Possible Charger issue....

For the experts......The guide rod that you see in chamber when bolt is locked to the rear has a bad spot close to the end....a very obvious groove worn into it....normal or an issue ?

I would replace it but check the rest of the internals for damage as well. Looks like you may have had premature ignition of a round, have you notices any tiny pieces of brass in the chamber?

That's just how good their CS is. They want us happy. It doesn't mean there's an "issue."

Obviously there is an issue....If this was abnormal damage I would guess they would want to get it back so they could figure out why it happened ??
