Full Length Guide Rods

What are the benfits of a full length guide rod in a 1911 style pistol, 4" or 5" barrel? Looking at the design, from a mechanical point of view, it seems the guide rod will help control the spring during compression or axial stability. But then, Mr. Browning did not design the pistol that way.

Since so many are interested in this topic, and many newbies are unaware of the previous discussion of it, why not add a topic devoted just to FLGR's? That way, it's easy to find for those who wish to discuss it.
