    New member first post. I just bought one to go with the Wolf 13# springs. I will be testing this combo out this week at the range. Hope to give a good range report.

    I have had the same problem, I have only taken the slide off once since putting the new guide rod on. Once I put it back together again, I racked the slide numerous times, and it seems fine, it appears to only happen when you remove the slide. Let me know if you have any problems when you shoot it next. Be interesting to see if anyone else had any problems.

    Have the BT-Guiderod & Wolff #13 springs in my LCP, never a problem. I would make sure that when placing the head of the guiderod into the half-moon slot, that it fits pretty tight. And, did the original guiderod do the same thing? Not sure what to tell you at this point! Yogi

    The notch in the barrel is just to hold the rod long enough to get ELSIE back together.
    Once the gun is together the rod rest on the bigger notch on the frame.
    B T put A bigger chauffeur on the rod so it would not batter. Hope this helps you.

    That is interesting to me. I would think the BT would stay in place also. Rich know's his stuff & it sounds like you are satisfied with his answer. Neither my stock or BT Guiderods ever fall when I take my slide off to clean the LCP. Yogi
