    Default Unscientific Survey - CW45 Guide Rod

    I wanted to get an idea from others that own the CW45 which type of guide rod came stock on their firearm. As mentioned in another thread my guide rod is cut with no bevel at the end and it has been a source of pain getting the spring/guide rod assembly in place after take down. Please sound off with the type of guide rod that came with your firearm.

    chuck it up in a drill and with a flat file, bevel it. might take 2 minutes..

    Another +1 on beveling it yourself. I would make a jig that allows me to bevel at 45* just to make it look factory if I was going to do it. just cut a piece of 2x4 and nail it to a piece of wood at a 45* angle and wala.. easy as that.

    jocko, TussonMTB and JCP281...

    Did any of your CW45's come stock with a beveled guide rod?

    I'm just trying to get an idea on the common experience of other CW45 owners and whether their firearm came with a guide rod that had the bevel.

    Ummmm, On the bottom pic, It sure looks beveled to me... poorly focused and bad lighting aside.

    If you want to add more bevel just do it like suggested above.

    Here is a better picture but I can assure you the rod is cut square and there is no bevel....

    Did your CW45 come with a beveled guide rod?

    2edgesword,
    As you know, my CW45 has a bevel on it's guide rod. FWIW, the guide rod in my CW9 has a bevel as well.
    I don't know if you have seen this thread on the P380 forum, but it's kind of germane to this thread:

    Thanks folks.

    I will be doing some light filing this evening. It seems that what appears to be 1 ~ 2mm's worth of beveling on some of the rods pictured is the difference between an easy insertion of the guide rod versus the torture and abuse of my thumb.

    Chuck in in a drill or drill press and go to it. Makes a cheap lath for non critical stuff.
    On the internet, the number of posts do not correlate to actual knowledge.
    The notch is supposed to be there as well as the bulge at the front of the frame!

    Five minutes with a dremel and the problem is solved. Added just enough of a bevel that the guide rod easily starts through the hole and allows the other end to clear the breech end of the barrel. So what took minutes of fidgeting now takes two seconds.
