Hoffy, the front end of the guide rod stops short of contacting the breech by about the thickness of a business card on mine.......................chim

So what do we need to do to get this made sticky? Who do we ask?

I will try the dental pick idea. I cannot get the plastic part with the guiderod out of my slide. I've pretty much given up. I'll see if I can't pick up a dental pic somewhere.

I bent my guide rod trying to pull the plastic part out the first time. It tough, good luck!

Luckily, it will go in and out easier the second time.

I think mine is slightly bent, but it still works. I assume that is no big deal, right?

If I get mine out, I can bend it back in place.

When the gun is assembled, and the slide is open, mine bends down slightly.

Is that how it is supposed to be or did I bend mine too much?

Bend it back as straight as you can get it. When I went through this, other people on this forum told me that it was no big deal...but be alert and replace it if you get failures.
However, I ordered a new one through Numrich and just replaced it, anyway.

I looked at their sight - but it looks like U must order the separate pieces to the guide rod. Is there a way to order the whole assembly with that polymer piece it sits in? I don't know how to take the whole thing apart.

Does browning sell that entire guiderod assembly?

Numrich sells an "assembly" but it is for an older model (I couldn't find one that matched up with my Contour).

Taking the assembly apart and putting it back together is really a snap (if I can do it...you can do it...believe me).

The whole key is the tiny lock coller on the one end of the guide rod. Work that off while depressing the spring to take the pressure off it. Make sure to keep it in a safe place. After that, it practically falls apart.

So, U just ordered the guide rod itself. Then took the stuff apart and put it all on the new rod?

Well, until I manage to get the whole assembly out of the rod, it's hard for me to know how it is to disassemble. I'm trying to get my wife to get an old dental pic from work so I can finally take it out.

That is what I did, though I probably could have gotten by without the new rod...I didn't want to take the chance. I also ordered a new one of those tiny little lock collers and a few other things that were cheap and I thought I might need later.

After I got through that episode (two weeks ago), what I now do to disassemble is make sure the guide rod only sticks out of the plastic part about 1/2 inch or less, catch it on the edge of a coffee table and put downpressure on the receiver. I have a pad down so I don't ding the coffee table. That gets the rod out pretty well unbent. The first time I tried to lift up on the rod when it was 1.5 inches exposed and that is what got me into trouble.

I'm going to try 22574. eta: nm, they wanted $5.00 for violating the $15.00 minimum order policy. So a $2.70 pick will cost $15 and change to ship!

If it's giving you a hard time, maybe you're trying to get too much of it at one time. It needs to be lifted at both ends. Wiggle the pick under the guide towards the front. Stop. Wiggle it in a bit in the back. Stop. Keep trying to lift just a teensy bit at a time and alternate so it comes up straight.

When you finally get it out, clean the sides of the plastic insert a bit with really fine WOD sandpaper..................chim

I'll try again tomorrow. The pick keeps sliding out if I pull too hard. Got my finger with it already. I'm done for today :P

You know how the user's manual states that "further disassembly should only be performed by a professional gunsmith"? Well, in retrospective that was a great advice. The disassembly was easy, re-assembly - not so.

Well, I'll see if I can finish this up. Getting the gun to actually work too, is another thing. I've had easier time putting together a 23mm Soviet ZU-23 gun.

edit:

Does it matter, whether I install the sear or sear spring first?
