How are these things holding up for people? What are your round counts at roughly?

Thinking about buying one and if I even break out a 22LR, I put 500 to 1000 rounds down range in a single trip. I actually wore out one Ruger 10/22 and broke the slide on my Walther P22 around 20,000 arounds doing 500~1000 round range trips 2 or 3 times a month.

Just curious.

I havent kept a running number or anything but I shoot at least 1k every time ive taken it to the range or to the desert, so with that in mind I would say my count is around 10 - 11k. It makes me wonder when things are going to break simply because of wear...

That's my concern too.

I hope they took that into account when they built them. You know what though... With these things catching on like they are, I could see people like Ed over ad HDPS making upgraded parts.

Hell anyone with access to a CNC shop could.

I would really like to see one of the gunsmiths out there offering service specifically for this little rifle, I know most probably look down on it because of the airsoft origin but I have found it to be a really accurate and fun little plinker and I would jump on the chance to get some internal upgrades that will increase its longevity.
I just submitted my form 1 to sbr it and I cant wait to get the thing chopped to the proper length and add a three lug on the end so you cant tell it isnt the real thing at first glance.
