Default CW Accessories for the GSG 1911-22

For those of you who have used the CW Accessories, or the base plate mod on the magazine, or any other accessories, for your 1911-22, would you post your impressions and experiences. I have an itch to tweak the used one I bought. I bought the pistol cheap last year and I'm satisfied with the way it works, but ...

I insalled the CWA
Performance Enhancement System
Anodized Aluminum Base Pads (the mags will hold 11 rounds)
Guide rod and Recoil Spring
The gun is way better than it was stock.
I've put about 20,000 rounds through it, it still shoots great.

I also intalled the DP front sight

I had one of these a while back. The guide rod was well worth the $$. No brainer . ..

My impressions

I’d love to hear from someone that did the “performance package” that removes the need for the barrel screw and the parts that come with that package. Something tells me I could run without the screw as is and be fine...

I just bought a new one. I've read/seen mostly good things about this pistol. I can't wait to "improve" it...make it fit and run the way I like it. It'll sure be nice and cheaper to plink with it instead of my SA Loaded LW. I can hardly wait to shoot it!
I'd rather have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

I installed the performance package and guide rod and had a few problems, ftf,fte,and failure to fire. Called Chet and got some very good advice about the product and changed the guide rod spring (may have put in wrong spring to begin with dog was messing with me that day got distracted). Anyway changed spring and cycles well now but now have an issue with lite strikes. May have a dirty firing pin channel?? Any ideas???? Also when you go to the performance package be prepared to use mini mags.

I just got a GSG. Where do I get the guide rod and spring?

Edit.... Nevermind I found it.
