    My guide rod is wearing a little different than I am used to... the end of the rod that rests into the barrel is beginning to feel rough as if it has been roughed up with a file. The barrel detent shows no sign of wear but the metal on the rod is almost curling if that makes any sense... is this normal?

    That's normal wear and tear, it will eventually stop after it gets to a certain point. It's nothing to worry about, my mod 2 did the same thing when I started shooting it.

    It's likely coming from the takedown lever.
