    Bent guide rod

    Greetings from Canada. I've owned an ACR for about three years now and never fired it because it came with a bent recoil guide rod. I suppose this point is moot now that I won't be able to shoot it legally anyway (assault rifles were banned a few days ago), but I'm hoping I can find a solution anyway. The vendor who sold it to me never came through and Bushmaster has never replied to my emails, based on all this, I doubt I'll ever be able to buy a replacement. I'm a fluid power technician so I have a lot of experience with machines, and I'm thinking of trying to straighten it.

    Has anyone else run into this problem? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I found a company called “Gravel Agency”. They only sell to Canadian buyers. Check them out, I believe they have a guide rod and all kinds of other parts. Check em out or hit up Big_dog2003. I’m sorry you’ve had to wait so long. Good luck brotha

    Thanks for the suggestion, I can't find the rod on their site though.

    It’s probably not worth bothering since you guys elected that tool, Justin Trudeau. So he could ban you from owning the rifle! Not trying to be rude... That was the kindest thing that I could say about your Prime Minister!!!
