Well yesterday I ran aboout 200 rounds through my new Custom Eclipse. Accuracy is phenominal! Function was flawless. Hell, the thing will even feed spent brass.

My question is about the guide rod. When I disassembled it for cleaning, I noticed some scoring around the guide rod. It is near the base, where the spring would be compressed. The scoring, more like "rings" where the coils of the recoil spring are being pressed against it during compression.

I have never had a 1911 style pistol with a full length guide rod. Is this kind of scoring normal?

Thanks,

Mike

The scoring is probably from a burr or a sharp point on the recoil spring. File it off or smooth out the end of the spring.

Make sure you installed the recoil spring properly. Flat, rounder side in first...
