I don't see a crack. It just looks a well worn guiderod to me. The sc is different, I'm sure the 45 guys will chime in.

Have you fired the gun yet?

The pic is too small to see a crack if there is one... does it appear to be a deep crack, a surface crack, or just an imperfection?

I bought an ATI Titan (used), and really like the gun. Unfortunately, my Titan, like others I've read about, suffered from a few issues.

Take better pics and send them to SA, if they think it's a problem, they will fix it for ya.
Just looked at my Compact, if you're talking about the circle it's normal. I'll try and put a pic up.
