Happened to pull the striker assembly out of my PPS M2 just because I had never done it before and wanted to learn more about how the gun operates and noticed a crack in what I believe is called the striker guide. The small plastic shroud that encompasses the rear of the striker.
I dry fired this gun a lot when I first got it because it was the gun that I learned shooting technique with, but I rarely used dummy rounds when doing so and I believe that may have led to this issue, but I'd like to know what everyone else thinks.
I want to replace the guide, or even the whole assembly, but I don't want to send the gun in as it is my carry gun, so I will try to order the part. Out of curiosity, what would happen if the end were to break off? Am I right in thinking that dry firing is the likely culprit? If the striker were to land on a live round every time, would it even make contact with the end of the guide?
