I haven't seen this reported before; the Firing Pin Spring Guide broke by fatigue in a rather light used M9-A1 (around 600-800 shots.
See it here:

Here you can see two additional fractures that can breake in any moment ...

I'm perplexed by this problem ... any ideas about the cause? :confused:

This issue isn't a recoil rod problem, this is the striker rod. The only thing I can think of that could be producing that much abuse to this is a problem with the machining of the slide itself or the back slide cover being cocked to where it is putting pressure on the edge of the striker spring rod instead of it resting flat against the back cover. I wish you luck.
