I noticed a small barely discernible indentation on my polymer guide rod about only 1/32 long kinda like you would take a knife and barely shave the surface. I could hardly feel it when I slid my finger over it so I re-assembled my gun . What would cause this mark and should I sand a certain part to elimimate any friction that might be present? I do have a metal guide rod which I haven't used yet should I install it the next time I breakdown the gun ? Is polymer or steel just a personal choice no advantage to either?

rimfire,
It's normal for your polymer guide rod to get a few nicks and scratches; this doesn't seem to affect performance or reliability in the slightest.
It's really up the the individual owner about steel guide rods in the P-32; some like 'em, some don't.
Either one will function just fine!

I have used 400 sandpaper to touch up tiny burs on my factory rod twice in its life and I am sneakin up on 1000 rounds. Viva la polymer!

Guide rod scrapes are caused by burrs on the rod guide piece. Looking at this piece you will see that the inner surface has a sharp edge around the hole for the rod.Rotating a sharp drill bit by hand against this edge will bevel it, removing the cause of damage.

Make a phone call to KT and explain that you are having some damage on your polymer guide rod.....they'll probably through a few spare ones in an envelope to you at no charge.
