Nate Posted March 19, 2005 Share Posted March 19, 2005 I was at the range yesterday and my heavy guide rod broke off right at the head as I was shooting groups to get warmed up. I turn my head phones off when I work alone and did not notice the sound of the gun cycling change. As I finished my session I took off my head phones and cycled my gun to dry fire a couple of groups and I could tell that I had a problem. I took it apart and sure enough no guide rod. I picked up all my brass and finally found the guide rod back where I started shooting groups at 50 yards. Not a big deal except that I had the best practice session ever, fast transitions and pairs you could cover with one piece of tape. Maybe it is time to try a light guide rod. Don't know why it broke. It was properly fitted and there was no metal to metal contact. It did have 50K or so on it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
