I was out shooting my new MPX again yesterday and really like it! Just curious how many rounds you have through your MPX so far? Seems to be well built.

Bought mine May 1st, shot 60 suppressed flawless rounds this past weekend. I like it so far. Waiting on my Form 1 to clear before I do any major blasting. Also, I chopped the barrel to 4.5" and had no issues.

Has SIG said they are going to replace charging handles free of charge?

Or when version 2 is coming?

60 rounds. I wanted to function test it before I did the NFA paperwork. Now I am just waiting on my stamp and stock before I do some serious shooting.

0. Cause I'm too poor to buy one.

0, rounds won't see the light of day until I get the form 1.

I'm at about 12,500 suppressed +- 500. And 250 unsuppressed.
Gas vavle cleaned at 9k and 12.5. It get unreliable around 8k without cleaning gas valve.

Yeah no issues on charging handle since I did my paperclip trick.
Spent well over the price of the gun now on ammo so cares.

Noticing some recoil spring wear and some guide rod wear. Thats about it.
No pin wear.

Somewhere between 800-1000, of which only 50 or less were semi auto, the rest being fun switch mode.

The factory extractor spring was a POS, and got replaced in the first ~150 rounds with an extra power spring and a donut. Now it's singing along merrily. The weekend of the 12th I'm guessing it is gonna get 2k or more shot through it all FA.

Wow that's alot! That was I was looking for..high round count and seeing how things were holding up. Sounds like it's still going strong! I might try the paperclip trick this afternoon.

Also had to clean the inside of the handgaurd ever 5k since the piston valve vents into the handgaurd.

Only a few hundred. Won't consider it a "real" hard use gun until SIG gets their thumbs out of their asses with the mag situation. Until they're available and <$50, it's just a fun toy.

You might want to give them a call about the 3 mag special. I assume they are still running it.

I had forgotten about that. Will have to jump on it if I can.

I'm glad SIG chose Lancer. I think their AR mags are the best around. But, even accounting for the cost of a smaller scale production, and that SIG probably wants a fat margin on them, $70 is too much for an MSRP. I see L5's go for $15 all the time.

Mag deal and 20% off runs through 12/31.

About 1,000 or so. Half of that suppressed. Had to oil the bolt after 600 rounds, but has otherwise been flawless. Aside from my registered FA M11, it is one of my favorite guns.
