Our striker guide (part 25 in the Hellcat slide parts diagram) fits the Hellcat and Hellcat PRO. It is precision machined and polished in stainless steel.
The plastic factory part and even aluminum aftermarket parts are easily galled, gouged or scratched by the tools used to depress them and remove the slide plate. The stainless support sleeve isn’t susceptible to being damaged.

Stainless Steel Striker Guide
The factory plastic striker guide was binding on the striker shaft which made racking the slide even more difficult than normal so I ordered and installed the Lakeline guide. A little bit of fine fitting was needed but now the guide slides smoothly on the striker shaft and racking the slide is a little easier. My next project will be to install a Lakeline extended slide release.
I bought this to replace a damaged plastic striker guide on my hellcat pro. Initially I was skeptical, but man to my surprise this thing worked flawlessly. I just made sure to add a little gun grease on a cleaner sheet and apply it to the unit before install. No heavy coating, just lightly rubbing it in and around the unit, where the spring will travel. Following that I ran several hundreds of rounds with it installed with no jams or issues.
