Ran 850+ rounds with the new guide rod. Other than normal bulk ammo issues, gun performed well.

Might be the result of not using the plastic washer...After stripping for cleaning, noticed the new guide rod top base flared out a bit as if it were hit with a hammer. And also, the barrel now has to be forced out of the slide. It use to drop free.
