I'll go first - my Sig 226. This is the second set of grips as I cracked the first set (don't ask how). I've thought about refinishing this gun, but the weathered look is starting to grow on me. Not one stoppage ever BTW.

Either I have bad luck or I'm doing something wrong, because I have zero weapons that I can claim have had "zero stoppages". This includes various Sigs, Glock, AR's,.... you name it.


ETA: Are those seatbelt clasp dings?

Hey brother, an earlier post with that photo of yours is actually what inspired this thread!

hmm, i don't have an EDC that has character. My G27 which has about 7 or 8 years of carrying still looks like it could be NIB ! For the record i've carried it in a bladetech kydex holster in humid hot northern va for all of that time and i just recently decided to peal the agrip stuff off of it.

Holy crap? Really? 30,000 rounds? Are you sure? Damn... that's incredible. Have you had to replace anything?

I replaced the recoil spring assembly at 20K. It wasn't malfucntioning, but it was cycling slightly slower. It was still the original non-captured unit that came in the pistol when it was new in 1988. I have put 30,000 rounds on it in the 7 or so years I've had it. The original owner didn't keep track in the 11 years he had it, so I don't know the total round count.

That is truly incredible! I'm impressed that you haven't even needed to replace the barrel. I would have figured that the frame would've died by then, especially since they're plastic. Wow.

The barrel and frame will last longer than I will. I personally know guys who have two and three times as many rounds on thier GLOCK pistols. There are a few GLOCKs that are documented to have SEVERAL HUNDRED THOUSAND ROUNDS through them and are still working just fine.

Thanks triburst1. There's definitely something to be said for those Glock pistols. My G19 has been a great gun and I truly love it. I've only got 906 rounds through mine though .
