How many rounds to you have through your Glock?

Still orignial springs and stuff or have you changed them out?

I have put around 6000 rnds and I bought it used. I had to replace the trigger return spring at 3500 or so. Other than that no problems.

I have put over 5000 rounds through my Glock 34. 0 malfunctions and have cleaned it once.

I'm upwards of 10,000+ through my glock 19...I am very strict on firearms maintenance and throughly clean the pistol after every range session.

I'm still below a thousand rounds through the 26 but expect that it will hold up just as well as the 19.

The only modifications I have to either pistol is "the plug" and the .25 cent trigger job.

btw...my vote didnt go through

I've had a Glock 19 for about 15 years. I suspect I've fired about 5000 rounds thru it.
The only problem that I've had was a broken spring that reset the trigger. It cost about
$1 to fix.

Great guns!

My reply was simply a guess as I'm not the type to keep track of such things. I usually only pay attention up to maybe 1000 rounds. Beyond that it's anybody's guess

Well... another 500 thru my G19 last weekend... still 0 problems.
Link Posted: 9/7/2004 10:58:48 PM EST
Well over 50k. I shoot around 2k a month, 2-3 pistol matches a weekend, not counting practice. I've pretty much done all the modifications to the G35 within USPSA limited division specifications. Of the stuff that works is the Charlie Vanek trigger job, and Dawson fiber optic sights. Everything thing else is just to look cool, or give the .01 bit of edge. Mag well, 15# recoil spring, ext tung guide rod, blah blah blah.

Oh the vast majority of the 50k+ though the glock are reloads. 180 grain jacket bullet, 6 grains long shot, 1.125 OAL. Makes major power factor and recoil is very managable.

Your shooting reloads thru your G35! Are these your own or mass produced?

I kinda cheated, the Glock 17 at my now closed indoor range Santa Anita Firing Range(Monrovia, CA, 10 miles east of L.A.) had 750,000 rounds thru their rental Glock 17. The slide cracked at 500,000 and was replaced. The 750,000 is probably higher because this is just for ammo bought at the range, often people smuggle in extra ammo. Their idea of cleaning is when the customer has jamming problems, and they spray on some cleaning sovlent and brush it down, reassemble and away it goes, all in about 30 secs if that long.

My G19 has over 3400 rounds through it. I hope to put another 1000 through it Saturday at BRD. My new G17 has 800 rounds through it so far.

I swaped in my old 23 a year ago with the rangemaster for a gen. 3. A detective on the SWAT team had left the department for DEA and it had been his. Probably pushing 1000 on this one, plus what ever he put through it. The trade in had at least 3000 though with only a recoil spring replacement. You will never convince me that the Glock is not the best there is when it comes to a combat pistol.

12K+ through my Glock 23. I haven't replaced anything on it. The Glock armorer I talked to said there was no need to yet.

Edited to add : I've had 0 malfunctions as well.

G20, tuned it up 300 rnds ago

They are my own reloads/handloads. Despite what the Glock legal department would have you believe you can shoot reloads safely though your glock if you know what your doing. Of course if you don't know what your doing and double charge your powder your going to have a kB. Then again a double charged round is going to kB in any gun. I would also recommend that you don't shoot lead, but if you must then there are certain guidlines. The best being is to get a aftermarket barrel. If you use the factory glock barrel like I do then it's molly coated lead, do not push it past 1000 fps, and clean the barrel every 500 rounds. I myself just shoot jacketed bullets and clean my gun every 3 months or 6000 rounds.

~6000 rounds (conservative) - G19 - almost entirely Win. White box, and CCI blazer. Still looks new. All original except for extended slide stop and extended mag release... but that was personal preference, not failure.
Link Posted: 9/8/2004 4:14:32 PM EST


5000+.........Damn I love those win. white boxes Stock pistol with the occasional cleaning. I had a few problems with the 10rd mag followers but that was easy enough to fix.

Link Posted: 9/8/2004 5:22:26 PM EST
A little over 1500 through my G26 with no failures. Glocks are #1 for a reason, they go bang everytime. I will never be without a Glock.

I had to choose 0-500, as I have made it a point, not to own any plastic guns that fire real bullets.
