At a glance:

  • Captured spring makes installation easy
  • Makes cleaning your firearm simple
  • Improves reliability of slide alignment, improving accuracy


The TANDEMKROSS "Sentinel" Stainless Steel Captured Spring Guide Rod for Walther® P22® is an excellent upgrade for your Walther® pistol. The Walther® factory spring is extra long and extends past the spring guide rod. This design requires a special tool to reinstall and makes cleaning your P22 a challenge. The TANDEMKROSS stainless steel guide rod for the Walther® P22 features a “captured” spring, doing away with the need for any special equipment and making your firearm maintenance simple.


Because the spring is “captured,” the TANDEMKROSS “Sentinel” Spring Rod also returns the P22 slide to the same position every time, reducing up and down movement of the slide and improving accuracy.


This drop-in part is one of the best P22 accessories that will improve the performance and simplify the maintenance of your Walther® P22.


Also compatible with:

-P22 Q


As with all TANDEMKROSS products the P22 captured spring rod comes with a lifetime guarantee.

    Walther P22 Captured Spring Guide Rod

    Posted by Stan on 5th Sep 2023

    Could never use my P22 due to all the different malfunctions. Received the captured spring guide rod today and went straight to the range. Went through 250+ rounds of mini-mags, Aguila, Winchester, Thunderbolt, and Remington bucket of bullets. Captured spring guide is absolutely the best thing for my P22. Buying another one for my other P22.

    Everything that others have said about the original guide rod are absolutely true. I used to dread putting my P22 back together, but with this superior design from Tandemkross, assembly is as easy as pie. Order it now, you won't be sorry.

    Walther P22 Guide Rod

    Posted by james on 19th Sep 2022

    The captured spring guide rod is AWESOME. It allows me to assemble the Walther P22 in seconds rather the minutes. I strongly recommend to everybody that owns this weapon. It was so frustrating to assemble weapon with the original guide rod and spring I wanted to get rid of it. The captured spring guide rod turns a piece of crap into a functional weapon.

    Very happy with the item, makes reassembly of my P22 a breeze. Very happy with the customer service too, when I enquired about shipping times I received an email very quickly and was happy with how quickly the item arrived considering it was an international order.
