Anyway, none of this was serious pistol work; it was mostly the next step above "dirtshooting". My main goal was just to finish up the 2k rounds. And I did.
This brings the total to 2000 rounds fired with one failure to feed (#978) and three suspect primers (#903, #1323, #1495). The firearm has not been cleaned or lubricated in any way. Here in the next day or two, I'll take it down and take some closeup photos of the filth before cleaning and lubing it.
I want to do the next test on something different; a .45 or a .380 or something like that, but ammo costs will be a bear. (The costs are bad enough for 9mm; I'd reload, but that adds an extra variable to the test. Plus most people don't reload, and so factory ammo is more representative.) I need to find an ammo sponsor for these things. While I'm looking for one, if anyone wants to hit the "Starving Artist Ammo Fund" tip jar in the right sidebar, it won't hurt my feelings one bit.
