I noticed that my guide rod bends a little when I put it back after cleaning. I first noticed this when I tried to put the guide rod assembly back in after a thourough cleaning and was dismayed to see that the buffer area kinda bends do to pressing against the barrel groove. Does it sit bent like this when the slide is attached to the frame? I wouldnt think so but if it does, then this may be a problem in the future.

I know they have metal guide rods but my question isnt about metal guide rods. My question is wheter or not the guide rod bending is normal. And if it is, does it stay that way while attached to the slide.

Normal...

The guide rod sits against the frame when you put the slide back on.

Nothing to worry about except enjoying your pistola!

P.S. Walther uses the polymer guide rod to prove that it is just as effective and durable as a metal one

The rod is there just to make it easy to install the spring while reassembeling the gun. When installed the rod isn't even under any load (which is why it bends. It can't jam on anything and it dosen't do anything while in the gun.
