In the meantime, if anyone wanted to contact Glen directly, here's his email address: partsproduction@centurylink.net.... Website: New Page 1

    I believe that the AMT Back Up 380 ACP Recoil Spring Guide is very close match. You might want to try and call High Standard @ 713-462-4200 and check out the dimensions.- Alan Aronstein
