It is my understanding that if a gun comes with a stainless guide rod, then it is ok to have a stainless guide rod... take the M&P for instance. So if you can include a stainless guide rod and thusly make it legal, that would be a HUGE plus.

Exclusions for all divisions:
B. Add-on weights for a competitive advantage (this includes,
but is not limited to, weighted magazines, tungsten guide rods,
brass magazine wells, weighted grips).
SSP Excluded Modifications:
4. Guide rods made of a material different from the factory part
it replaces
If you are making 2,000 pistols, then you are the factory. Stainless steel is no heavier than common steel, which is typically allowed in IDPA (ESP, and CDP, where SSP only says material different from the factory part).

Also, your run of 2000 complete pistols should make it ok for USPSA Production as well!!
