And I only shoot with two other people than own them. Two broken guide rods, one busted barrel bushing. In each case suspect pieces simply broke in two.

I'm not going to say it's a terrible gun, and a lot of people seem to be happy with theirs. But my experience hasn't been positive.

I'll probably keep mine for the time being. But if I had it to do over again, I'd buy a Ruger or Browning target rimfire.
I had heard about the guide rods I got a metal one from I have had good experiences with browning as well.

I had concerns about the GSG because of it's all Zinc Alloy construction, same with the Sig and Colt, althought the Colt is made by Walther and not GSG. I opted to go with the Browning 1911 .22 A1 because it is made of T6 7075 aircraft grade aluminum. I also like the feel of it. I had a Mosquito as well as a P22 and sold them both for the Browning. The Browning costs almost twice as much as the GSG, but I'll bet it lasts a life time. Plus, it breaks down EXACTLY like a standard 1911. Great training weapon for 1911 newbies.

I have GSG with 1500 rounds through with no problems.

Mine is showing lits of wear (scraping) under slide where it is rubbing on frame.

The GSG 1911 .22 is a great handgun. They do have a problem with the guide rods and spring. The rod guide breaks it seems around 1,000 shots. I ordered the GSG/SIG Rod Guide and spring from CW Accessories of Lancaster, Ohio. This is a top quality up grade and will last for ever. The service from CW is way above average. They cost $25.00.
