I was finishing up after chronographing some new loads and got a little sloppy firing some of my older loads. I knew as soon as the shot broke that I'd jerked the trigger, and then I saw half of the back screen on my Beta Master was hanging by one rod. I dropped the mag, cleared the gun, and went to inspect the damage. Some searching around, and I found the other rod, bent about 45*, on the ground. I bent it back as straight as I could using just my hands and a shooting bench. The screen has some minor looking cracking around where the two halves join. I put it all back together, fired a few more shots with it, and pronounced it functional. I'd already bought some dowels to use as rods...but haven't gotten around to cutting them. I guess I'll do that tonight. When doing that, do you cut them the same length as the single steel rod sections?
