Just got home with the LCP MAX. To the range in the morning. I am new to this forum. I joined to learn about her. I have read some of the posts and got answers to some questions. A couple more- I have read that the guide rod on LCP is plastic but mine is steel and on another forum every one says they are steel also. Was this a thing? Did Ruger change it? Also I read that the head of the take down pin can break off. It does look flimsy and might pop off if you go at it too hard with the screw driver. I will be reloading for her. More latter. Thanks.
