2011 turned into a single shot

Recommended Posts

Dawson Tool-less guide rod broke during my 2nd stage of Area 2 yesterday. It locked the recoil spring into the compressed position so of course, the slide would not return. Thankfully it happened on the very last target and I only needed to get off two shots. It took a second to figure out what was going on and my HF took a serious beating. The only silver lining is that another shooter had a spare guide rod and my gun was up and running for the next stage. My first time ever to have a gun go down during a match and of course it would have to happen during an Area match..lol  Guess what will be in my spare parts kit from now on?

Thanks, I've been thinking about getting one of those, you just gave me a good reason to keep the old system. I can continue to carry a paper clip in my tool kit. ?

Exactly the same thing happened to me at a local recently.  Locked up, cost me the stage.  Paper clips from now on.  I'll sell the other two to somebody who likes 'em.

I'm glad I haven't spent the money on the tooless guide rod yet. This is at least the 3rd time I've heard of that happening. 

Paper clips for the win!
