Two piece guide rod- ultra carry

Recently purchased a Kimber ultra carry and have put 200 rounds through with one failure to eject. Very accurate pistol. I found out the hard way that there is a two pice guide rod as I came home to clean today and saw the end missing. Quick trip back to the Range and I found it. I used some blue lock tight and screwed it back in. Hopefully this will do the trick in keeping it from being dislodged.

Yep, mine did the same thing, but it took about 1,600 rounds. I'm thinking it was my fault because I replace the recoil springs and didn't put the loctite on it before reassembly. So far so good after using the loctite

It sounds like you got lucky, you were able to find the missing half. I like episodes that because they are easily corrected and never forgotten.
