    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?

    It's where it rides against the bottom of the barrel. Normal wear. It's all good.

    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. The most common (it seems) is associated with the recoil spring guide rod, and the way that ATI chose to attach the guide rod back plate to the guide rod (with a screw). ...

    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.
