Who has run the MOST rounds through their AR without changing any major parts (like the barrel)? Is it still accurate after all those rounds?

I am new to the AR and have about 800 rounds through my CMP rifle, can ANYONE beat that???

I have had mine for a year or so and have put 1500+ rounds through it. finished the first 1000 round case 2 months ago and bought another 600 rounds that is almost done plus the rounds that I fired before I bought the 2nd case. I did all that while shooting at a state range with 3 rounds per mag limit. No mag dumps (OK may 1 or 2 whe I was the only one at the range. :) ) edited to add: My Bushy stills looks like new, tight as a catholic school girl (OK maybe not a good analogy)

I have run more rounds through my AR than anyone else. In fact, no one else has ever fired it. What do I win?

I dunno if this is relevant, but I shot some 6500 rounds from march to the end of may, when I broke the bolt carrier and the extractor because of a bad reload. I did shot with a K23 stubby (7inches barrel)

I bought a Colt SP-1 in 1969 (Ser.# 14xxx) and over the next 10 years put approx 14,000 rounds through it. Most of it was target shooting, but also did in some coyotes, coons, badgers, jack rabbits, etc. Total replacements: 1 trigger group, 1 barrel. I still have the rifle. Incidentally, it was deadly on varmints.

I have an M16 lower with over 60,000 on it. Multiple barrels though.

I had a Colt M1 that went through about 9000 rounds, and then I had to change the firing pin, then it ran another 7500 and the extractor broke, and that was about it, it is about 5000 rounds later, I have all of the parts on hand for when something goes wrong.

I put 68 rounds of 458 SOCOM through one of mine in less than a half an hour. Do I win? Sluggo

I've got about 1800 rounds through my Colt since I bought it new about a month and a half ago. Lovin every minute of it.

Let’s see now. Picked up in late March. I’ve only fired it on three occasions thus far. Three 30 rounders reloaded 3 times 2nd time. Or 270. Figure 271 the last time. And 200 plus unknown reloads 1st time. Figure around 900 rounds sent downrange, minimum. I should beat 2,000 before the summer is over very easily. And how many followed my Math?

This is the bolt from a COLT SP-1 I bought used. I don't know how many rounds have been thru it, but it looks like a shitload of hot handloads... [img]http://www.hunt101.com/img/052045.JPG[/img]

I have a little over 2300 through a V-match without a cleaning. I am probably pushing 5,000 since I bought it new. I put three South African battle packs through it last Saturday and Sunday. I am trying to see how long I can go until the groups start opening up or I have a failure. It still piles the brass in a nice little pile and shoots sub-moa. I did get a ground squirrel at 550yds. I did miss a few times before I finally got him. cruizer

I've shot exactly 40 rounds through my newly-bought but used Bushmaster. Booyah Grandma.
