Pick up a Stainless Steel guide rod from GSGpro.com for $10 +shipping. The original is plastic and there are reports of them snapping during blowback. I have around 2500 rounds through mine and it has been flawless. Watch the slide wear it seems to start at the catch button and debris from this can get into the slide rails and cause problems. I pull my slide back and then depress the catch button and gently slide it forward which takes more time but I have no signs of wear at this joint. The catch button is steel and the slide is aluminum so the slide gets beat up first. Watch for this wear to appear I've heard Ruger is really good about replacing the slides when damaged like this.
