I didn't need the CW guide rod, but I just got it anyways since it was cheap and for reassurance.

After 2400-ish rounds through my GSG, you can see no wear marks and no bending of the guide rod at all. It's a very solid piece, so I have no idea why ATI decided to change to the new 'X' style guide rods.

Thanks fir the pics Dave! (Iíve been wondering where you disappeared to... BTW, what ever happened to the SSE barre you used for your GSG???)

Thanks for the replies guys. I figured it was the ammo. Hopefully I will make it up to the range again soon.
