Neal, I was going
to write you a note this morning, you beat me to the punch!
I finally had a chance to shoot this past weekend, and I was
totally blown away by how smooth the gun felt and the reduction
in the flip up. I am not an every day shooter, but I could
tell an immediate increase in my accuracy and speed. I can't
wait to see what some practice will do for me.
I can not thank you and your wife enough for the time you
spent working on my pistol. It was above and beyond the call,
and despite your comment that it's customer service, I feel
that you went far beyond what any person would reasonably
expect, and I thank you for it.
I will be spreading the word about you and your product, I
have a few Glock friends that will get a few shots out of
my pistol to see the difference it makes.
Thank you again sir!

I finally got your recoil guide tested with the 14 lb. spring,
and I must tell you that I was surprised that there was that
much noticeable reduction in recoil and muzzle flip with that
spring weight. Gun is more controllable and there is less
vibration felt thru the frame when shot is fired. Good job.
I'm curious, when you tried the heavier and standard 17 lb
spring weight was recoil and muzzle flip reduced further or
did it feel the same as the 14 lb spring? Also, how many rounds
before recoil spring needs to be replaced?

Thanks for the rod. I received
it and installed it and fired 250rnds through my g-32 and
it kept getting sweeter and sweeter. It installed simply as
you stated and I want to tell you thanks for a part that works
as you said it would. I am very satisfied and will be contacting
you soon to order one for my fathers duty g-31. Thanks a million
and I will talk to ya soon,
You may not remember me but I live in Barbados and I received
my Dead Bang Recoil reducing System for my Glock 35 in early
November 2007. I was about to sell my Glock 35 to buy a 1911
frame pistol because I shoot IPSC and the recoil was bad,
I found firing shots in rapid succession was useless because
the first shot would be on but the second shot was all over
the place. I came across your website when I was researching
recoil reduction for Glocks. To tell the truth I was just
taking a chance, as I know many products promise plenty but
deliver very little.
I received and installed your recoil reducer rod, which was
petty straightforward by the way. While breaking it in, I
did have a few jams and feed problems, not to mention the
gun was hard to rack, I guess due to the 22 LB Extra Power
Wolff Spring but after firing 200 to 300 rounds, I can now
rack it easy, the Jams and feed problems sorted itself out
within about 100 to 150 rounds.
I shot my first match with the new system in Mid December
after breaking the gun in. This is when I started felling
and seeing the difference.. I have never shot "Snake eyes"
before since owning the gun but in my first match I was surprised
when I got snake eyes on two targets. I find I can double
tap (Rapid Fire) and both my shots are on and close, the nozzle
flip is less and the felt recoil tamer. When I watch videos
of my shoot, my gun hardly moves, I¹ll send you a link to
Youtube when I upload some video.
Actually I am shooting a lot better, I¹m more accurate and
my scores and standing prove it. I used to be middle in my
Class which is C but now I'm anyway from 2nd to 6th and improving.
In as much as I know most 1911 frame guns Shoots well, I have
reconsidered and I¹m going to stick with the Glock for the
time being as it¹s shooting extremely well.
Neal, thanks you were very helpful in the pre sales area,
helping me to make up my mind in deciding to try your Rod.
I am glad I gave it a try, it keeps getting better. If your
R&D come up with even the slightest improvement on the
rod, I¹ll be the first to try it. Thanks again for allowing
my to save $2000.00 by not have to buy a new gun.

Neal – I wanted
to drop you a line regarding the trigger/action work you recently
performed on my Glocks as well as your recoil rods. As a competitive
shooter from the silhouette world I am far more accustomed
to exotic triggers from Dewey, Taylor and Jewel in the 1 to
6oz range and properly balanced handguns that either negate
or minimize muzzle rise. In other words – the exact opposite
of everything a stock Glock is. The Glocks have always been
"fun little guns" for me, but not anything I took
too seriously. With their (comparatively speaking) heavy,
sloppy triggers combined with the pronounced muzzle rise from
a lighter handgun (especially in the 10mm and up) they were
never handguns that I was particularly fond of. After the
installation of your recoil rod, buffer pad, trigger parts
and polishing work I can honestly say that these are now different
guns than they were before. The trigger is far smoother with
less take up and releases cleanly and consistently at the
same weight. The pull is light enough to make proper trigger
control automatic instead of a deliberate effort – without
being too light for a tactical pistol. The critical improvement,
in my opinion, is the consistent and predictable muzzle rise
– or lack thereof. With proper gun control getting back on
target immediately is a non-issue. This greatly enhances the
effectiveness of this handgun in any situation – even with
less experienced shooters. I would not buy another Glock nor
recommend one to anyone without insisting that these modifications
be made before firing the first round. Thanks!

I appreciate your product. It arrived quickly and it installed
with no problems (except with a small hitch on my part. You
can place this testimonial on your website. "This product
is phenomenal. Initially, I could not tell the difference
between the recoil impulse from the stock rod and the dead
bang rod. The difference is on the follow up shots. My groups
were definitely a lot tighter after changing over to the dead
bang guide rod. I actually think this is ideal because the
gun feels exactly the same but is shooting much more accurately
now. I think the package you put together of the guide rod,
Wolff spring and recoil buffer is the total package. Well
worth the money.

I PURCHASED TWO OF THE NEW IMPROVED RECOIL RODS FROM YOU A
COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO. JUST HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO FINALLY TRY
ONE OUT THIS PAST WEEKEND. ALL I CAN SAY ABOUT THIS NEW ROD
IS "WOW" , IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE IN CONTROLLING THE GUN A
LOT EASIER. AT FIRST I WAS HESITANT ABOUT THE PURCHASE. BUT
AFTER TRYING IT OUT ON MY GLOCK 19 , I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO
TRYING IT OUT ON MY GLOCK 23. ALL I CAN SAY IS " SHAME ON
THOSE WHO PASS UP ON GETTING ONE" , IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!!!!
I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS UPGRADE TO ANY GLOCK OWNER!!
-- JOHN B., SC
I am happy that you started a testimonial page because I would
like my story told. My husband and I have been shooting for
years and from our training our handguns were always the same:
same calibers, magazines, etc. This way if there ever was
a problem slides, parts, especially loaded magazines would
be nonexistent. We decided to switch barrels from using our
G23 Glocks with 40 S&W to .357 Sig caliber. My husband
did not have a problem with the conversion. Recoil etc. fell
into place for him but I could not handle the recoil plus
I developed other problems: my secondary sight picture was
nonexistent. The recoil was so bad it actually hurt my hands
to shoot. I thought that I would have to give up the .357
Sig round and return to the 40 S&W. Then we would be like
everyone else no compatibility for our defensive handguns.
Now for the good news. I purchased your recoil rod system
and I am now using the .357 Sig round fluently. Great secondary
sight acquisition, fantastic and fast reset on my shots, and
the pain that I was experiencing is gone. Thank you so much
for producing a product that not only works but has kept our
family a single round use family again.

recoil rod works excellent. My groups are tighter, I mean
all shots are in the 10 and 9 ring during double tabs and
rapid fire. Hardly any felt recoil from my 9mm. You were right
Neal. This is the best recoil rod out there at the moment
and I happen to have them all so I can make that statement.
Thanks for a well made product and I look for to doing business
with you soon. Keep up the good work. Thanks again for the
fine trigger work, recoil rod and just all around good old
-- Paul K., CA
have a reference that is a reference to beat all references.
I purchased the rod and got a trigger job for a Model 32,
.357 Sig. First of all with the way Neal teaches the point
and shoot method relying on the reset trigger I am now able
to fire my Glock equivalent to a full auto. No lie that is
how fast the rounds spit out of my barrel. In fact the proof
of the pudding is when I am at the range everyone wants to
see my Model 18 (full auto version) and when I tell them that
I had my trigger reworked for $58.00 and with a little practice
they can do the same thing they stand there with their mouths
open. The kicker to this is the muzzle movement when I am
shooting. They cannot believe the rock hard straight line
that is maintained. Again I tell and show them the special
rod set up devised by you. Same reaction they stand there
with their mouths open. When
I purchased this gun I purchased it for self defense, Neal
you not only got me there but way beyond. Last kicker, Neal
explained how to use the reset trigger over the telephone
and he told me how to practice it before I had even got to
his range. When I arrived for my first time he smoothed out
the rough edges on me and I have been rolling since.
-- Scott S., SC
Hello, I shot both of the new rods today and they were fantastic.
The recoil reduction was even better than before and the recoil
was less harsh especially in the 23. Thank you again for all
of your kindness and assistance with everything. You guys
are great! Let me know how the FBI testing is going.
